Operator nine-one-one
My heart is hurting bad - can you send someone?
Yes, ma'am - I'm here all alone
No one to talk to but the telephone

My soul is turning, turning blue
Can you save me - can you tell me what to do?
Gonna need a good transfusion
To give me back the love I'm losing

Can't find no vital signs
Don't guess I'm going to make it this time
No doctor in the world would say I'm fine
Just talk to me a while and be my friend, oh

Where do I go to get some comfort?
Where do I go to get some healing?
Where do I go when I can't go home?
A man in my condition ain't supposed to be alone, oh

Operator nine-one-one
My heart is broke so bad - I'm gonna die
When my baby left last night
She said her love for me was just a lie, my oh my

She left a note beside the bed
All she had to say was what she said:
Packed her bags and went to the city
She's leaving me alone - she got no pity

Can't feel no vital signs
Don't guess I'm going to make it - this time
No doctor in the world - would say I'm fine, yeah
Just talk to me a while - and be my friend, oh

Where do I go - to get some comfort?
Where do I go - to get some healing?
Where do I go - when I can't go home?
A man in my condition ain't supposed to be alone, oh, oh, oh

Where do I go - for some comfort?
Where do I go - to get some healing?
Where do I go - when I can't go home?
There's no one there who cares for me - I can't be all alone

Oh, operator, what I need is some sweet, sweet love, yeah
I need love right now more than ever in my life before
Only love will rescue me - it will heal and make me whole
I'm going to be alright when someone comes along who's gonna hold me close all night and give me comfort until morning

Oh operator, I need some comfort
I need some healing, I need some love, sweet love
I got the fever, my soul is burning
My heart is yearning, oh operator
My hands are shaking, shaking
No, I ain't faking
Where do I go?
Oh operator
Where do I go ...
