Mailbox

It was around the 5th of May, I think
When the telephone began to ring
Seems her best friend was feelin'kinda down,
So she packed a little travelin' bag, said I'll be back in about a week
S'I'Hope you don't mind, I'm headin' out of town

I said , don't give it a second thought, you'll be back just have some fun,I'll be hear just waitin' by the door.
Then she pecked my cheek, and said "Love you Hon, and you know maybe while aI'm gonr you could pickup around here a little bit". Thank you Hon.

If I had only knew, I thought our love was true.

Well a couple days turned to a week, then three then four then finally six
And I began to think, "maybe there's something wrong with my phone.

Then my buddy said, "she's been tryin' to call"
I said, what do you mean? I check my messages all the time and he said,
You're danged old mailbox is full".You gotta empty it out evry once in a while, there's a little red button you just push it down . . .every once in a while, just press delete. She sent that e-mail,
Then he printed it out , aw he's such a good friend but when I started to read it I said, "This can't be for me".

It Said, "Dear John," hell my name is Clem , "you wouldn't answer my calls so I sent this to Jim.
I guess you figured out by now that I ain't comin' home.
Hell, I never thought that, I'm her one true love.
Says she's sick of waitin' for me to blossom,
And her fingers got tired so I had to uncross 'em
I just wouldn't believe who she met down at Loretta's house.

He's a rich cattle baron from down near Austin
With a red Eldorado, and he really adores me
He's everything that I want and everything that you're not
He's Loretta's husband's cousin's mother's twin's half-brother.
And he's got more money than goddamn Oprah.
Says she's thinkin' real hard 'bout changin' her last name. To his.

Now, whatever happened to for richer or poorer, better or worse.
Says here she never thought things would get quite this bad. and after everything I did for her, why I even cleaned up our little love nest anticipatin' her return.

I didn't know, my mailbox was full
The cellphone store never said a word,so I didn't have a clue.
I didn't know, my mailbox was full

I didn't know, my voicemail box was full
