Lyrics

FZ (spoken): This is a song from our Freak Out album, which has been changed to a waltz for live performance. The name of this song is 'You Didn't Try To Call Me'. After we play through 'You Didn't Try To Call Me', there'll be a brief pause and I will say: 'Let's roll along now,' that means nothing to you, into a piece of 'Petroushka' by Igor Stravinsky, followed by the 'Bristol Stomp' followed by 'Baby Love' by the Supremes, followed by our new smash flop single 'There's A Big Dilemma About My Big Leg Emma'

One two three
One two three

You didn't try to call me
Why didn't you try
I'm so lonely
No matter who I take home
I keep calling your name
And you (I need you so bad)
You're the one babe

Tell me, tell me who's lovin' you now
Cause it worries my mind and I can't sleep at all
Stayed home all Friday just to wait for your call
You didn't try
You didn't try
You didn't try
You didn't try to call me
Why didn't you try
I'm so lonely
No matter who I take home
I keep calling your name
And you . . . I need you so bad
You're the one babe

Tell me, tell me who's lovin' you now
Cause it worries my mind and I can't sleep at all
Stayed home all Friday just to wait for your call
You didn't try
You didn't try
You didn't try
You didn't try to call me
Why didn't you try
I'm so lonely
No matter who I take home
I keep calling your name
And you . . . I need you so bad
You're the one babe

Tell me, tell me who's lovin' you now
Cause it worries my mind and I can't sleep at all
Stayed home on Friday just to wait for your call

I can't say what's right or what's wrong
But I love you
All you got to do is call me babe
I want you
You make me feel so excited girl
I got so hung up on you
From the moment that we met
That no matter how I try
I can't keep the tears
From running down my face
I'm all alone in my place

Well, Let's roll along now

Petroushka!
