Simon & Garfunkel


Why Don't You Write Me

Paul Simon, 1969

Enregistrement : en novembre 1969


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


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


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 half a bottle of iodine

Friday, woe is me

Gonna hang my body from the highest tree

Why don't you write me?
