Mail Myself to You

  • Mail Myself To You

    Words and Music by Woody Guthrie


    I'm a-gonna wrap myself in paper, 

    I'm gonna daub myself with glue, 

    Stick some stamps on top of my head;

    I'm gonna mail myself to you.


    I'm a gonna tie me up in a red string, 

    I'm gonna tie blue ribbons too,

    I'm a-gonna climb up in my mail box;

    I'm gonna mail myself to you.


    When you see me in your mail box, 

    Cut the string and let me out; 

    Wash the glue off my fingers, 

    Stick some bubble gum in my mouth.


    Take me out of my wrapping paper, 

    Wash the stamps off my head; 

    Pour me full of ice cream sodies,

    Put me in my nice warm bed.
