Last Chance To Turn Around

Artist: Gene Pitney (peak Billboard position # 13 in 1965)
Words and Music by Anthony Bruno, ? Elgin, and Victor Don Millrose

The wheels of my old car are aturnin, burnin?up the highway
Tonight that girl of mine will be yearnin?for not learnin?to see things my way
She hurt me for the very last time, Im not hangin?around
I'll show her I can leave her behind
Im gettin?out of town (Im gettin?out of town)
I wont back down (I wont back down)
I wont back down (I wont back down)

Last exit to Brooklyn, last chance to turn around
Last exit to Brooklyn, gonna keep these wheels of mine coverin?ground.

Last night I caught that girl lyin? tryin?to deceive me
And now all of these tears she's cryin?Im not buyin?you better believe me
She swore that she was mine alone, our love would never die
Im leavin?now for parts unknown
I saw her with that guy (I saw her with that guy)
that's the reason why (that's the reason why)
I'll be passin?by (Ill be passin?by)

The last exit to Brooklyn, the last chance to turn around
The last exit to Brooklyn, gonna keep these wheels of mine coverin?ground
On the last exit to Brooklyn, the last chance to turn around
The last exit to Brooklyn, the last chance to turn around
The last
