```
class Solution {
public:
ListNode *mergeTwoLists(ListNode *l1, ListNode *l2) {
if(l1 == NULL) return l2;
if(l2 == NULL) return l1;
if(l1->val < l2->val) {
l1->next = mergeTwoLists(l1->next, l2);
return l1;
} else {
l2->next = mergeTwoLists(l2->next, l1);
return l2;
}
}
};
```

This solution is not a tail-recursive, the stack will overflow while the list is too long :)
