INTRO

Wait!!! Oh Yeah! Wait a minute Mr. Postman
Wait!!! Waaaait


OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Oh Mr. Postman, look and see
If there's a letter in your bag for me
I've been waiting for such a long time

Allemande left and weave the ring
There must be some word today
*Swing your girl, promenade that way (*from my girlfriend so far away)

Please Mr. Postman, look and see
If there's a letter, a letter for me


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands you go, the corner girl a dosado
Swing thru, the boys run right
Tag the line, cloverleaf tonight
Girls square thru 3/4 round
Your corner swing, promenade that town
Please Mr. Postman, look and see
If there's a letter, a letter for me


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
I've been standing, a-waitin' Mr. Postman,
So..oo..o patiently
For just a card, or just a letter

Allemande left and weave the ring
You'd better, wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute
*Swing your girl, promenade that way (*wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute)

You gotta wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute
Check it and see, one more time for me


TAG

Swing, Mr. Postman

ALTERNATE LYRICS

Sides face, grand square
So many days, you pass me by
You see the tears standing in my eye
You didn't stop to make me feel better

Allemande left and weave the ring
You'd better, wait a minute, wait a minute
*Swing your girl, promenade that way (*wait a minute, wait a minute)

You gotta wait a minute, wait a minute
Check it and see, one more time for me

Please Mr. Postman
 
 

(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)

Lyrics by Georgia Dobbins, Robert Bateman, Brian Holland, Freddie Gorman and William Garrett.
