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.

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

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

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

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

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
