(Stop) Oh yes, wait a minute Mister Postman
(Wait) Wait Mister Postman
Please Mister Postman, look and see (Oh yeah)
If there’s a letter in your bag for me (Please, Please Mister Postman)
Why’s it takin’ such a long time (Oh yeah)
For me to hear from that boy of mine
There must be some word today
From my boyfriend so far away
Pleas Mister Postman, look and see
If there’s a letter, a letter for me
I’ve been standin’ here waitin’ Mister Postman
So patiently For just a card, or just a letter
Sayin’ he’s returnin’ home to me
(Mister Postman) Mister Postman, look and see (Oh yeah)
If there’s a letter in your bag for me (Please, Please Mister Postman)
Why’s it takin’ such a long time (Oh yeah)
For me to hear from that boy of mine
So many days you passed me by
See the tears standin’ in my eyes
You didn’t stop to make me feel better
By leavin’ me a card or a letter
(Mister Postman) Mister Postman, look and see
(Oh yeah) If there’s a letter in your bag for me (Please, Please Mister Postman)
Why’s it takin’ such a long time
(Why don’t you check it and see one more time for me, you gotta)
Wait a minute Wait a minute Wait a minute Wait a minute (Mister Postman)
Mister Postman, look and see
(C’mon deliver the letter, the sooner the better) Mister Postman
