(Wait) Oh yes, wait a minute, Mr. Postman
(Wait) Wait, Mr. Postman

(Please, Mr. Postman, look and see) Whoa yeah
(Is there a letter in your bag for me?) Please, please, Mr. Postman
('Cause it's been a mighty long time) Whoa yeah
(Since I heard from this boyfriend of mine)

There must be some word today
From my boyfriend so far away
Please, Mr. Postman, look and see
Is there a letter, a letter for me?

I've been standin' here waitin', Mr. Postman,
So so patiently
For just a card or just a letter
Sayin' he's returnin' home to me

Please, Mr. Postman
(Please, Mr. Postman, look and see) Whoa yeah
(Is there a letter in your bag for me?) Please, please, Mr. Postman
('Cause it's been a mighty long time) Whoa yeah
(Since I heard from this boyfriend of mine)

So many days, you've passed me by
You saw the tears standin' in my eyes
You wouldn't stop to make me feel better
By leavin' me a card or a letter

Please, Mr. Postman, look and see
Is there a letter, oh yeah, in your bag for me?
You know it's been so long
Yeah, since I heard from the boyfriend of mine

You gotta wait a minute, wait a minute
(Wait a minute, Mr. Postman)
Oh, you better wait a minute
Please, please, Mr. Postman
(Wait a minute, Mr. Postman)
Please check and see
Just one more time for me

You gotta wait (wait), wait a minute
(Wait a minute, Mr. Postman)
Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute
Please, Mr. Postman
(Wait a minute, Mr. Postman)
Deliver the letter
The sooner, the better

Wait a minute, wait a minute
(Wait a minute, Mr. Postman)
Wait a minute, please, Mr. Postman, wait
Wait a minute, wait a minute
Uh-huh
(fade out)
