HEY, WESTERN UNION MAN
Jerry Butler
Oh western union man

Send a telegram to my baby
Send a telegram, send a telegram
This is what I want you to do
Who, send a telegram to my baby
Tell her I'm in misery
I want you to tell her that I'm all alone
I tried to call her on the phone
And think she's avoiding me
And if the telegram don't do
Send a box of candy too
And maybe some flowers
Tell her that I missed her for hours and hours
Send a telegram man
Send a telegram, send a telegram
To my baby you hear what I say
Oh western union man send a telegram
Send a telegram to my baby
Hey send a telegram
Oh western union man
Oh send a telegram to my baby
Send a telegram, send a telegram
This is what I want him to do
This is what I want you to do
Put him on his bike right away
Listen, tell me have you got a boy you can send
See if he can get my message through
Maybe tomorrow
But mail it right away
I want the girl to know that I miss her
Send a telegram, send a telegram man
Something like yesterday
Oh western union man why don't you send a telegram
To my baby
Oh send a telegram to my baby
Do you hear what I say
Hey western union man
Western union man send a telegram
Oh send it right on to my baby
Send a telegram, send a telegram
