The Lyrics

(inspired by the upcoming cost increase of a 34 cent stamp to 37 cents in June)
Wait! Oh yes wait a minute Mr. Postman
Wait! Wa-ai-ai-ait Mr. Postman

Mr. Postman, can it be
You're gonna up the cost of stamps by three
I know it's just a matter of time
Before the stamps will cost us 39

I'll send all my mail by May
To my girlfriend so far away
Then Mr. Postman, she can see
Just how I feel, for a lesser fee

We're all sitting here waiting Mr. Postman
Let's see in a year or three
If sending cards, or just a letter
Will cost us all $1.33

Please Mr. Postman
(Mr. Postman can it be)
Oh yeah
(You're gonna up the cost of stamps by three)
Please please Mr. Po-o-o-stman
(I know it's just a matter of time)
Oh yeah
(Before it costs $1.99)

In future days we'll ask you why
A book of stamps has to be so high
Post office lines will get worse not better
It'll take forever just to send off a letter

Mr. Postman
(Mr. Postman can it be)
Oh yeah
(You're gonna up the cost of stamps by three)
Please please Mr. Po-o-o-stman
(I know it's just a matter of time)
Oh yeah
(Before you up it yet another dime)

You gotta wait in line for 50 minutes
Oh yeah
Wait another 30 minutes
Oh yeah
Mr. Po-o-o-stman
Oh yeah
Please check it to see
If they've raised the fee

You got a wait in line for many minutes
Oh yeah
Then wait another 30 minutes
Oh yeah
60 minutes, 90 minutes
Oh yeah
I'll take back my letter
E-mail's better

You gotta wait a minute wait a minute
Oh yeah
Wasting all those precious minutes
Oh yeah
(repeat and fade)
