Call Me by Blondie

Artist: Blondie

Blondie is a rock band founded by vocalist Debbie Harry and guitarist Chris Stein and were pioneers of the American punk scene and the following new wave scene of the mid-1970s in New York. Their first two albums reflected strong elements of the genres, and were highly successful in the UK and Australia, however in the US they were an underground band until the release of Parallel Lines in 1978. Blondie disbanded in 1982 with Harry pursuing a solo career as well as taking time off to care for her partner, Stein, when he was diagnosed with pemphigus. The band reformed in 1997 achieving a UK number one with the single Maria in 1999, exactly twenty years after their first UK number one Heart of Glass

Lyrics by Chris Stein and Giorgio Moroder

Colour me your colour, baby
Colour me your car
Colour me your colour, darling
I know who you are
Come up off your colour chart
I know where you are coming 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 my love
When you're ready we can share the wine
Call me
Ooo-oo-oo-oo-oo, he speaks the languages of love
Ooo-oo-oo-oo-oo, amore, chiamami, chiamami
Ooo-oo-oo-oo-oo, 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 alibi
Call me (call me) on the line
Call me, call me any, anytime
Call me (call me)
Oh, call me, oo-hoo-hah
Call me (call me) my love
Call me, call me any, anytime
