Silver Convention

(Germany 1977)

Since you're gone I'm all alone 
Stop 
Just can't make it on my own 
Stop 
Operator, did you get the line
Rush a cable, for I've got no time 

Gotta send a telegram 
Telegram to my baby 
Yes, I'm gonna send a telegram 
Telegram, and then maybe 
He won't keep me yearning 
Tonight he'll be on his way 
Tomorrow he'll be here to stay 
Help me then - I can't wait another day 

Please forgive the things I said 
Stop 
Didn't mean to make you sad 
Stop 
Operator, I'll pay any rate 
If my message will not be too late 

Gotta send a telegram 
Telegram to my baby 
Yes, I'm gonna send a telegram 
Telegram, and then maybe 
He won't keep me yearning 
Tonight he'll be on his way 
Tomorrow he'll be here to stay 
Help me then - I can't wait another day 

I was such a fool to let him go 
Too proud to show that I love him so

Help me then - gotta send a telegram
