Why Don't You Write Me
by Simon & Garfunkel



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?

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.
(La, la, la)

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?
