"Answering Service" as written by Gerald Edward Levert and Edwin Lamar Nicholas....
Hello this is Angela
I'm sorry I'm unable to answer this call right now
So please at the sound of the beep
Leave your name and number
And I will contact you as soon as possible

I know you're there baby
It just ain't right the way you're treating me
I just wish you would listen, and open up and try to understand how I feel
I miss you
I love you and I just want you to know
I'll always be there for you

I love you
Hope you get this message
I don't deserve this
Talking to you answering service (oh baby)
I need you (need you, I need, I need you)
Hope you get this message
I don't deserve this
Talking to your answering service

Girl I know that I hurt you
And I apologize
But I would feel so much better
If I could look into those big brown eyes
Oh baby
Is there a pleasure you get
In making me suffer like this oh
I just wanna hear you say
Hear you say I love you
Girl that's what I really miss
Why you wanna treat me like this

I love you
Hope you get this message
(I know you're missin' me) I don't deserve this
Talking to you answering service (the way I wanna treat me that's the way)
I need you, hope you get this message (I know you heard me baby)
I don't deserve this
Talking to your answering service (baby)

I know your girlfriends are there listening
But I don't really give a damn no
And you might have a man around
But baby I know I'm your only
I'm your one and only man
And I want you to know that

I love you
Hope you get this message
I don't deserve this
Talking to you answering service
I never meant to hurt girl
I need you
Hope you get this message
I don't deserve this
Talking to your answering service

I know I really hurt you deep
But since then I haven't been able to sleep
Can't you just forgive and forget but I guess not
'Cause you ain't picked up the phone yet, no no

Can't you see I'm crying baby
I know you hear me baby
Talking to your answering service
I don't deserve this
Oh oh oh baby
And I don't give a damn if your friends is listening
So why don't you

Pick up the phone and call me up (come on girl)
'Cause without you girl life is too damn tough
Too damn tough
I don't care who knows
I don't care who knows

Pick up the phone and call me up (call me up)
'Cause without you girl life is too damn tough
Life is too damn tough
Said why don't you pick up the phone

I love you (I love you)
Hope you get this message
(I'm down on my knees) I don't deserve this
I know you can't see me over the phone (talking to you answering service)
But I love you baby

I need you
Hope you get this message
I know you hear me crying baby (I don't deserve this)
Talking to your answering service (I know you hear me crying baby)

I love you (can you feel it)
Hope you get this message (why don't you ever know baby)
I don't deserve this
Talking to you answering service (I don't need to be talking to your answering service)
I need you (I should be looking into your eyes)
Hope you get this message
