Lyrics Edit

Airmail, cassettes.. postcards, telex

Drop me a line, be my grapevine

I'm always trying to reach you, can't get through

Our communication depends on me and you

Got to stay in touch even though we're on the move

Keep your lines open, say, what's new

Exchange the facts, keep in contact

I keep on trying to call you but I can't get through

Our communication must get through



Communication.. don't hang up

Communication.. keep in touch

Communication.. don't put me on hold

Situation.. soul to soul



Send word, stay tuned, call me real soon

Every time I phone you, you're not home

We've got to stay in touch on the telephone

I keep on trying to reach you

But I can't get through

Our communication must get through



Communication.. baby, talk to me

Communication.. information, please

Communication.. don't put me on hold

Situation.. soul to soul



Communication.. don't hang up

Communication.. keep in touch

Communication.. don't put me on hold

Situation.. soul to soul



Communication.. baby, talk to me

Communication.. information, please

Communication.. don't put me on hold

Situation.. soul to soul



Communication.. baby, don't hang up

Communication.. keep in touch

Communication.. don't put me on hold

Situation.. soul to soul



Communication.. baby, talk to me

Communication.. information, please

Communication.. don't put me on hold

Situation.. soul to soul
