Verse 1
No New Year's Day to celebrate
No chocolate covered candy hearts to give away
No first of spring, no song to sing
In fact here's just another ordinary day
 

Repeat Riff C
Verse  2                                              
No April rain, no flowers bloom;
No wedding Saturday within the month of June
But what it is, is something true
Made up of these three words that I must say to you
 

Riff D

Chorus

I just called     to say       I love you

Verse  3                                              
No Libra sun, no Halloween
No giving thanks to all the Christmas joy you bring
But what it is, though old so new
To fill your heart like no three words could ever do
 
 

Riff D

Chorus

I just called to say I love you
I just called to say how much I care
Ugh, ugh, ugh
I just called to say I love you
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart
