"Operators Are Standing By" as written by and John C./linnell Flansburgh....
Smoking cigarettes and drinking coffee
Bounce their shoes at the end of their feet
And wish they could go home
Operators are standing by
Poking holes in the ceiling tiles
Making jokes about their old boyfriends
And days gone by
Operators are standing by
Talking about their portrayal
On the TV when an actress sits
with a headset in outer space
That's enough talking, ladies
Operators are standing by
Smoking cigarettes and drinking coffee
Pass around a picture of a mobius strip
And wish they could go home
