"Mr. Telephone Man" as written by and E. Holloway....
Mr. Telephone man
There's something wrong with my line
When I dial my baby's number
I get a click every time
Mr. Telephone Man
There's something wrong with my line
When I dial my baby's number
I get a click every time

When I dial 611 Computer Service
She said "Hello may I help you, please?"
I told her something must be wrong with my phone
'Cause my baby wouldn't hang up on me

Mr. Telephone Man
There's something wrong with my line
When I dial my baby's number I get a click every time

Mr. Telephone Man
There's something wrong with my line
When I dial my baby's number I get a click every time

She let the phone ring twenty times before she answered
Let me tell you what happened then
A minute later I got the operator
Saying "please hang up and place your call again"

Mr. Telephone man
There's something wrong with my line
When I dial my baby's number
I get a click every time
Mr. Telephone Man
Something's wrong with my line
I thought I dialed her number
But I get a click every time

Some strange man is on the telephone
He keeps telling me my baby ain't home
She got no party line
This situation's blowing my mind
Oh, I just can't take this anymore

"Please operator
See what you can do
I dialed the right number
But I still couldn't get through
Could you just check the line
Just one more time, if you can
I'm pretty sure her phone wouldn't be answered by no man"

Mr. Telephone Man
There's something wrong with my line
When I dial my baby's number I get a click every time

Mr. Telephone Man
Something's wrong with my line
I'm trying to dial her number
But I get a click every time

Must be a bad connection
I give her my love and affection
I just can't take this no more
This situation's blowing my mind (blowing my mind)
Can't get my baby on the line

I tried dialing information (Mr. Telephone Man)
I can't get no cooperation (Mr. Telephone Man)
Her sister's on the phone telling me my baby ain't at home
Come on baby, I just can't take it no more

Help me out
Please Mr. Telephone Man
Help me out
Please Mr. Telephone Man

    Song MeaningActually, this being by a boy band, I'd say the singer must have done something to tick off his girlfriend's father; he's almost certainly the strange man who keeps answering the phone and telling him the girl isn't there. He's also probably getting very annoyed with the repeated calling by now.
