Please Mr. Postman


Jim Adams’ challenge this week is to write about a song with the theme or words Hold/Pause/Stop/Wait.

Please Mr. Postman was written by Georgia Dobbins, William Garrett, Freddie Gorman, Brian Holland and Robert Bateman, and was first performed by the Marvelettes in 1961 reaching number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The Beatles released a cover in 1963, and the Carpenters covered it in 1975 reaching number 1.

Lyrics:

Oh yeah
(Is there a letter in your bag for me) Please, Please Mister Postman
(Why’s it been a very long time) Oh yeah
(Since I heard from this boyfriend of mine)There must be some word today
From my boyfriend so far away
Please Mister Postman, look and see
Is there a letter, a letter for meI’ve been standin’ here waitin’ Mister Postman
So patiently, for just a card, or just a letter
Sayin’ he’s returnin’ home to mePlease Mister Postman (Mister Postman, look and see) Oh yeah
(Is there a letter in your bag for me?) Please Please Mister Postman
(Why’s it been a very long time) Oh yeah
(Since I heard from this boyfriend of mine)So many days you passed me by
You saw the tears standin’ in my eye
You wouldn’t stop to make me feel better
By leavin’ me a card or a letterPlease Mister Postman look and see (Postman postman)
Is there a letter oh yeah in your bag for me? (Postman postman)
You know its been so long (Postman postman)
Yes since I heard from this boyfriend of mine (Postman postman)You better wait a minute, wait a minute
Oh you better wait a minute
Please please Mister Postman (Wait a minute Mister Postman)
Please check and see just one more time for me
You better wait, wait a minute
Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute
Please Mister Postman
Deliver de letter the sooner de better
Wait a minute, wait a minute
Wait a minute, please Mister Postman
Wait a minute, wait a minute oh oh

  1. Oh yeah
    Is there a letter from your bag for me
    Since I have heard from the voice inside
    That you have no longer have to hide
    Or commit suicide Oh yeah
    But life is the sword of Damocles
    Taking me to meet the maker..
