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 morn'
the taxi 's 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
I'm leaving on a jetplane,
don't know when I'll be back again,
oh babe I'd hate to go
I'd hate to go...

There 're so many times I've let you down
so many times I've played around
but now you know that they don't mean a thing

Every place I go, I'll think of you
Every song I sing, I'll sing for you
When I come back I'll wear your weddingring

So kiss me and smile for me
tell me that you'll wait for me
hold me like you'll never let me go

I'm leaving on a jetplane
don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go
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
when I won't have to leave alone,
about the times when I don't have to say...:

repeat chorus

I'm leaving on a jetplane, I'm leaving on a jetplane,
I'm leaving on a jetplane, I', leaving on a jetplane.......(fade)
