    I always heard it as "homing in to wake her"....which fits both the theme of the song and the metre, too.

    calling tryin' to wake her up

    Always thought it was "calling trying to waken her"

    It was always "Calling Jamaica" for me too! I'll never be able to sign along now!

    "The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite"

    This here is the place I will be staying.
    There isn't a number. You can call the pay phone.
    Let it ring a long, long, long, long time.
    If I don't pick up, hang up, call back, let it ring some more.
    If I don't pick up, pick up... The sidewinder sleeps, sleeps, sleeps in a coil

    Call me when you try to wake her up. Call me when you try to wake her.
    Call me when you try to wake her up. Call me when you try to wake her.
    Call me when you try to wake her up. Call me when you try to wake her.

    There are scratches all around the coin slot
    Like a heartbeat, baby trying to wake up,
    But this machine can only swallow money.
    You can't lay a patch by computer design.
    It's just a lot of stupid, stupid signs.

    Tell her,
    Tell her she can kiss my ass, then laugh and say that you were only kidding.
    That way she'll know that it's really, really, really, really me.

    Call me when you try to wake her up. Call me when you try to wake her.
    Call me when you try to wake her up. Call me when you try to wake her.
    Call me when you try to wake her up. Call me when you try to wake her.

    Baby, instant soup doesn't really grab me.
    Today I need something more sub-sub-sub-substantial.
    A can of beans or blackeyed peas, some Nescafe and ice,
    A candy bar, a falling star, or a reading of Doctor Seuss;

    Call me when you try to wake her up. Call me when you try to wake her.
    Call me when you try to wake her up. Call me when you try to wake her.
    Call me when you try to wake her up. Call me when you try to wake her.

    The cat in the hat came back, wrecked a lot of havoc on the way,
    Always had a smile and a reason to pretend.
    But their world has flat backgrounds and little need to sleep but to dream.
    The sidewinder sleeps on his back.

    Call me when you try to wake her up. Call me when you try to wake her.
    Call me when you try to wake her up. Call me when you try to wake her.
    I can always sleep standing up. Call me when you try to wake her.
    Call me when you try to wake her up. Call me when you try to wake her.
    Call me when you try to wake her up. Call me when you try to wake her.
    I can always sleep standing up. Call me when you try to wake her.
    Call me when you try to wake her up. Call me when you try to wake her.
    I can always sleep standing up. Call me when you try to wake her.
    I can always sleep standing up. Call me when you try to wake her.
