Dear Sirs,
To whom this may concern
There's facts I'd like to learn
So many things I wanna know
Especially trivial info
Paraphenalia, badges and regalia
Please send me everything

Cause I
Am interested in you
And everything you do
I find myself at all your shows
Could you tell me where you buy your clothes?
Could you sign my little sister's face?
Put your signature any place
And please send me a bio

Cause we've got fan mail (We really, really read it)
Fan mail (We really, really read it)

I sent you my letter, now I want a reply
You don't know any better if you won't take your time
With my fan mail

So I would like to know just if and when
You'll be in town again
So that I could meet with you
And brag at my friends at school
Have you been all around the world?
Have you seen every kind of girl?
Or are you from the other side?

Cause you
You can't believe everything that you read
With the hypocrisy and the greed
The papers all the things that they say
They don't tell me anything anyway
That's why I've gotta get it straight from you
Concerning your situation
Without an obligation

Cause we've got fan mail (We really, really read it)
Fan mail (We really, really read it)

I sent you my letter, now I want a reply
You don't know any better if you won't take your time
With my fan mail

My fan mail

Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa

What's this I find to my surprise
Those fans that I idolized
No longer seem to exist
Now tell me what could be the cause of this
Perhaps it could be their egos
I tell you heaven only knows
I didn't even get a newsletter

Cause we've got fan mail (We really, really read it)
Fan mail (We really, really read it)

I sent you my letter, now I want a reply
You don't know any better if you won't take your time
With my fan mail (We really, really read it)
Fan mail (We really, really read it)

I sent you my letter, now I want a reply
You don't know any better if you won't take your time
With my fan mail (Send it out to me)

Fan mail (Special delivery)
Fan mail

    General Commentthis song is a cover, originally by the Dickies. This version is way better than the original recording by the Dickies though....not to say that the original is bad because it is not

    General CommentI was so glad to see they covered this song, Its my favorite Dickies song. Hey Eric, Did you ever hear the Live version the Dickies do on their live album
    "Still Got Live, Even If You Don't Want It" ?

    Its much better than the original.

    This song is obviously about appreciating the fans because without them a band is nothing

    What's this I find to my surprise
    Those "bands" that I idolized
