Lyrics

Somebody told her that there was a place like heaven Across the water on a 747 Yeah, we're living in In a modern world And pretty soon she's really got the notion Of flying out across the big blue ocean Yeah, we're living in In a modern world Talk is cheap on satellite But all I get is Information, I'm still here Redial on automatic [CHORUS] (Calling America) Can't get a message through (Calling America) That's what she said to do (Calling America) That's where she has to be (Calling America) She left a number for me (Calling America)

But I'm just talking to a satellite Twenty thousand miles up in the sky each night Yeah, we're living in In a modern world All I had to do was pick up the phone I'm out in space trying to talk to someone Yeah, we're living in In a modern world She left a number I could call But no one's there, no one at all There must be something going wrong That number just rings on and on [repeat CHORUS] Said she'd call when she'd been gone awhile Guess she's missing me across the miles Yeah, we're living in In a modern world [repeat CHORUS] Calling America, calling America Calling America, calling America...
