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 a half a bottle of iodine
Friday, woe is me
Gonna hang my body from the highest tree

Why don't you write me?
