Mr. Rockefeller — Bette Midler

Mr. Rockefeller — Bette Midler

“Hi, operator.”

“May I help you?”

“Yeah, it’s me again.
Did you get him on the line yet?
Oh, this is awful.
I’ve been trying to get him all day.
No, it’s okay. I’ll wait.”

Mr. Rockefeller, how are you?
Mr. Rockefeller, having fun?
Mr. Rockefeller, I could use a few
If you’d like to send a few down my way

Mr. Rockefeller, I get my magazines
I see you on the TV too, yeah
Mr. Rockefeller, they tell me
They tell me all about it
But they don’t tell me how are you

Sometimes I think I know you
Sometimes I think I don’t
Sometimes I think we’ll make it
Sometimes I think we won’t

Waiting on the wire
And I’m ragged to the bone
Mr. Rockefeller, won’t you
Please pick up the phone

The reason I’m calling is to say
I’m not feeling so good
I’m all broken down

My family is nervous
And my thoughts are blue
But I want to know, I gotta know
I’m askin’ everybody how are you?

Please, won’t you answer me?
Won’t you take the time?
The next call’s got to be collect
Cause this is my last dime
Waiting on the wire
And I’m ragged to the bone
Mr. Rockefeller, please pick up the phone

Mr. Rockefeller, how are you?
Mr. Rockefeller, having fun?
Mr. Rockefeller, how are you?
Mr. Rockefeller, having fun?

Mr. Rockefeller, please, Mr. Rockefeller
Mr. Rockefeller

Mr. Rockefeller, wouldn’t it be nice?
Mr. Rockefeller
