Verse 1:
D     F#7       G    Gm
 Operators are standing by
D          G             D      G
 Smoking cigarettes and drinking coffee
D            F#7          G          Gm
 Bounce their shoes at the end of their feet
      D        A       G
 And wish they could go home 

Chorus:
C   D          G          Bm
 Operators are standing by
C       D            G        Bm
 Poking holes in the ceiling tiles
C        D          G           Bm
 Making jokes about their old boyfriends and
C   G/B       A7
    Days gone by

Verse 2:
Operators are standing by
Talking about their portrayal
On the TV where an actress sits
With a headset in outer space

Bridge:
 A                      G D
That's enough talking, ladies.

Verse 3:
Operators are standing by
Smoking cigarettes and drinking coffee
Pass 'round a picture of a mobius strip            
And wish they could go home

end on D
