Operator

  • (Trad / de Dannan)

    Operator, information, give me Jesus on the line
    Operator, information, I'd like to speak to a friend of mine
    Prayer is the number, faith is the exchange
    Heaven is the street and Jesus is the name
    Operator, information, give me Jesus on the line

    Repeat

    Operator, information, help me if you can
    Operator, information, connect me with the man
    Though I'm without the money, I'll pay the charge
    Connect me with the man, I've called him to my heart
    Operator, information, give me Jesus on the line

    Operator, information, please tell me why
    Operator, information, I have to try
    My mother knew his number when I was very small
    Every time she dialled he answered the call
    Operator, information, give me Jesus on the line

    Repeat 1

    (as sung by De Dannan)

Susannes Folksong-Notizen

  • [1992:] [...] the gospel classic 'Operator' is nothing short of stunning. (Sean McGhee, review De Dannan, '1/2 Set In Harlem', Rock 'n' Reel 13, p 39)
