lyrics

Don’t call me collect from Stateline Nevada
Just to say you got a new man
He’s got a dry clean sport coat and the kids really like him
And you’ll send me pictures when you can

We were set up by a friend that I never really liked
We went to Arby’s to have ourselves a ball
It was Diet Doctor Pepper, and two beef and cheddars
Getting frisky in the ladies bathroom stall

I was a fool for thinking that our love was real
Honest serene and bonafide
Between you psychic readings and NRA meetings
I was clear you just used me for the ride

Don’t call me collect from Stateline Nevada
Just to say you got a new man
He’s a skee-ball hustler and the kids really like him
And you’ll send me pictures when you can

Your house was strewn with strange knic knacs
To sort em I never even tried
An Osmonds salt shaker, bust of Tammy Faye Baker
A tapestry of Elton John and Lady Di


Don’t call me collect from Stateline Nevada
Just to say you got a new man
He’s got a green belt in Judo and the kids really like him
And you’ll send me pictures when you can

You didn’t tell me bout you kids or their real dad
Till we’d been dating, for nigh on a year
Well they're little angels but he’s a hell’s angel
And he doesn’t want my sissy ass round here

Don’t call me collect from Stateline Nevada
Just to say you got a new man
He’s a wheat beer expert and the kids really like him
And you’ll send me pictures when you can

I tried so hard to make things work
Didn’t want our bond to fade
I said forever, you said “whatever”
And I hope to live and love another day

Don’t call me collect from Stateline Nevada
Just to say you got a new man
He’s got a Laser Disc collection and the kids really like him
And you’ll send me pictures when you can
