I NEVER REPLY
 
div
 
There is an old coon, lonely, you see
Without a friend in the world is he
And every morning he's looking from his window
When the postman passes by
Bang goes the knocker at every door
(Yes) Every door but number four
That's where the old coon lives, you see
And when he sees the postman, he will shout with glee.

Chorus: 'No one ever sends a letter to me
No one ever drops a line
I've no friends upon this earth, you see
I'm what they call a Mister Nobody
Tho' I'm poor, I am proud and independent
And I never, never sigh
As no one ever sends a letter to me
I never reply.'


'I often wonder, wonder,' says he
Why don't a friend send a letter to me?
It must be funny to see your name in writing
On a letter all for you
Sometimes I think I know what I will do
I'll spoof that postman, wouldn't you?
I'll make him wonder, fly old elf
I'll address a letter one day to myself.'

Chorus: 'No one ever sends a letter to me
No one ever drops a line
I've no friends upon this earth, you see
I'm what they call a Mister Nobody
Tho' I'm poor, I am proud and independent
And I never, never sigh
As no one ever sends a letter to me
I never reply.'
