Sylvia's Mother 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, '40 cents more for the next 3 minutes'
Please Mrs. Avery, I just gotta talk to her
I'll only keep her a while
Please Mrs. Avery, I just wanna tell 'er 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, '40 cents more for the next 3 minutes'
Please Mrs. Avery, I just gotta talk to her
I'll only keep her a while
Please Mrs. Avery, I just wanna tell 'er 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, '40 cents more for the next 3 minutes'
Please Mrs. Avery, I just gotta talk to her
I'll only keep her a while
Please Mrs. Avery, I just wanna tell 'er goodbye

Tell her goodbye

Please
Tell her goodbye
