Shoo-shoo-ooh
Shoo-shoo-ooh

Maybe she'll call me (Neon telephone)
Maybe she won't (Maybe she won't)
And if she don't (Neon telephone)
I'm gonna lose my mind (This time I'm gonna lose my mind)

It's kinda dark n here (Neon telephone)
I need a light (It's 2 bright)
I could use a sexy situation that would do my body just right
2night I'm gonna lose my mind

Shoo-shoo-ooh
Do do doo, do do doo

Sometimes her pride is like a big tall building
It hides the street that leads 2 a sweet mystery
Sometimes we blow the chance 2 b so happy
If we could only make up our minds
We could have such a good time

I know she wants me (Neon telephone)
I know she cares (I don't care)
Tell me what's stoppin' me (We don't get along)
From runnin' right over there and runnin' my fingers thru ur hair

I'm goin' crazy, yes I am (Neon telephone)
Why can't U understand? (He needs 2 change)
I can't stop thinkin' about U, baby
This time I'm gonna lose my mind (This time I'm gonna lose it)

Why can't U call me, baby? Pick up the phone
U know ur little Prince can't b alone
I need some of ur sweet, sweet... oooh!

Whoo (Neon telephone)
I don't care (I don't care)
Shoo-shoo-ooh (Neon telephone)
Do do doo, do do doo

Hello
How come U didn't call?
What, U think U're 2 good or somethin'?
Can I talk 2 U?
R U alone?
Good God
