"Some Postman" as written by David Michael Dederer and Christopher Weldon / Ballew....
It's 6 AM and the sun is getting high
He picks up the mail from the slot
He feels the rush of excitement as he holds it in his hand
Another love note no one got

Some postman is grooving to all our love letters
Some postman is gonna cry
Some postman is grooving to all our love letters
Some postman is gonna cry
Gonna cry
Gonna cry

It's noon now and all the mailboxes have been emptied
And all the letters are inside
He counts them, he checks them, he looks for clues and finds
The ones with hearts on the outside

Some postman is grooving to all our love letters
Some postman is gonna cry
Some postman is grooving to all out love letters
Some postman is gonna cry
Gonna cry
Gonna cry
Gonna cry yeah yeah

Nineteen ninety three
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

Holding onto a package meant for a distant lover
Thought it would be there overnight
She waits and she cries and she thinks he does not love her
The postman holds on oh so tight

Some postman is grooving to all our love letters
Some postman is gonna cry
Some postman is grooving to all our love letters
Some postman is gonna cry
Gonna cry yeah

You (you)
Crushed (crushed)
Paper hearts
Stole (stole)
And sold (sold)
And ripped apart
Your promise was sent but you never delivered to me
Some postman you turned out to be

    General CommentPUSA is not exactly a deep band, their songs are 95% whimsy and I don't think this is any exception

    General CommentI like how the entire time he's singing this song, I don't know if he's blaming the postman for him not recieving any letters.. or he's making excuses to his girl for why she doesn't get any of the letters he prolly never sent her.. like he's blaming the postman because she doesn't get any letters he nevcer actually sends..

    General CommentI have to say that since I've heard this song, I can never think about the postal service the same. Now whenever I send a letter and it doesn't get delivered, I think of this song and get creeped out.

    General CommentI love how the the title gets a double meaning on the very last line. It makes me laugh every time.

    General CommentI see such an inside meaning to this song. I think that its all about how all of us should have love letters from the person who loves us but we hide are feelings so it never happends bacuase realisticly we never really get love letters sent in the mail.

    General CommentThis is like my favorite song! My cuz played it once in his car, and my sister and i both had it stuck in our heads for almost an entire month before we could find it! i guess my cuz has pretty good taste in music! i think the song is either about blaiming the postman because he isnt getting love letters, or to make an excuse for not sending one, but either way, this song rocks!
