Sides face, grand square
Operator, operator would you be so kind
As to reconnect this number, I just spent my last dime

Allemande left and weave the ring
She got my love on hold and my heart is on the line
Swing and promenade
She got my love on hold, my heart is on the line


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway you go
Walk in and square thru 4 hands you go
Go all the way and do the right & left thru
You veer to the left and ferris wheel
Come square thru 3 hands, roll it and go
You swing that girl you promenade her and go
She didn't hear a word, she just hung up the phone


TAG

She got my love on hold, and my heart is on the line

Heart On The Line (Operator, Operator)  (1983)

Now I thought it over how it's come to this
I must have lost all my common sense
I been chasing a dream running through my mind
So I called her up to say how I felt
Just before I could get it out
She was gone silence was on
She didn't hear a word she just hung up the phone

Operator, operator could you be so kind
As to reconnect this number I just spent my last dime
She's got my love on hold and my heart is on the line

Well I was always just one step ahead
Just close enough to keep my fingers wet
I've been acting a fool and fooling no one but myself

But now I'm ready to talk if you're willing to hear
The choice of words is my biggest fear
I would say anything (yes I would) just to change your mind
You've got my love on hold and my heart is on the line

Operator, operator could you be so kind
As to reconnect this number I just spent my last dime
She's got my love on hold and my heart is on the line

(Hey now look here mama, wait a minute)
Operator, operator (Aw you can't do that to me)
Could you be so kind (What do you mean' Wait! I ain't got no more money!)
As to reconnect this number (Hold on, operator)
I just spent my last dime (Operator, uh, uh)
She's got my love on hold and my heart is on the line

Lyrics by Larry Willoughby and Janet Willoughby.
Recorded by The Oak Ridge Boys; Eddy Raven.
