I'm gonna sit right down
And write myself a letter
And make believe it came from you
I'm gonna write words oh-so sweet
They're gonna knock me off of my feet
A lot of kisses on the bottom
I'll be glad I got 'em

I'm gonna smile and say
I hope you're feeling better
And close with love, the way that you do
I'm gonna sit right down
And write myself a letter
And make believe it came from you

I'm gonna sit right down
And write myself a letter
And make believe that it came from you
I'm gonna write words oh-so sweet, yeah

Lotta kisses on the bottom
I'll be glad I got 'em
I'm gonna smile and say
I hope you're feeling better
And close with love, the way that you do

I'm gonna sit right down
And write myself a letter
And make believe it came from you

I'm gonna sit right down
And write myself a letter
And make believe it came
Make believe that it came from you
