I’m Gonna Sit Right Down And Write Myself a Letter

Writer(s): Fred Ahlert / Joe Young
From the Album Sinatra the Television Years-1957-1965
Originally made famous by Fats Waller

I’m gonna sit right down and write myself a letter,
And make believe it came from you
I’m gonna write words oh so sweet,
They’re gonna knock me off my feet.
A lotta kisses on the bottom, I’ll be glad I got ’em
I’m gonna smile and say: “I hope you’re feeling better”
And close with love the way you do
I’m gonna sit right down and write myself a letter
And make believethat it came from you.

I’m gonna smile and say: “I hope you’re much better”
And close with love the way you do
I’m gonna sit right down and write myself a letter
And make believe it came, though I know it’s not the same,
And make believe it came from you.
(Spoken to the piano player) You’re a fine lad.
