Marvelettes – Destination: Anywhere lyrics

Said to the man at the railroad station
I want a ticket just for one
He said well, if you insist
But where you want to go, Miss?

Destination anywhere
East or west, I don't care
You see, my baby don't want me no more
And this old world ain't got no back door

He looked at me with a funny face and said
Are you sure you wanna go just any place?
I said if you ever loved someone the way I loved that man
Surely, Mr. Ticket Agent, you could understand

Destination anywhere
East or west, I don't care
You see, my baby don't want me no more
And this old world ain't got no back door

'Cause if it did, it would swing both ways
And I'd go right back to happy yesterdays
When I loved him tenderly
And all he needed was me

As I stared through the window of the train
I thought I heard my baby call my name
But it was just the conductor saying
Which stop would you prefer?

Destination anywhere
East or west, I don't care
You see, my baby don't want me no more
And this old world ain't got no back door

(Fade)
Destination anywhere
East or west, I don't care
Destination anywhere
East or west, I don't care
Destination anywhere
East or west, I don't care
