Sylvia's Mother

In the style of

Dr. Hook

Lyrics

sylvia's mother
says sylvia's busy
too busy to come
to the phone

sylvia's mother says
sylvia's tryin'
to start a new life
of her own

sylvia's mother says
sylvia's happy
so why don't
you leave her alone

and the
operator says
forty cents more
for the next
three minutes

please mrs. avery i
just gotta
talk to her
i'll only keep
her awhile
please mrs. avery i
just wanna tell her
goodbye

sylvia's mother says
sylvia's packin'
she's gonna be
leavin' today

sylvia's mother
says sylvia's
marryin'
a fella down
galveston way

sylvia's mother says
please don't
say nothin'
to make her
start cryin' and stay

and the
operator says
forty cents more
for the next
three minutes

please mrs. avery i
just gotta talk to her
i'll only keep
her awhile
please mrs. avery i
just wanna tell her
goodbye

sylvia's mother says
sylvia's hurryin'
she's catchin'
the nine o'clock train
sylvia's mother says
take your umbrella
'cause sylvie
it's startin' to rain

and sylvia's
mother says
thank you for callin'
and sir won't you
call back again

and the
operator says
forty cents more
for the next
three minutes

please mrs. avery i
just gotta talk to her
i'll only keep
her awhile
tell her goodbye
please
tell her goodbye
