Please Mr. Postman - Carpenters

Intro

Stop! Oh yes, wait a minute Mister Postman. 

Wait, wait Mister Postman  

Please Mister Postman look and see 

if there's a letter in your bag for me.

Why's it taking such a long time,

for me to hear from that boy of mine.

 

1. Strophe

There must be some word today 

from my girlfriend so far away. 

Please Mister Postman look and see, 

if there's a letter, a letter for me.

I been standing here waiting Mister Postman,

so patiently, for just a card or just a letter, 

saying he's returning home to me. 

 

2. Refrain

Mister Postman look and see 

if there's a letter in your bag for me.

Why's it taking such a long time,

for me to hear from that boy of mine.

 

Instrumental  

 

2. Strophe

So many days you passed me by,

see the tears standing in my eyes.

You didn't stop to make me feel better,

by leaving me a card or a letter.

 

3. Refrain

Mister Postman look and see 

if there's a letter in your bag for me.

Why's it taking such a long time,

why don't you check it and see one more time for me.

 

Bridge:

You gotta wait a minute, wait a minute,

wait a minute, wait a minute, ooh Mister Postman.

C'mon deliver the letter, the sooner the better.

Mister Postman, aah-aah!

 

Instrumental 

(Aah aah, mmh mmh, aah aah..!)
