    I think it's only fair
    that I should let you know
    the very day you wnet away
    I got another beau.

    He's short and rather stout
    His hair is just a fringe
    His eyes are weak and cleary
    His teeth would make you cringe.

    His uniform is wrinkles
    And shiny in the pants
    But when I see him coming
    My heart begins to dance.

    I love him with a passion
    That you'd never understand
    He's never made an advance
    Or even held my hand.

    And even if he's slowish
    And his walk is rather crabbed
    If he should pass me by
    I would be very sad.

    He never calls me up
    To let me know he's one his way
    But when he doesn't come
    It's strictly a wasted day.

    He always brings me presents
    Which is why I love him so
    But the gifts are not his doings
    And it doesn't cost him dough.

    This guy I adore
    In uniform of blue
    Is just the little mailman
    Bringing letter dear, from you!
