Don't Read The Letter
Patti Page

Don't Read The Letter

Oh don't read the letter i wrote you
Paying no mind to the things that i said
Don't read the letter i wrote you
Just tear it to pieces instead

After we quarrelled last evening
I wrote you a note of goodbye
Then when you called me this morning
I sat down and started to cry

Ran down the street to the mailman
And asked him, "oh what should i do?"
He told me i could do nothing
'cause he just gave my letter to you

[repeat chorus]

I know that i acted hastily
Yes my words were heartless and cruel
Is it too late to be sorry?
Forgive me for being a fool
