Take a Message

This song is by James Cotton and appears on the album Living The Blues (1994).

Everytime I'm relaxing, the telephone rings
Man, it's really getting to me, I really hate that thing
Take a message baby, just tell 'em I'm not home
Yeah, those telephone people
They just don't leave you alone

It might be the neighbor, the insurance man
It could be the boss man, girl, I just don't give a damn
Take a message baby, Tell 'em all that I'm up to date
I just don't feel much like talking
Nobody listens anyway ' makes me so mad

Everytime me and my baby, is getting' in the groove
The telephone rings and it blows my attitude
Take a message baby, just tell 'em I'm not here
You can tell 'em all the same thing
Yeah, when they call back again

That telephone keeps ringing, If I get one more call
Gonna take my 10-pound hammer, knock it right off the wall
Take a message baby, just tell 'em I'm not home
Yeah, the nerve of some people
They just don't leave you alone
