"Your Phone's Off the Hook, But You're Not" as written by and Doe Dervenka....
someone clean to chew on a wife that no one likes he called and they said all of new york is a tow-away zone he paid sixty dollars on 12th street today and now all my money's gone you don't have to answer me you don't have to call me back your phones off the hook, but you're not you hate my older sister and burglarize her home your dirty invitation waits run over on my street i don't care who you don't like you don't have to answer me you don't have to answer me you don't have to call me back your phones off the hook, but you're not

    General CommentThe "all of New York is a tow-away zone" is known to be what a tow truck driver said while towing away the band's van on a trip to New York (I think to play at CBGBs).
