    Default Well-known Pop song "Your Nobody Called Today" -about possible infidelity (1970's???)

    Trying to identify the Artist and Song Title for the below.

    The main lyrics that were repeated over and over again in the chorus were:

    "YOUR NOBODY CALLED TODAY, SHE HUNG UP WHEN I ASKED HER NAME"
    (sung like "Your Nooo-body called today, she hung up, when I asked her name")

    It may also have been followed by something like "DOES SHE THINK SHE'S CLEVER"


    It's been about two years now since I last heard it on the radio, and while I still have the melody in my head - too bad you can't hear it ... well on second thought, you wouldn't want to hear me sing, trust me - the rest of the lyrics have faded from my memory.



    Other information:
    * I believe this was a fairly popular song (top 40)

    * Female Vocal

    * A story telling ballad

    * Easy going vocal singing style (no vocal gymnastics, screaming, falsettos, etc.) with the singer more up front in the mix

    * Guessing it was from the 1970's era

    * Likely played originally on Top 40/Easy Listening/AM Radio format stations

    * The implied topic of the song I believe was about a women who was suspicious that her husband/boyfriend was having an affair, because she kept getting telephone calls at home, that when she answered, a female voice was on the line that wouldn't identify herself and would then hang up. Each time this would happen, the next time the women saw her husband/boyfriend, she would say "Your nobody called today, she hung up when I asked her name"...


    I know I haven't given much to go on lyrically, but because of it being a pretty big hit, I'm hoping someone will remember it.

    "Nobody" by Sylvia / Is this it?


    Sittin' in a restaurant
    She walked by
    I seemed to recall
    That certain look in your eye
    I said, who's that
    You said, with a smile
    Aah, it's nobody
    Aah, nobody

    Maybe that explains the last two week
    You called me up, dead on your feet
    Working late again
    I asked who with
    You said, nobody
    Aah, nobody

    Well your nobody called today
    She hung up when I asked her name
    Well, I wonder
    Does she think she's being clever
    (Clever, ooh, ooh)
    You say, nobody's after you
    The fact is what you say is true
    But I can love you like nobody can
    Even better

    Late last night we went for a drive
    You were miles away
    I asked, who's on your mind
    You said, nobody (nobody)
    Why do you ask
    Oh, her again
    I could've told you that

    We came back home
    Got ready for bed
    I said to myself
    I've got one shot left
    Your still mine and I won't stand in line
    Behind nobody
    Nobody

    Well, your nobody called today
    She hung up when I asked her name
    Well, I wonder does she think she's being clever
    (Clever, ohh, ohh)
    You say nobody's after you
    The fact is what you say is true
    But I can love you like nobody can
    Even better

    Well, your nobody called today
    She hung up when I asked her name
    Well, I wonder does she think she's being clever
    (Clever, ohh, ohh)
    You say nobody's after you
    The fact is what you say is true
    But I can love you like nobody can
    Even better...

    Logan01 & Mumbles:

    Thank You, "Nobody" by Sylvia was the one I was looking for.

    I knew this was a "Song Identify 101" level question because it was such a big hit, but I just could not figure it out.

    Thanks again

    No problem; glad to get you your song. Now if you could help me remove Mumbles from my browser, in a gentle and thoughtful manner of course, everything will be "hunky-dory".
