We'd go down to the river

And into the river we'd dive

Oh down to the river we'd ride

 

Then I got Mary pregnant

and man that was all she wrote

 

The River - Bruce Springsteen (which I listened to only last night)

Get me a ticket for an airplane

ain't got time to take a fast train

lonely days are gone

I'm a going home

my baby just wrote me a letter

 

The Letter - (can't remember who sang it)

 

 

And I think this qualifies for the sound effects thread too as I'm sure it starts with the sound of rain and/or a storm.

but early next morning

he brought my letter back

 

Return to Sender - Elvis Presley

 

 

And thanks Bill, that's one of those grew-up-listening-to-it songs, know all the words, but no idea of the artist.

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

Mr. Postman look and see

If there's a message in your bag for me

Could be a bomb or it could be a letter

It don't matter it can only get better

Mr. Postman look and see

If there's a message in your bag for me

You know it's been such a long long time

Since I could laugh at this world of mine

You got a nice white dress and a party on your confirmation

You got a brand new soul

And a cross of gold

But Virginia they didn't give you quite enough information

You didn't count on me

When you were counting on your rosary
