The Lyrics

It's no use leaving me those voicemails, those voicemails
Oh, that tell me all the details, details.
Heard a ring, ring, ring, I don't care
They got it messed up too
The wrong number they call, the wrong voicemail they leave
I'll delete it, won't call you

Well, no one saw the right number, the right number
Called the wrong one, I hate when this occurs, when this occurs
Cause someone called me the wrong name, I think they are to blame

They got the wrong name, they got the wrong number, called the wrong line, it's true
Got the wrong name, and got the wrong number, I never will call you

Don't keep leaving all those voicemails, those voicemails
You can do that but you know it's to no avail
Heard a ring ring ring, don't pick it up
You got it messed up too
'Cause the longer you call, the longer you talk
No, I never will call you, will call you, You just don't have a clue

Got the wrong name, they got the wrong number, called the wrong line, it's true
Got the wrong name, and got the wrong number, I never will call you

My ringer is off now, all those calls I hate
I still hear on my voicemail
And it all sounds just like a beached whale
And though my ears are hurting
Still you know those words you're blurting
'Cause you hear the greeting's different (keep calling, keep calling)
Oh, but still to the phone you sprint (keep calling, keep calling)
So I don't answer the telephone
Don't you ever ever ever call me at home
And though my ears are pounding
I can hear your voice resounding
I'll delete it real fast

Now I don't know how you sleep at night, sleep at night
And I just feel this is not all right, not all right
Heard a ring ring ring, I don't talk
Oh, I don't really care
'Cause the longer you call, the longer you talk
I'm just gonna delete you, delete you, I'm hoping that you'll stop, it's true

Got the wrong name, they got the wrong number, called the wrong line, it's true
Got the wrong name, and got the wrong number, I never will call you

Got the wrong name, they got the wrong number, called the wrong line, it's true
Got the wrong name, and got the wrong number, but you don't have a clue
