Please Mr. Postman - The Carpenters (Cover)


Happy Diwali to all of you!!
Song: Please Mr. Postman (1974)
Vocals/Producers: Karen & Richard Carpenter
Cover: Rashmi Nair
Mixing: George Kuruvilla



Thanks George, for mixing this song. You have done a great job. Preferably, pls listen to it with your headphones. “Please Mr. Postman” (1961)was the debut single by The Marvelettes, notable as the first Motown song to reach the number-one position on the Billboard Hot 100 pop singles chart.

This song has been covered frequently, including a version by ‘The Beatles’ on their ‘With The Beatles’ album (1963).

“Please Mr. Postman” became a number-one hit again in early 1975, when ‘The Carpenters’ cover of the song also reached the top position of the Billboard Hot 100.





Lyrics:

Oh yes, wait a minute
Mister Postman
(Wait )
Wait Mister Postman
(*) Please Mister Postman look and see
( Oh yeah )
If there’s a letter in your bag for me
( Please, Please, Mister Postman )
Why’s it takin’ such a long time
( Oh yeah )
For me to hear from that boy of mine

There must be
Some word today
From my boyfriend
So far away
Please Mister Postman
Look and see
If there’s a letter
A letter for me

I’ve been standin’ here
Waitin’ Mister Postman
So patiently
For just a card
Or just a letter
Sayin’ he’s returning’
Home to me

Repeat (*)

So many days
You passed me by
See the tears
Standin’ in my eyes
You didn’t stop
To make me feel better
By leavin’ me
A card or a letter

Repeat (*)

(Why don’t you check it and see one more time
for me you gotta)
Wait a minute, wait a minute….
(Mister Postman)
Mister Postman look and see
(C’mon deliver the letter, the sooner, the better)
Mister Postman..

Hip! Hip! Hurray!! You might make Kareen jealous! Lucky she's no more!

Jokes apart, you've sung this one very very well. I never thought except Kareen anyone else could carry this one so gracefully!
