Idea and lyrics by delgreer from the Ideas page. I like the angle on this idea and cannot resist this song, so here we go...

You go on vacation and don't read your letters
While Gretchen Wu gently weeps
Her life stands still; she has no one to talk to
While Gretchen Wu gently weeps

I don't know why nobody told her
to get her own damn cell phone
I don't know how Nigel cajoled her
to use you as her messengers

You don't check your notes, nor your e-mails or faxes
While Gretchen Wu gently weeps
She misses her mail in English and Latin
While Gretchen Wu gently weeps

Parody of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" by George Harrison, Eric Clapton and some other guys.

The last 90 seconds of this jingle absolutely doesn't exist without me first hearing Prince. One of my musical heroes.

my wife doesn't understand why I plan my day so that i can hear the show, I take lunch early specifically so that I can be in my car to listen to the mail jingle. A thank you is all that I can offer. Martin

You go ahead -- I imagine at this point, they see your name and immediately open the e-mail; they see my name, and they're like, This jerk asking for another sticker? *delete*
