Why don’t you write me? I’m out in the jungle I’m hungry to hear you Send me a card I’m waiting so hard To be near you Why don’t you write? Something is wrong And I know I got to be there Maybe I’m lost But I can’t make the cost Of the airfare Tell me why, why, why Tell me why, why, why Why don’t you write m? A letter would brighten My loneliest evening Mail it today If it’s only to say That you’re leaving me Monday morning, sitting in the sun Hoping and wishing for the mail to come Tuesday, never got a word Wednesday, Thursday ain’t no sign Drank a half a bottle of iodine Friday, woe is me I’m gonna hang my body from the highest tree Why don’t you write me? Why don’t you write me?
