Hello Central Give Me No-Man's Land

This song is by Henry Burr and appears on the compilation Over There! (2011).

When the gray shadows creep
And the world is asleep
In the still of the night
Baby creeps down a flight
First she looks all around
Without making a sound
The baby toddles up to the telephone
And whispers in a baby tone

"Hello, Central! Give me No Man's Land
My daddy's there, my mamma told me
She tip-toed off to bed
After my prayers were said
Don't ring when you get the number
Or you'll disturb mamma's slumber

I'm afraid to stand here at the 'phone
'Cause I'm alone
So won't you hurry
I want to know why mamma starts to weep
When I say, 'Now I lay me down to sleep'
Hello, Central! Give me No Man's Land

I'm afraid to stand here at the 'phone
'Cause I'm alone
So won't you hurry
I want to know why mamma starts to weep
When I say, 'Now I lay me down to sleep'
Hello, Central! Give me No Man's Land
