I had a lover, but haven’t we all
He had to leave so sometimes I’d call
I was lost and living in the real world
I’d call.

Satellites are blinking all through the night
Wishes like this don’t seem right
Rising and falling as I make my request
Hello, operator, can I make this collect.

Higher and higher, burns the fire
Love’s lost on the telephone wire
Too high to reach, too hot to hold
Wishing on telstar, should’ve been told.

Person to person, looking for affection
Do I just break through or do I have to wait
(person to person) it sure hurts when you get away
My long distance lover, can I make you stay.

Higher and higher, burns the fire
Love’s lost on the telephone wire
Too high to reach, too hot to hold
Wishing on telstar, should’ve been told.

Hello? operator?
Hello, hello. operator?
Hello, hello? hello, hello?

Wishing on telstar
Should’ve been, should’ve been
Wishing on telstar
Should’ve been told.

Higher and higher, burns the fire
Love’s lost on the telephone wire
Too high to reach, too hot to hold
Wishing on telstar, should’ve been told.

Wishing on telstar (hello, operator? )
Should’ve been told (hello, hello, operator? )
Wishing on, wishing on telstar (operator? )
Should’ve been told
Wishing on telstar.

Hello? operator?
Hello?
