INTRO

Stop! Oh yes, wait a minute Mr. Postman
Wait! Wai-aa-aa-ate...


OPENER    Basic

Circle left
Mr. Postman, look and see
If there's a letter in your bag for me

Left allemande, turn the partner by the right
Left allemande gonna weave tonight
There must be some word today, from my boyfriend so far away
Please Mr. Postman, look and see, if there's a letter, a letter for me


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade, take it half you go
Down the middle, square thru and go four
Go all the way touch a 1/4, my friend
Scoot back, boy run again
Pass the ocean, all 8 circulate
Swing the corner, promenade your date
*Please Mr. Postman, look and see, if there's a letter, a letter for me


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*You didn't stop to make me feel better, by leavin' me, a card or a letter

MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
(no lyric, guitar solo, musical interlude)
Allemande left and weave the ring
I've been standing here waitin' Mr. Postman, so-o-o patiently
For just a card, or just a letter, saying he's returning home to me


CLOSER    Mainstream

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

Allemande left and weave the ring
You've gotta wait a minute, wait a minute
Wait a minute, wait a minute (ooo-ooo)
Wait a minute, wait a minute
Come on deliver the letter, the sooner the better


TAG

Mr. Postman (ooo-ooo-ooo)

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)
