I think I've had enough, you know, religion's tough
It's a state of mind I don't need

I'm sending a letter to my mother
I need some loving, send it to me
I lost my lover, unfaithful lover
I need some money, send it to me

I need consoling, your boy feeling lonely
Please try to phone me, send it to me

Send it to me

If she can't travel, I can take the mule train
I can take the aeroplane, send it to me

And I'm begging you, begging you, begging you
Down on my knees
Baby please, please, baby please

You, you, you've got to send her, send her, send her
Send it to me

Yeah, I'm sending in a letter to my sister
In Australia, sister Marie
Ain't you got no doctor? No second cousin?
That needs my loving, send it to me

She won't have to wash or scrape, she won't have to relocate
I guarantee her personal security
She don't have to be 5 foot 10 or a blond or brunette
She don't have to be no social hostess, send her

She may work in a factory right next door to me
In my fantasy, send her to me

She could be Rumanian, she could be Bulbarian
She could be Albanian, she could be Hungarian
She might be Ukrainian, she could be Australian
She could be the alien, send it to me
