The Lyrics

This actually happened, when I was charged extra postage to mail a small packet that, according to the postal clerk, was "not machineable" and had to be sorted manually!
The package was available, the envelope is sealable (oh yeah)
I wondered, was it mailable, the postage surely salable

It’s something besides just a kind of report, it isn’t any type of a letter of course,
It has to go through the channels approved but they told me,
My packet’s unmachineable!

Simply unmachineable, simply unmachineable

I didn’t know just what to do—uh! But I had to get that packet through
So coughing up some postage due, They said, ‘It won’t reflect on you”

It’s simply because how the packet’s designed, it will not go through a machine on the line
Handled by hand the only repine so they told me,
My packet’s unmachineable!

Simply unmachineable (It’s no lie, I can’t tell you where the postage went)
Simply unmachineable (don’t ask why, Just no other way to go)

No way to get around it, it’s got to go away
I need to get this packet sent out of here today
The safety feature on the pack, but now I got to pay
And then it was explained to me—the only thing to say

Simply unmachineable (my oh my. I can’t tell you where the postage went)
Simply unmachineable (that’s no lie. Just no other way to go)

Now nothing is erasable, tracking number traceable (whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa),
The address was so legible-yeah! The delay they said, “negligible”

It’s simply because how the packet’s designed, it will not go through a machine on the line
Handled by hand the only repine so they told me,
My packet’s unmachineable!

Simply unmachineable!
Simply unmachineable!


Simply unmachineable (my oh my. I can’t tell you where the postage went)
Simply unmachineable (that’s no lie. Just no other way to go)
Simply unmachineable (my oh my. I can’t tell you where the postage went)
Simply unmachineable (that’s no lie. Just no other way to go)

Simply unmachineable!
