The Lyrics

Written on 10/11/84 when Bellsouth was still Southern Bell, as catharsis for phone company difficulties (based on a true event!)
Southern Bell

Southern Bell, gonna have your head
Twenty lines, every one is dead
Southern change needs to come at last
Fix my phones now and fix them fast
Southern Bell

I called once and then I called back
Different voices just gave me flack
Southern Bell, when will you pay me back
I hear static, my phone is cracklin'
How long? How long? Ding dong ding dong yeah.

Southern Bell, again my lines are down
You came out, you dug up my ground
I still can hear not a single sound
I hear static, my phone is cracklin'
How long? How long? Ding dong ding dong yeah.
