Answering Machine Lyrics - The Replacements

Review The Song (1)



1, 2, 3, 4

Try to breathe some life into a letter
Losing hope, never gonna be together
My courage is at it's peak
You know what I mean
How do say you're O.K. to
An answering machine?
How do you say good night to
An answering machine?

Big time's got its losers
Small town's got its vices
A handful of friends
One needs a match, one needs some ice
Call-waiting phone in another time zone
How do you say I miss you to
An answering machine?

How do say good night to
An answering machine?

I get enough of that

Try to free a slave with ignorance
Try and teach a whore about romance

How do you say I miss you to
An answering machine?
How do you say good night to
An answering machine?
How do you say I'm lonely to
An answering machine?
The message is very plain
Oh, I hate your answering machine
I hate your answering machine
I hate your answering machine...

Answering Machine | Reviewer: Gogunn | 6/8/2008

Made me cry. I am the sensitive type. Remember answering machines? They had tapes in them. if you saved the tapes, they make for some hilarious listening years later. If Westerberg left any messages on your answering machine, I'd pay to give them a listen. In the meantime I'll listen to the two versions on the 2008 re-issue. The playing is Replacements amateurish, but what the hell, the song is great. It's perfect the way it is, played by a lonely guy and his guitar and maybe a bottle. Could've been a hit if Prince recorded it.
