(simon)Why don’t you write meI’m out in the jungleI’m hungry to hear youSend me a cardI am waiting so hard to be near youSomething is wrong and I know I got a feelin’Maybe I’m lost but I can’t make the cost of the airfareTell me why, tell me whyWhy don’t you write meA letter would brighten my loneliest eveningMail it today if it’s only to sayThat you’re leaving meWhy don’t you writeMonday morning sitting in the sunHopin’ and wishin’ that the mail would comeTuesday I never got a wordWednesday,, thursday ain’t no signDrank a half a bottle of iodineFriday, woe is meI’m gonna hang my body from the highest treeWhy don’t you write meWhy don’t you write me
