lyrics

Gimme a ticket for an aeroplane,

Ain't got time to take a fast train.

Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home,

'Cause my baby just a-wrote me a letter.

I don't care how much money I gotta spend,
Got to get back to my baby again 

Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home,

'Cause my baby just a-wrote me a letter.

Well, she wrote me a letter 

Said she couldn't live without me no mo'.

Listen mister can't you see I got to get back 

To my baby once a-mo'--anyway...

Gimme a ticket for an aeroplane,

Ain't got time to take a fast train.

Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home,

'Cause my baby just a-wrote me a letter.

Well, she wrote me a letter 

Said she couldn't live without me no mo'.

Listen mister can't you see I got to get back 

To my baby once a-mo'--anyway...

Gimme a ticket for an aeroplane,

Ain't got time to take a fast train.

Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home,
'Cause my baby just a-wrote me a letter.

Because my baby just a-wrote me a letter.
