Lyrics to song The Red Telephone by Love

Verse 1:
Sitting on a hillside,
Watching all the people die.
I'll feel much better on the other side.
I'll thumb a ride.

Verse 2:
I believe in magic.
Why? Because it is so quick.
I don't need power when I'm hypnotized.
Look in my eyes.
What are you seeing?
(I see...)
How do you feel?
I feel real phony when my name is Phil.
Or was that Bill?

Instrumental break.

Backup singers: "Sha-lala, la-la, la-la-la/Sha-lala, la-la-la-la-la-la" over
the first line of the bridge.

Bridge:
Life goes on here day after day.
I don't know if I am living,
Or if I'm Supposed to be.
Sometimes my life is so eerie,
And if you think I'm happy.
Paint me white/(yellow).

Backup singers: "Sha-lala, la-la, la-la-la/Sha-lala, la-la-la-la-la-la" over
the first two lines of the next verse.

Verse 3:
I've been here once.
I've been here twice.
I don't know if the third's the fourth,
Or if the fifth's to fix.
Sometimes I deal with numbers,
And if you wanna count me.
Count me out.

Verse 4:
I don't need the times of day.
Anytime with me's OK.
I just don't want you usin' up my time.
'Cause that's not right.

Coda:
Ahhhh.
Ahhhh.
Ahh-ahh-ahh.

Chanted in a sing-song fashion:
They're locking them up today.
They're throwin' away the key.
I wonder who it'll be tomorrow,
You or me?

They're locking them up today.
They're throwin' away the key.
I wonder who it'll be tomorrow,
You or me?

They're locking them up today.
They're throwin' away the key.
I wonder who it'll be tomorrow,
You or me?

We're all normal and we want our freedom.
Freedom, freedom, freedom,
Freedom, freedom, freedom.
I want my freedom.

Spoken:
Alla God's chilluns gotta have dere freedom.
