lyrics

Mailman, mailman, tell me what's taking you so long,
Mailman, mailman, what in the world is taking you so long,
I got a letter comin' from my baby way down in San Anton'

It's been a long, long time since I've seen my baby's face
It's been a long, long time since I've seen my baby's face
If I don't hear from her pretty soon, I might as well get somebody else!

Well, I met her down in Shreveport
Just in November last year
She's been writing the sweetest words
That a man could ever hear
Mailman, mailman, tell me what's taking you so long,
Yes, I got a woman in Shreveport,
She might be down in San Anton'

Solo

Well, I met her down in Shreveport
Just in November last year
She's been writing the sweetest words
That a man could ever hear
Mailman, mailman, you better get on your merry way!
If I don't get my letter right today
You'll never see another day!
