  • Song Lyrics:
    Well, hey, how ya doin', have a seat, have a drink
    Boy, it's good to see you, what can I say
    Whoa, sorry, gotta run, we'll get together again
    Say, what was your name, anyway
    Well, we're workin' on the problem
    We'll get back to ya soon (yeah)
    But don't try to call me
    I'll be in a meeting every afternoon
    For a year, maybe longer, keep in touch
    Thanks for droppin' by and have a nice day

    The check's in the mail (hey)
    You're beautiful
    Don't ever change
    You know what I mean
    My girl will call your girl
    We'll talk, we'll do lunch
    Or leave a message on my machine
    So baby, won't you sign
    On the dotted line
    I'm gonna make your dreams come true
    The check's in the mail
    Would I lie to you

    Well, hey, wait a minute
    What's the matter, hold on
    You want me to fork over the loot
    You say you hate my guts
    You wanna take me to court
    And you got yourself a lawyer with a three-piece suit
    Well, I'm proud to say you're not
    The only critic of mine (yeah)
    So if you wanna sue me
    I'm afraid you're gonna have to wait in line
    Take a number, thanks for calling
    Who loves you, baby
    Don't forget to read the fine print

    See, the check's in the mail (hey)
    You're beautiful
    Don't ever change
    You know what I mean
    My girl will call your girl
    We'll talk, we'll do lunch
    Or leave a message on my machine
    So baby, won't you sign
    On the dotted line
    I'm gonna make your dreams come true
    The check's in the mail
    Would I lie to you

    Aw, trust me

    The check's in the mail (hey)
    You're beautiful
    Don't ever change
    You know what I mean
    Why don't you leave a message with my girl
    I'll have lunch with your machine
    So baby, won't you sign
    On the dotted line
    I'm gonna make your dreams come true
    The check's in the mail
    Would I lie to you
    The check's in the mail
    Would I lie to you
