Message Manager Lady

I call her I’d say about three times a day
She’ll always say the same thing
Who did I miss? Was it you, Kate or Chris?
I’m just waiting for this thing to ring
And bring me closer to love

She’s my pre-recorded mama and she’s programmed to please
It ain’t her fault you never call me
You won’t leave me a message with a howdy baby
All’s I gots is a message manager lady

Mailing letters through a wire they can get there pretty quick
Just one click of a switch and it’s there
Now my love is on file in some distant database
to erase when you no longer care
So I sit and I wait and I stare

at this information screen yes it's cold and it’s mean
and it just ain’t sexy to me
You won’t leave me a message with a howdy baby
All’s I gots is a message manager lady

Then a mad scientist said, “come here and try this
machine it can chat and drink tea”
I gave it a try. It could make hours fly
So I missed the phone when you called me
Now its back to my old ami

She’s my pre-recorded mama…
