Bad Connection
Vince Clarke
Morning this morning the curtains are shut
I'll ring you in the morning but the phone's been cut
Can you hear me?
I've been calling all day
Can you hear me?
The radio reporter said the lines are all dead
He told me that I oughta write a letter instead
Can you hear me?
I've been calling all day
Can you hear me?

I wish they'd fix the wires 'cause my baby don't know
That I'm leaving in the morning and I'm ready to go
Can you hear me?
I've been calling all day
Can you hear me?

And if I write a letter it won't get there on time
I'll only reach you baby on the telephone line
Can you hear me?
I've been calling all day
Can you hear me?
My car's all ready and my bags are all packed
I'm late already and I won't be back
Can you hear me?
I've been calling all day
Can you hear me?

I wish they'd fix the wires 'cause my baby don't know
That I'm leaving in the morning and I'm ready to go
Can you hear me?
I've been calling all day
Can you hear me?

Oh, can you hear me?
