"Destination Anywhere" as written by Nickolas Ashford and Valerie Simpson....
Said to the man at the railroad station,
"I want a ticket, just for one."
He said, "Well, if you insist. Where you want to go, Miss?"

Oh, destination anywhere
East or west, I don't care
You see my baby don't love me no more
This old world ain't got no back door

He looked at me with a funny face and said,
"Are you sure you want to go just anyplace?"
I said, "If you ever loved someone, the way I loved that man,
Surely Mr. ticket agent, you should understand."

Destination anywhere
East or west, I don't care
You see my baby don't want me no more
This old world ain't got no back door

'Cause every day, it would swing both ways
And we'd go on back to happy yesterdays
When I loved him tenderly
And all he needed was me.

As I stepped through the window of the train
I thought I heard my baby call my name
But it was just the conductor saying,
"Which stop would you prefer?"

Oh, destination anywhere
East or west, I don't care
You see my baby don't love me no more
This old world ain't got no back door

Destination anywhere
East or west, I don't care
Destination anywhere
East or west, I don't care
Destination anywhere
East or west, I don't care
Destination anywhere
East or west, I don't care
{ad lib to end}
