Leaving On A Jetplane
Engelbert Humperdinck Lyrics


All my bags are packed I'm ready to go
I'm standin' here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
But the dawn is breakin' it's early morn
The taxi's waitin' 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 leavin' 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'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'll never let me go
Cause I'm leavin' 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'll never let me go
Cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh baby, I hate to go

Cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

My aunt cries when this songs starts playing it reminds her of my cousin going overseas to study

I know the feeling.

I've listened to almost all versions of this great song, though beautiful expressions encompassed by the lyricist, the great country singer, John Denver and his version is sweet too, but none is better than this version by baritone singer Engelbert. I have no hesitation in saying, that this is the best one and this cover version is even better than the original one and the one by Tom Jones. Waah Engelbert, waah!

MUY BUENA CANCION, MUCHAS GRACIAS ENGELBERT.
