Marvelettes – Twistin' Postman lyrics

The Marvelettes – Twistin’ Postman

Sitting by the window, feeling sad and blue
All because I haven't heard from you
And then my momma said “Look, look, here comes the postman” (Look, look)
A-twistin’ down the avenue (Twistin’ Postman)
He's got a letter in his hand (Twistin’ Postman)
And I know it has to be for you (Twistin’ Postman)
He's got the mail sack a-twistin’ round his back
Cause he's a (Twistin’ Postman)

A-he’s a-twistin’ to the left, twistin’ to the right (Twistin’ Postman)
Twistin’ all around and round (Twistin’ Postman)
If he didn't bring a letter (Twistin’ Postman)
To make me feel better (Twistin’ Postman)
I was gonna put you down (Twistin’ Postman)
I'm so glad he came in time
To ease this achin’ heart of mine
Cause he's a (Twistin’ Postman)

Hey, (Twistin’, probably better find him)
Oh Yeah, (Twistin’ probably better find him)
(Twistin’ bringing me a letter)
There he is walkin’ down the street
Ooh, (Makin’ me feel better)
He's got the mail sack a-swingin’ ‘round his back
Cause he's a..

He’s a twistin’ to the left

(Twistin’ Postman)

Aah, ha, he’s twistin’ postman, look at him go
Twistin’, twistin’
He’s got the mail sack a-twistin’ round his back
Cause he’s a (Twistin’ Postman)

Twistin’ to the left, (See him go now) twistin’ to the right (Twistin’ Postman)
Twistin’ all around and round (Twistin’ Postman)
If he didn't bring a letter (Twistin’ Postman)
To make me feel better (Twistin’ Postman)
I was gonna put you down (Twistin’ Postman)
I'm so glad he came in time
To ease this achin’ heart of mine
Cause he's a (Twistin’ Postman)

Look, look (look, look) here comes the mailman (Twistin’ Postman)
A-twistin’ down the avenue (look, look, Twistin’ Postman)
He’s got a letter in his hand (look, look, Twistin’ Postman)
And I know it has to be for you….
