Why Don’t You Write Me - Simon & Garfunkel Lyrics

[Verse 1]
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
(La, la, la)
Why don't you write?

[Verse 2]
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

[Verse 3]
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
(La, la, la)

[Outro]
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
I'm gonna hang my body from the highest tree
Why don't you write me?
Why don't you write me?
Why don't you write me?
Why don't you write me?
Why don't you write me?
Why don't you write me?
Why don't you write me?
