Lyrics:
operator, give me information
information, give me long distance
long distance, give me heaven

2-3 oh operator, information,
well give me jesus on the line
woah woah operator, information,
i'd like to speak to a friend of mine
prayer is my number and faith is the exchange,
heaven is the street and jesus is his name
oh operator, information, please give me jesus on the line

woah woah operator, information,
tell me why it's taking so long
operator, information,
don't try to tell me what number to call
my mother used this number when i was very small
and every time she dialed it she always got a call
oh, operator, information, please give me jesus on the line

(instrumental bridge)
operator, information,
please help me if you can
operator, information,
please connect me with the man
don't worry about the money, i will pay the charge,
just give me a private line, i'm calling from the heart
operator, information, please give me jesus, on the line
please give me jesus on the line
please give me jesus on the line.... yeah!
