Just Checking

Didn't really want to talk don't have much to say We haven't talked in a while a little longer wouldn't matter anyway Don't keep me on the phone too long you know I don't like commentation Let's just say hi, say bye I didn't call to have a long conversation Or to hear how your distant cousins are doing How your day went If you cashed your check and how much money you spent Just calling to see 'cause I care enough; show enough concern to pick up the phone and say "Just checking to see if you're breathing."
