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 goodbye

But the dawn is breaking, it's early morning
The taxi is waiting, he is blowing his horn
Already I'm so lonesome, I could die

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you wait for me
Hold me like you never let me go

I'm leaving on a jetplane
I don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

There is so many times I've let you down
So many times I've played around
I tell you now, they don't mean a thing

Every place I go I think of you
Every song I sing I sing for you
When I come back I bring you a wedding ring

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you wait for me
Hold me like you never let me go

I'm leaving on a jetplane
I don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

Now the time has come to leave you
One more time let me kiss you
Close your eyes and I'll be on my way

Dream about the days to come
I won't have to leave alone
And I won't have to say

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you wait for me
Hold me like you never let me go

I'm leaving on a jetplane
I don't know when I'll be back again
I'm leaving on a jetplane
I don't know when I'll be back again

I'm leaving on a jetplane
I don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go
