Poetry Corner: Call Me

Orkney News HumorousAlexander Graham Bell was born at South Charlotte Street, Edinburgh on 3rd of March 1847.  Mostly known for the invention of the telephone his research on hearing and speech led him to invent devices to aid those with hearing loss and deafness. Both his wife and his mother were deaf.

Like many Scots Bell emigrated to Canada in 1870.

He founded the American Telephone and Telegraph Company (AT&T) in 1885. His research also contributed to the development of optical telecommunications, hydrofoils and aeronautics. 

Call Me

Color me your color, baby
Color me your car
Color me your color, darling
I know who you are
Come up off your color chart
I know where you’re comin’ from
Call me (call me) on the line
Call me, call me any, anytime
Call me (call me) my love
You can call me any day or night
Call me
Cover me with kisses, baby
Cover me with love
Roll me in designer sheets
I’ll never get enough
Emotions come, I don’t know why
Cover up love’s alibi
Call me (call me) on the line
Call me, call me any, anytime
Call me (call me) oh love
When you’re ready we can share the wine
Call me
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, he speaks the languages of love
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, amore, chiamami, chiamami
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, appelle-moi mon cherie, appelle-moi
Anytime, anyplace, anywhere, any way
Anytime, anyplace, anywhere, any day-ay
Call me (call me) my love
Call me, call me any, anytime
Call me (call me) for a ride
Call me, call me for some overtime
Call me (call me) my love
Call me, call me in a sweet design
Call me (call me), call me for your lover’s lover’s alibi
Call me (call me) on the line
Call me, call me any, anytime
Call me (call me)
Oh, call me, oh, oh, ah
Call me (call me) my love
Call me, call me any, anytime

  1. And there’s…..

    I Just Called to Say I Love You
    Stevie Wonder

    No New Year’s Day to celebrate
    No chocolate covered candy hearts to give away
    No first of spring
    No song to sing
    In fact here’s just another ordinary day

    No April rain
    No flowers bloom
    No wedding Saturday within the month of June
    But what it is, is something true
    Made up of these three words that I must say to you

    I just called to say I love you
    I just called to say how much I care
    I just called to say I love you
    And I mean it from the bottom of my heart

    No summer’s high
    No warm July
    No harvest moon to light one tender August night
    No autumn breeze
    No falling leaves
    Not even time for birds to fly to southern skies

    No Libra sun
    No Halloween
    No giving thanks to all the Christmas joy you bring
    But what it is, though old so new
    To fill your heart like no three words could ever do

    I just called to say I love you
    I just called to say how much I care, I do
    I just called to say I love you
    And I mean it from the bottom of my heart, of my heart,
    of my heart

    Songwriters: Stevie Wonder
