Why Don't You Write Me

ŠPaul Simon, released on Bridge Over Troubled Water (Simon and Garfunkel) 1970

.

Why don't you write me

I'm out in the jungle

I'm hungry to hear you.

Send me a card,

I am waiting so hard

To be near you.

(La, la, la)

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 me,

A letter would brighten

My loneliest evening.

Mail it today

If it's only to say

That you're leaving me.

(La, la, la)

.

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

Gonna hang my body from the highest tree.

Why don't you write me?
