I left my baby, overseas
But I'm going to get her back
Someday
I got my papers
I'll do some walking
It doesn't matter
How far I've got to go
I'll take those chances
I'll climb those fences
To get my baby from overseas

'Cause she, she's my girl
Yeah, she, she's my world
She needs me

I've been out working
Every day now
To get my girlfriend
On a plane out of Romania
Through the curtain
Into the arms of her
Guy who's hurtin'

'Cause she, she's my girl
Yeah, she, she's my world
She needs me
I've been working
Everyday now
To get my girlfriend
On a plane out of Romania
Through the curtain
Into the arms of her
Guy who's hurtin'

'Cause she, she's my girl
Yeah, she, she's my world
She needs me

I got some friends who'll
Forge her passport
Make her look like a UN Diplomat
Get her to peace talks in Geneva
That's where they'll get her
And that's where I'll meet her

'Cause she, she's my girl
Yeah, she, she's my world
She needs me

Work, work, work, work
To get my baby
Work
Through the curtain
Work
To get my baby
Work
To get my baby
Work
Through the curtain
Ride down that Orient Express
