Lyrics for Call Me by Blondie:

Intro

Verse 1
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

Chorus 1
Call me (call me) on the line
Call me, call me any, anytime
Call me (call me) I'll arrive
You can call me any day or night
Call me

Verse 2
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

Chorus 2
Call me (call me) on the line
Call me, call me any, anytime
Call me (call me) I'll arrive
When you are ready we can share the wine
Call me

​​Bridge​​
Oooh, he speaks the languages of love
Oooh, amore, chiamami, chiamami
Oooh, appelle-moi mon cheri, appelle-moi
Anytime, anyplace, anywhere, any way
Anytime, anyplace, anywhere, any day, any way

Instrumental ​​Bridge​​

Verse 3
Take me out and show me off
And put me on the scene
Dress me in the fashions
Of the 1980's
You're a man, no in-between
You know what your words can mean

Chorus 3
Call me (call me) on the line
Call me, call me any day or night
Call me (call me) I'll arrive
Call me, call me into overtime
Call me

Instrumental ​​Bridge

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 lover's alibi
Call me (call me) on the line
Call me, call me any, anytime

Breakdown
Call me, ah-ha, call me, ah-ha-ha
Call me, ah-ha-ha, call me any day or night
Call me, ooh-ooh-ah-ha-ha, ooh-ooh-ha-ha-ha

Call me for a ride, call me inside
Call me, all night, all day, ah-ha

Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ah-ah-ah

Call me in my life
Call me, call me any, any time
Call me, I'll arrive
Call me, call me for some overtime
Call me in my life

Call me, call me any, any time
Ooh-ooh-ooh
Call me, oh-oh, call me
Call me in my life
Call me, call me any, any time

Song Facts

Blondie’s biggest hit, “Call Me”, was also the biggest song of 1980 in the US, spending six weeks at the top of the chart. It also topped the UK pop chart and reached the top 20 in eight more countries overseas.

The original 8 minute long version produced and co-written by European Giorgio Moroder (aka “The Italian Disco King”) was trimmed to 3 minutes and 33 seconds for the radio edit, whilst the video mix was a mere 2 minutes 15 seconds.

The song was written for the soundtrack of the film American Gigolo. The song’s music had been initially offered to Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks, but due to contractual conflicts she had to decline.

Two of the better filmed versions of the song are the performance of Debbie Harry as a guest on The Muppet Show and the performance with Shirley Manson of Garbage.

The song was also recorded in Spanish, called “Llámame” and released simultaneously with the English version.
