(Words by Lowell George)

Well, my telephone is ringin', they told me
They told me it was Chairman Mao-uh
Well, my telephone is ringin'
Only it was Chairman Mao
Ah you, just tell him anything
I just don't wanna talk to him now
Not now, baby

I got me my apolitical blues
An' it's the
meanest blues around
Talk about the apolitical blues
Baby, it's the meanest blues around-uh
Now, I don't care if you're John Lennon, baby, I just
I just d-do-don't wanna take no calls-uh
No calls baby
Just wanna play the blues

Hey, ah my telephone is ringin', they told me
They told me it was Chairman Mao-oh
Yeah, my telephone is ringin'
An' they told me it was Chairman Mao
Uh, mama, just tell him anything

I-I just don't wanna talk
I d-d-don't wanna talk
I d- I d-don't wanna talk to him now, no
No calls! No calls
