seven letters lyrics – ben e. king

this is my last letter
dear, to you

this is my last letter, baby
i just can’t write you anymore
my poor little finger’s swollen
i’m tired of pacing the floor, yes, i am

threw away our favorite record
it was tearing me apart
this is my seventh letter, baby
just to satisfy my heart

(one) monday, i wrote and told you
i was all alone and blue
(two) tuesday, i wrote again, baby
i said i loved no one, no one
no one but you, no, i don’t

(three) wednesday, i wired you a cable
begging you to call
(four) thursday, i sent the message
i said i was wrong and, darling
please come back home

(five) friday, i woke up crying
with the sniff of a tear
(six) come along long lonesome sat*rday
i did the same thing all over again
yes, i did

(seven) this is my seventh letter, baby
on this bright sunday morning
just got off my knees from praying
i said, oh, lord, oh, lord
please send her back home
can’t she hear me talking to her

(this is my last letter
dear, to you)
seven letters, seven days
seven long, lonely days
there, i said it

(this is my last letter
dear, to you) yes, it is
yes, it is, yes, it is
oh, yes, it is
