World, I'm writing you this letter And I'm not the kind of guy Who likes to complain but this morning Private Grover Henson really felt forgotten And you couldn't have picked a worse time To drop that lonely morning rain There's mail call again this morning and I just disappeared from the end of the line I guess you'd say, I've run out of excuses About those lost letters of mine Did you know that last year's income tax Was the only mail I've gotten, that's right And they said I still owed a hundred bucks And Grover Henson feels forgotten (Grover Henson feels forgotten) So, I wrote myself a letter Mmm hmm, are you ready for me Yes, I did, and I must have read it To just about everyone

I signed it, your loving mother and I addressed it to her favorite son But God knows I've never known her And I've never known her love The only dad I ever had Was my father up above And, world, Grover Henson feels Forgotten in this early morning rain World, if my time should come tomorrow Could I ask one thing of you Would you send me one little letter, world If it's not too much to do And could you have it Read to me by a choir I'd hear it wherever I lie And Grover Henson Wouldn't feel forgotten If his time should come to die
