ooh

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 breaking
its early morn
the taxis waiting
he's blowing his horn
already i'm so lonesome i could die

*CHORUS
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 leaving 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 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'll wear your wedding ring

*CHORUS*

and now the time has come to leave you
one more time
oh let me kiss you
then close your eyes
and i'll be on my way
dream about the days to come
when i won't have to leave alone
about the times when i won't have to say...

*CHORUS*

i'm leaving on a jet plane
don't know when i'll be back again
oh babe, i hate to go

i'm leaving on a jet plane
leaving on a jet plane x 8
on a jet plane
