Please Mr. Postman の歌詞

昨日、 “Please Mr. Postman” の歌詞書く暇がなかったので、もう一度掲載する。コーラスの部分は重なっているところがよくわからなかったりして省略した部分もある。”You better” はもちろん、”You’d better” の had が完全に省略されたもの。

(Wait)
Oh yes, wait a minute, Mr. Postman!
(Wait)
Wait [weieieieip], Mr. Postman!

(Please, Mr. Postman, look and see)
Oh, yeah!
(Is there a letter in your bag for me?)
Please, please, Mr. Postman [poʊoʊoʊspmən],
(Why's it been a mighty long time)
Oh, yeah!
(Since I heard from this boyfriend of mine?)
There must be some word today
From my boy-friend so far away.
Please, Mr. Postman, look and see
If there’s a letter, a letter for me.

I've been standing here waiting,
Mr. Postman, so, oh, so patiently
For just a card or just a letter
Saying he's returning home to me. 

Please, Mr. Postman,
(Mr. Postman, look and see)
Oh, yeah!
(Is there a letter in your bag for me?)
Please, please, Mr. Postman [poʊoʊoʊspmən],
(Why's it been a mighty long time)
Oh, yeah!
(Since I heard from this boyfriend of mine?)

So many days you passed me by.
You saw the tears standing in my eyes.
You wouldn't stop to make me feel better
By leaving me a card or a letter.

Please, Mr. Postman, look and see
If there’s a letter, oh yeah, in your bag for me.
You know, it’s been so long,
Yes, since I heard from that boy-friend of mine.
You better wait a minute, wait a minute.
Oh, you better wait a minute.
Please, please, Mr. Postman,
(Wait a minute, Mr. Postman)
Please check and see just one more time for me.
You gotta wait, wait a minute.
Oh, you better wait a minute, wait a minute.
Please, Mr. Postman [poʊoʊoʊspmən], Don’t pass me by.
You see the tears in my eyes.
You better wait, wait a minute,
Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute.
Please, Mr. Postman…
