Leaving On A Jet Plane

Leaving On A Jet Plane

Me First and the Gimme Gimmes

All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go,
I'm standing here outside your door,
I hate to wake you up to say good-bye.
But the dawn is breakin',
It's early morn,
The taxi's waitin'
He's blowin' his horn,
Already I'm so lonesome I could die.

So kiss me and smile for me,
Tell me that you'll wait for me,
Hold me like you'll never let me go.
'Cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane,
Don't know when I'll be back again,
Oh, babe, I hate to go.

There's so many times I've let you down
So many times I've fucked around,
I tell you now they don't mean a thing.
Ev'ry place I go I'll think of you,
Ev'ry song I sing I'll sing for you,
When I come back I'll bring your wedding ring.

Now the time has come to leave you,
One more time let me kiss you,
Then close your eyes I'll be on my way.
Dream about the days to come
When I won't have to leave alone,
About the times I won't have to say:

I'm leavin' on a jet plane,
Don't know when I'll be back again,
Oh, babe, I hate to go.
