I watch a man sitting down the park
The flashy suit manufactured by the makers
He's got a pen and he circles an add
It makes him laugh 'cause he's reading dirty papers

2-6-5-8-0

She doesn't know but she's getting his call
He's talking straight but he wants it in a strange way
She combs her hair doesn't worry at all
He could be mad but its just another pay day

2-6-5-8-0
2-6-5-8-0
2-6-5-8-0 Oh, dial it if you want to know me

She likes to live on the poor side of town
She's shacking down with a guy from West Guiana
The boys around always look at the ground
Oh, what they'd give for a night with that piranha

2-6-5-8-0
2-6-5-8-0
2-6-5-8-0 Oh, dial it if you want to know me

She doesn't have to make her money that way
She's such a pretty young girl
I guess they love it 'cause you hear when they stay
They cry oh, oh, oh

This guy arrives looking scared as a rat
He needs her love but he wants it like a brother
Three hours later he crawls out on his knees
She's laughing loud 'cause he's calling for his mother

2-6-5-8-0
2-6-5-8-0
2-6-5-8-0 Oh, dial it if you want to know me

2-6-5-8-0
2-6-5-8-0
2-6-5-8-0 Oh, dial it if you want to know me
