The Mamas & The Papas – Leaving On A Jet Plane lyrics

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 taxis waiting, he's blowin' his horn
Already I'm so lonesome I could die

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 let you down
So many times I played around
I tell you now, 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 bring your wedding ring

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me, hold me like you 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.

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

Dream about the days to come,
When I won't have to leave alone,
About the times, I won't have to say...

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me, hold me like you 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...
