Lyric:

If you need me, why don't you call me?
Said if you need me, why don't you call me?
Don't wait too long, when things go wrong
I'll be there, yeah, where I belong

Said if you want me, why don't you send for me?
Said if you want, want, want, all you got to do is send for me
Don't wait too long, just pick up your phone
And I'll be there, right there where I belong

People always told me, darling
That you didn't mean me no good
But I know deep down in my heart
I done the best I could
And one of these days, darling, it won't be long
You're going to come walking through that door
And I know in my mind these are the very words you're going to say to me:

"I still love you, always thinking of you
I still love, love, love, always thinking of you"
Don't wait too long, when things go wrong
I'll be there, right there where I belong
