    I gave a letter to the postman,
    He put it in his sack.
    Bright in early next morning,
    He brought my letter back.

    She wrote upon it:
    Return to sender, address unknown.
    No such number, no such zone.
    We had a quarrel, a lover’s spat
    I write I’m sorry but my letter keeps coming back.

    So then I dropped it in the mailbox
    And sent it special d.
    Bright in early next morning
    It came right back to me.

    She wrote upon it:
    Return to sender, address unknown.
    No such person, no such zone.

    This time I’m gonna take it myself
    And put it right in her hand.
    And if it comes back the very next day
    Then I’ll understand - the writing on it

    Return to sender, address unknown.
    No such number, no such zone.
