The Letter
The Box Tops Lyrics


Gimme a ticket for an aeroplane
Ain't got time to take a fast train
Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home
My baby, just a wrote me a letter

I don't care how much money I gotta spend
Got to get back to my baby again
Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home
My baby, just-a wrote me a letter

Well, she wrote me a letter
Said she couldn't live without me no more
Listen mister, can't you see I got to get back
To my baby once-a more
Anyway, yeah

Gimme a ticket for an aeroplane
Ain't got time to take a fast train
Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home
My baby, just-a wrote me a letter

Well, she wrote me a letter
Said she couldn't live without me no more
Listen mister, can't you see I got to get back
To my baby once-a more
Anyway, yeah

Gimme a ticket for an aeroplane
Ain't got time to take a fast train
Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home
My baby, just-a wrote me a letter, my baby just-a wrote me a letter

Gimme a ticket for an aeroplane
Ain't got time to take a fast train
Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home
'Cause my baby just wrote me a letter
I don't care how much money I gotta spend
Got to get back to my baby again
Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home
'Cause my baby just wrote me a letter
Well, she wrote me a letter
Said she couldn't live without me no more
Listen, mister, can't you see I got to get back
To my baby once more?
Anyway, yeah gimme a ticket for an aeroplane
Ain't got time to take a fast train
Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home
'Cause my baby just wrote me a letter
Well, she wrote me a letter
Said she couldn't live without me no more
Listen, Mister, can't you see I got to get back
To my baby once more?
Anyway, yeah gimme a ticket for an aeroplane
Ain't got time to take a fast train
Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home
'Cause my baby just wrote me a letter
Because my baby just wrote me a letter

I'm going to see them next week.. I'll be bopping like an old fool in person - live!

Although it would have been funnier to watch the keyboard player lip sync!

they're coming to Alaska!!!!!

They're still on tour - see if you can find them..! Let's support these older guys who got ripped off by the music industry years ago.. they don't make the billions they do now

And it ain't even music anymore!

Rock on!

@Nobe Oddy you're the kind of poster that makes youtube famous. You're full of BS.

@Nobe Oddy what was his name? Did he lay down the keyboards in the studio for "The Letter"?

He was 16 years old and what a voice! When this song first came out, I was convinced it was an older guy singing, so quite surprised when I learned years later he was only 16!!

god

due he isnt even singing in the clip xD
they are lip syncing. prob cos the singer is way to high

First time seeing him. I was 20 when this tune came out and I loved it. I would've gone out of my way to see him in person if I knew he looked like this! Gee. He was only 16? They had a few other big hits and then, not as much after a few years.

@Mary Salvi that was late the other night. not sure exactly what I meant by it. Bye bye Alex Chilton? IDK.
