"Please Mr. Postman" as written by and William/dobbins Garrett....
(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,)
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,)
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,)
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

    General CommentHaha, when I was eight I did this song with a friend at the talent show. Brings back some great memories.

    You miss your boy and your hoping for a letter from him. I've waited by the letter box before. :p

    General CommentActually... this is originally a Marvelettes tune. Beatles recorded a nice version, but I'd have to say that the original, and Carpenters version (both of which hit #1 on the charts) completely overshadow the Beatles on this one.

    General CommentPersonally I think this song is about a Girlfriend or wife waiting for a letter from a Boyfriend or Husband who's away at war abroad. it makes sense to me

    General CommentA Beatles cover. Haha.

    I love singing this song, although it's kind of shallow for me. :):)

    General CommentWow, really? No, about the shallow thing that I've said, what I mean is that if you'll compare it with 'Across The Universe' (of The Beatles) it would be overshadowed.

    Oh well, do you still wait for the postman? I just wait for e-mails actually.

    I never caught a postman posting letters in my house. If I did, I'd sing this song to him.
