Oh, jealous me and careless you, the odds were just too great
I couldn't take those lonely nights, you made me sit and wait
I thought I'd seen the last of you when you walked out of sight
Instead I see you in my dreams each night.

Oh, the key's in the mailbox come on in
I'm sittin' here wishing dear, I had your love again
I'd never even ask you where you've been
The key's in the mailbox come on in.

--- Instrumental ---

I said, I'd rather be alone than share your company
I said, don't come around at all if you want more than me
But sittin' here alone I can't deny this flame that burns
I'd gladly take you back on any terms.

Oh, the key's in the mailbox come on in
I'm sittin' here wishing dear, I had your love again
I'd never even ask you where you've been
The key's in the mailbox come on in...
