Lyrics

If you need a little lovin'
Call on me all right
If you want a little huggin'
Call on me baby, mmmmmm
Oh I'll be right here at home

All you got to do is
Pick up your telephone
And dial 634-5789
(What's my number)
634-5789

If you need a little huggin'
Call on me
That's all you got to do now
If you want some kissin'
Call on me baby, all right
No more lonely nights
Will you be alone

All you got to do is
Pick up your telephone
And dial 634-5789
(What's my number)
634-5789

Oh I'll be right there
Just as soon as I can
And if I be a little bit late now
I hope that you'll understand
Oh yeah all right
mmmmmmmm

If you need a little lovin'
Call on me
Lord have mercy
If you want some kissin'
Call on me baby
That's all you got to do now
No more lonely nights
Will you be alone

All you got to do is
Pick up your telephone
And dial 634-5789
(What's my number)
634-5789

Call me on the telephone
634-5789
No more will you be alone
634-5789
(What's my number) 634-5789
(That's my number) 634-5789
