this tab is not particularly spaced for timing so listen to
the song and you'll get it quickly, its not too compliacted.

I was asked to put it in the real order as opposed to a list and i think this does make it easier to read, thanks.

lyrics:

hello operator
can you give me number nine
can I see you later
will you give me back my dime

turn me osciallator
twisty with a dollar bill
mailman bring the paper
leave it on the window sill

solo 1

find a canary
a bird to bring my message home
carry my obituary
coffin doesn't have a fone

how ya gonna get the money
send papers to an empty home
how ya gonna get the money
nobody to answer the fone

solo 2

outro
