[D]Sylvia's mother says S[A]ylvia's happy...
So w[E]hy don't you leave her a[A]lone?
And the [E]operator says :" Forty cents more, for the next three minutes."

        Ple[D]ase Mrs. Avery, I've j[A]ust got to talk to her
        [E]I'll only keep her a wh[A]ile
        [D]Please Mrs. Avery, just w[A]ant to tell her
        Goodb[E]ye...

Sylvia's mother says Sylvia's marrying, a fellow down Galveston-W[A]ay
[D]Sylvia's mother says "P[A]lease don't say nothing...
To m[E]ake her start crying and[A] stay."
And the [E]operator says :" Forty cents more, for the next three minutes."

And [D]Sylvia's mother says "T[A]hank you for calling...
And so [E]won't you come back agai[A]n."
