Wikipedia has an article on
Calling America
(Somebody...)
Told her that there was a place like heaven
Across the water on a 747
Yeah, we're living in,
In a modern world.

And pretty soon, she's really got the notion
Of flying out across the big blue ocean
Yeah, we're living in,
In a modern world.

Talk is cheap on satellite
But all I get is (static!)
Information, I'm still here
Re-dial on automatic.

Calling America (can't get a message through)
Calling America (that's what she said to do)
Calling America (that's where she has to be)
Calling America (she left a number for me)
Calling America.

But I'm just talking to a satellite
Twenty thousand miles up in the sky each night
Yeah, we're living in,
In a modern world.

All I had to do was pick up the phone
I'm out in space, trying to talk to someone
Yeah, we're living in,
In a modern world.

She left a number I could call
But no one's there, no one at all
There must be something going wrong
That number just rings on and on.

Calling America (can't get a message through)
Calling America (that's what she said to do)
Calling America (that's where she has to be)
Calling America (she left a number for me)
Calling America.

Said she'd call when she'd been gone a while
Guess she's missing me across the miles
Yeah, we're living in,
In a modern world.

Calling America (can't get a message through)
Calling America (that's what she said to do)
Calling America (that's where she has to be)
Calling America (she left a number for me).

Calling America, calling America
Calling America, calling America
Calling America, calling America
Calling America...
