"Don't Hang Up" as written by and Lol/godley Creme....
Hello there
How have you been
I've called a million times
But to me you're never in
I know I never had the style
or dash of Errol Flynn
But I loved you

I'm doing really well
I'm as happy as a lark
I got a new apartment
It's as safe as Central Park
And if they ever mug me
When I'm walking in the dark
Will you know

Don't hang up
Don't hang up

Rolled up in my camera
With the big cheese up above
I stumbled from my stag night
To a never ending limousine

The band went la di da di da
And I got loady do di dodied
Lousy violins began to play
I went no no no
And as the vol-au-vents exploded
I was walking down the aisle the other way

Don't hang up
Don't hang up
Don't say, oh
Nobody's safe in our house

Leave me alone
But a but a please
Leave me alone
Just a mo, a minute
I'm so alone

We had
Some honeymoon on itchy bedding
Scum buzzing round your busy body
Dumb waiters waiting sweating straining
All mass-debating my woman

We got a
Bum Guatemala pensione
Crumbling about our ears, Ole
Even the trash man he say

You got a dustbin romance
It's going down the drain
You got a low impedance
She's got a rocky terrain

Oh, you got a lot to learn
Oh, you got a lot to learn
You got a lot to learn about women
A lot to learn about women women
What's to learn about women
We've both got a lot to learn

Surprise surprise
There's a hell of a well in your eyes
Have we won the no Nobel Prize
Has the color run out of our dyes

Surprise surprise
There's a hell of a well in your eyes
When the barman said "What're you drinking?"
I said marriage on the rocks

I know I never had the style
or dash of Errol Flynn
But I loved you

Don't hang up
Don't hang up
Don't say

    General CommentThis is a song about a man desperately wanting to get back together with his ex-wife. He's calling her, but she doesn't want to speak with him, so he can only beg her not to hang up. I assume the middle section is describing how they came to be divorced.
    This song is incredibly sad, and Godley's vocals portray the desperation of the main character so well. It's the perfect song to bring an end to that era of 10cc.
