Danish
Kigger på mit ur, nu’ du ganske sikkert hjemme
Så jeg drøner ned ad trappen for at ringe til dig
Men ned’ i boksen står der én med mønter fremme
Han ta’r flere op af lommen, mens han skuler til mig

Så er der fri, jeg ringer op og den er klar
Men det er kun din automat, der gi’r mig svar

Jeg si’r: Hallo, hallo, jeg ved godt, du er hjemme
Ka’ du ikke ta’ og ta’ din telefon?
Hallo, hallo, jeg lytter til din stemme
Men når båndet slutter, er der aldrig no’en

Rådhusuret slår, og her står jeg nu og fryser
Jeg er træt af smarte fyre, der skal imponere
Jeg’ godt forkølet, pudser næse, går og nyser
Og ka’ næsten ikke styre temperamentet mere

Jeg griber røret, men bli’r stadig holdt for nar
For det’ din dumme automat, der gi’r mig svar

Jeg si’r: Hallo, hallo, jeg ved godt, du er hjemme
Ka’ du ikke ta’ og ta’ din telefon?
Hallo, hallo, jeg lytter til din stemme
Men når båndet slutter, er der aldrig no’en

Jeg fodrer boksen med den sidste mønt jeg har
Det er og bli’r din automat, der gi’r mig svar

Jeg si’r: Hallo, hallo, jeg ved godt, du er hjemme
Ka’ du ikke ta’ og ta’ din telefon?
Hallo, hallo, jeg lytter til din stemme
Men når båndet slutter, er der aldrig no’en

Jeg si’r: Hallo, hallo, jeg vidste du var hjemme
Det var rart, at du ku’ ta’ din telefon
Hallo, hallo, jeg lytter til din stemme
Selv om båndet slutter, er der stadig no’en
Det var rart, at du ku’ ta’ din telefon

Translation
I look at my watch, I’m sure you’re home by now
So I run down the stairs to call you
But in the phone box a guy is standing with coins in his hand
He takes more out of his pocket, as he scowls at me

Then it’s free, I dial the number and get the connection
But it’s only your answering machine that answers

I say: Hello, hello, I know you’re home
Couldn’t you answer your phone?
Hello, hello, I listen to your voice
But when the tape runs out, nobody’s ever there

The bells of the town hall are ringing and here I stand freezing
I’m tired of smart guys who just want to impress
I’ve got a cold, I blow my nose, walk around sneezing
And can hardly control my temper anymore

I take the receiver, but I’m still being made a fool of
For it’s your stupid machine that answers

I say: Hello, hello, I know you’re home
Couldn’t you answer your phone?
Hello, hello, I listen to your voice
But when the tape runs out, nobody’s ever there

I feed the phone with the last coin I’ve got
Your machine remains the only to answer

I say: Hello, hello, I know you’re home
Couldn’t you answer your phone?
Hello, hello, I listen to your voice
But when the tape runs out, nobody’s ever there

I say: Hello, hello, I knew you were home
It was nice that you could answer your phone
Hello, hello, I listen to your voice
Even if the tape runs out, there’s still someone there
It was nice that you could answer your phone
