Western Union Man
Jerry Butler Lyrics


Oh Western Union man
Send a telegram to my baby
Send a telegram, send a telegram
Who, send a telegram to my baby
This is what I want you to do
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
Send a telegram to my baby
Oh Western Union man
Hey send a telegram
Send a telegram, send a telegram
Oh send a telegram 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
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 send a telegram
Oh send it right on to my baby
Hey Western Union man
Send a telegram, send a telegram

The great Jerry Butler, great song.

Bill Davison

There is such an incredible energy in this song! Such an awesome memory of the late 1960's! It's hard to find much soul any deeper than this is! Love it!
