ONE SWEET LETTER FROM YOU

I’m so blue, lonesome, too
And I wonder where you are tonight
Not one word have I heard
If you think of me, why don’t you write?

Oh, dear, how I need one sweet letter from you
How I’d love to read one sweet letter from you
You know that you left me so worried and blue
I always keep singing, oh, what’ll I do
Though it’s not fair, and you don’t care for me dearly
Drop me a line, if you just sign, ‘Yours sincerely’
You know that I’m praying the night and day through
Just hoping I’ll get one sweet letter from you

Mail for Missus Jones
Missus Jones don’t need it
Missus Jones is happy all the day
Mail for Missus Brown
Missus Brown don’t read it
Opens them and throws them right away
Mail man rings, then he sings
“Got some letters for you”
Here’s what he brings
Mail for the baker
My dress maker
Word from the landlord, too
I get letters from ev’rybody
Not a single word from you

Here’s what to do, even though you never crave me
And though you lie, say that you cry, it might save me
You know that I’m praying the night and day through
Just hoping I’ll get one sweet letter from you

Since you’re gone, I keep on
Feeling just as sorry as can be
I just wrote you a note
I’d be happy if you’d answer me

Oh, dear, how I need one sweet letter from you
How I’d love to read one sweet letter from you
You know that you left me so worried and blue
I always keep singing, oh, what’ll I do
Though it’s not fair, and you don’t care for me dearly
Drop me a line, if you just sign, ‘Yours sincerely’
You know that I’m praying the night and day through
Just hoping I’ll get one sweet letter from you
