"Return To Sender" as written by Fitzgerald Scott and Lemar Obika....
Return to sender, return to sender

I gave a letter to the postman, he put it his sack
Bright in early next morning, he brought my letter back

She wrote upon it
Return to sender, address unknown
No such number, no such zone

We had a quarrel, a lover's spat
I write I'm sorry but my letter keeps coming back

So then I dropped it in the mailbox and sent it special D
Bright in early next morning it came right back to me

She wrote upon it
Return to sender, address unknown
No such person, no such zone

This time I'm gonna take it myself and put it right in her hand
And if it comes back the very next day then I'll understand

The writing on it
Return to sender, address unknown
No such number, no such zone

Return to sender, return to sender
Return to sender, return to sender

    General CommentThese lyrics are ridiculous.

    If he gave a letter to the postman one day, there's no way he would have got it back bright and early the next morning.

    Liar.

    General CommentHe is trying to show interest or mayby put things right with a girl he likes romantically, so he write her a letter. She keeps refusing to read it, just returns it to sender, and so he keeps on sending it. Even when he deliver it personally, she just gives him a cold shoulder, and returns it wo a second glance. It's obviously out of the question for her, she's just not interested. Though luck for the King
