"Trains and Boats and Planes" as written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David....
Trains and boats and planes are passing by
They mean a trip to Paris or Rome
To someone else, but not for me
The trains and boats and planes
Took you away
Away from me

We were so in love, and high above
We had a star to wish upon
Wish and dreams come true, but not for me
The trains and the boats and planes
Took you away
Away from me

You are from another part of the world
You had to go back awhile and then
You said you soon would return again
I'm waiting here like I promised to
I'm waiting here, but where are you?

Trains and boats and planes took you away
But every time I see them I pray
And if my prayers can cross the sea
The trains and the boats and planes
Will bring you back
Back home to me

    General CommentHis girlfriend left him to go on a trip and swore she'd be back eventually. The guy in the song keeps on waiting and waiting because he thought they were really in love, but the girl found a better thing elsewhere
