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
Something is wrong and I know I got a feelin'
Maybe I'm lost but I can't make the cost
Of the airfare, tell me why, tell me 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, why don't you write?

Monday morning, sitting in the sun
Hopin' and wishin' that the mail would come
Tuesday, I 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?

Songwriters
SIMON, PAUL
