Jerry Butler - Hey Western Union Man
A.
Hey Western Union Man

Lyrics:

Oh, Western Union man
Send a telegram to my baby
Send a telegram, send a telegram, whoa
Send a telegram to my baby

This is what I want you to say
I want you to tell her that I’m all alone
I tried to call her on the phone
Tell her I’m in misery
And think she’s avoiding me
And if the telegram don’t do
Send a box of candy too
And maybe some flowers
Tell her that I missed her for hours and hours

Send a telegram, send a telegram
Send a telegram, man, to my baby
You hear what I say

Oh, Western Union man
Send a telegram, oh
Send a telegram to my baby
Western Union man, hey
Send a telegram, oh
Send a telegram, send a telegram, whoa
Send a telegram, man, to my baby

This is what I want you to do (listen)
Tell me, have you got a boy you can send
This is what I want him to do
Put him on his bike right away
See if he can get my message through
Maybe tomorrow, but mail it right away
I want the girl to know that I miss her
Something like yesterday

Send a telegram, send a telegram man, whoa
Send a telegram, man, to my baby
Do you hear what I say

Oh, Western Union man
Why don’t you send a telegram
Oh, send a telegram to my baby
Western Union man
Please send a telegram
Oh, send it, send a telegram, send it
Send it, send it, sent it right on to my baby
Do you hear what I say

Hey, Western Union man
Send a telegram, oh
Send a telegram to my baby
