The rock'n'roll B-side to 'Howl', the first single released from 'MOTEL'.


My baby don't return my calls
No, he don't call me back no more (don't call me back no more)
Mornin', noon and evening time, just wanna make sure he's alright,
But, he don't pick up that phone (don't pick up that, aah)
I don't know what I'm to do,
With this little love I have for you

Tell me, baby, what are you up to?
Tell me, honey, why can't I get through? (Why can't I get through)
All I do is wait around, I feel so lonesome in this house
I'm fed up waiting up for you
While you're out misbehaving,
I'm sitting all alone just craving some of your time

Whoa, my baby don't pick up that phone
Always hear that ringing tone (always hear that ringin' tone)
Only call ten times a day
Why does he treat me this way?
Oh, I just can't let him go (just can't let him go)
I know what I've got to do,
But it doesn't make it easy when I love you,
Don't care if you dare call me a fool,
I'll keep trying to get on through to you.
