All my bags are packed and 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 breaking; it's early morning
The taxi's waiting he's blowing his horn
I'm ready 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
'Cause I'm leaving on a jet plane
I 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
And tell you that they don't mean a thing
Every place I go, I think of you
Every song I sing, I sing for you
When I come back, I'll wear your wedding ring

[Chorus]

Now the time is come to leave you
One more time I let me kiss you and
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 that I want have to say

[Chorus]

I'm leaving on a jet plane
I don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe I hate to go

I'm leaving on a jet plane
Leaving on a jet plane
