Yazoo - Bad Connection Lyrics



Morning, this morning, the curtains are shut
I'll ring you in the morning, but the phone's been cut
Can you hear me? (oo, can you hear me? oo, can you hear me?)
I've been calling all day
Can you hear me? (oo, can you hear me? oo, can you hear me?)
The radio reporter said the line's all dead
He told me that I oughta write a letter instead
Can you hear me? (oo, can you hear me? oo, can you hear me?)
I've been calling all day
Can you hear me? (oo, can you hear me? oo, can you hear me?)

[CHORUS]
I'd wish they'd fix the wires, 'cause my baby don't know
That I'm leaving in the morning, and I'm ready to go
Can you hear me? can you hear me at all?
Gotta get the operator, make a telephone call

And if I write a letter it won't get there on time
I'll only reach you, baby, on the telephone line
Can you hear me? (oo, can you hear me? oo, can you hear me?)
I've been calling all day
Can you hear me? (oo, can you hear me? oo, can you hear me?)
My car's all ready, and my bags are all packed
I'm late already, and I won't be back
Can you hear me? (oo, can you hear me? oo, can you hear me?)
I've been calling you all day
Can you hear me? (oo, can you hear me? oo, can you hear me?)

[CHORUS]

Do do do do-do-do do do do
Do do do do-do-do do do do
Do do do do-do-do do do do
Do do do do-do-do do do do

(Can I help you?
(Hello?)
(You're playing with the phone, aren't you?)
(A person with no voice answering)
(I'm talking to the person who's got no voice who's at the other end of this telephone)
(Getting his little kicks playing on the telephone)

[CHORUS]

(Oo, can you hear me?)
(Oo, can you hear me?)
(Oo, can you hear me?)
(Oo, can you hear me?)
(Oo, can you hear me?)
(Oo, can you hear me?)
(Oo, can you hear me?)
(Oo, can you hear me?)

  14. Gabriel Ratliff

    I've heard it on Star 98.7 KYSR.

  15. Cl4rendon

    Fun Fact: DAF did a song on their 1981 album "Gold und Liebe" called " Liebe auf dem ersten Blick" The synth intro is quite similar to this song - DAF were on Mute records prior to that release - Maybe it`s coincidence , Maybe Vince got inspired.

  16. Stas Rybakowski

    This is a very sad and a very adult song with an explicit kindergarten tune.
    A true masterpiece!

  17. Ernesto Lombardo

    This is one hell of an album, the whole damn thing is one bold, historic statement. And it's aged just beautifully.

  18. Craig Sells

    Wow memories ❤

  19. Tony Edwards

    Synth Masterpiece!

  20. Jenova Baggins

    Elongated Muskrat

    I'm 12 too, but we're not special

  30. JAMIE LESTER

    I could have this song on repeat for the rest of my life and I would never ever get bored of it ever.
    Alison Moyet and Yazoo were pure raw talent and Vince is a genius.

  31. Nichola Conway

  32. Andy Williams

    I just can't get enough...of this song.

    J Horton

    Ha - I hear it too.

    Jezwrd

    Vince was in Depeche Mode wasn't he? or have I imagines that?

    J Horton

    @Jezwrd , you are correct. He was a founding member of DM, but left after the first album.

    Andrew Kowalski

    @Jezwrd he also was part of Erasure

    Andrea Vajas

    metooooooooooooooo

  33. GreasyFilms2016

    Unlike so much modern music, it's minimally produced. Mostly Alf is single tracked, but her voice is so fantastic it works. And most of Vince's synths are under 10 tracks.

    James Propmaker

    GreasyFilms2016 Do you no what he use was it s Yamaha DX7

    ReaktorLeak

    The DX7 wasn't available in 1982, but I understand Vince mostly used the Sequential Pro One and Roland Jupiter-4. The drum machine was a Roland TR-808.

  34. Mike Manning

    This whole album fucking owns. Yaz wreckin' shit, y'all.

  35. Ten Fix

    Bad Connection / Situation

  36. cheese wheel
