Marty Robbins - Call Me Up (And I'll Come Calling On You) Lyrics


When you're all alone and blue

And you don't know what to do

Call me up and I'll come calling on you

When you're all alone at home

And no one calls you on the phone

Call me up and I'll come calling on you

When there's teardrops big and round

In your eyes so big and brown

And your little old heart is about to break in two

Well, I know you know we know that they know

I'm in love with you

Call me up and I'll come calling on you
