Lyric

Return to senderReturn to sender
I gave a letter to the postmanHe put it in his sackBright early next morningHe brought my letter back
Return to sender, address unknownNo such number, no such zoneWe had a quarrel, a lover’s spatI write I’m sorry, but my letter keeps coming back
So then I dropped it in the mailboxAnd sent it special DBright and early next morningIt came right back to me
Return to sender, address unknownNo such person, no such zone
This time I’m gonna take it myself and put it right in her handAnd if it comes back the very next day then I’ll understand
Return to sender, address unknownNo such number, no such zone
Return to senderReturn to senderReturn to senderReturn to sender…
