Down at the Cold War Institute
They were signing new recruits
He went down to the station in his three piece suit

Now she had cried for him to stay
But there was nothing more to say
As she was waving a white kerchief as the train pulled away
Singing bye bye, baby boy
I hope they treat you well, well, well

It was another situation as the train left the station
It was hello Hopeville, I need a vacation
Now the world's been cruel
This time she really let me down
I thought I'd go back to school

Yeah, try to clean up this town
And now it's hello Hopeville
I know you're gonna treat me
Well, well, well
Well, well, well, get gone

Well, well, well, looky here, looky here
Well, well, well, what have we got here?
Got me a runaway kid, got no money never did

Got the sense to come in out of the rain
He was waitin' for a station
Just like some people wait for a train
And I'm singing bye-bye, baby boy
I hope they treat you well, well, well

Well, well, well
Well, well, well
