lyrics

In the front yard
By the big tree
We rake the leaves
Rolling around
Hear the crackly sound
That autumn brings

In the back yard
'Neath the red sun
We play a game
Called “Find Mom's Wedding Ring”
None of us won

And we wait for the mailman to come
Yes we wait for the mailman to come

On the swing set
Pumping higher
I skin my knees
We take a nap
And gather the sap
From all the trees

In the bathroom
On the step stool
Bubbles in the sink
Mom fills the tub
Gives us a scrub
Cause we really stink

And we wait for the mailman to come
Yes we wait for the mailman to come

Why do all the cars go by
Never stopping to say hi
I love it, Mama sings
When the doorbell rings

In the tree house
Lost my front tooth
To a piece of pie
We wait with the moon
Cause Mama says soon
Her box will arrive

In the bedroom
Once we're tucked in
The cassette plays
Sweet lullabies for
Us to ignore
So we escape

And we wait for the mailman to come
Everyday’s always the same
Cause the mailman never came
