The phone

the phone did ring
tring tring, tring tring
so I answered the phone
done the decent thing

hello said I
hello Joe said he
I could tell right away
it wasn't for me

'cos my name is Roy
it is not Joe
that call's not for me
that's how I know

Joe's not here
where is he? he yelled
better brace yourself
before I tell

he is on a plane
up in the sky
a jumbo said he
the astral said I

'cos Joe is dead
are you sure said he
we buried him last week
so he is bound to be

by Roy Robertson
