Special deliver man, special deliver man
Please take this letter down to Brownville for me
Special deliver man, special deliver Man
Please take this letter down to Brownville, for me
Now that you can tell Miss Cornelius, I'm up here in Chicago
Oh, but I'm just as blue as I can be

Special deliver man, she may not be at home
Not but you need to worry about knockin' on her door
Special deliver man, she may not be home
Not but you need to worry about knockin' on her door
Now but you could just take it back to the office
Beause Miss Cornelia goes to school, you know

Now give me, 9-0-9
I want to use your line a while
Now, give me, 9-0-9
Lord, I want to use your line a while
Now that I want to talk with Miss Cornelia Burns
Because she just my little angel child

Now special deliver man, after you've done what I told
Lord, then I want you to ride away
Special deliver man, after you've done what I've told you
Lord, an I want you to ride away
Now, that's the reason you hear me sing the blues
About my little Cornelia Burns, ev'ryday.
