(Sung by Will)

All my bags are packed,
I'm ready to go,
I'm standing here outside your door,
I'd hate to wake you up to say goodbye.

But the dawn is breaking, its early morn,
The taxis waiting, he's blowing his horn,
Already, 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,
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
I tell you now,
They don't mean a thing

Every place I go, I think of you
Every song I'll sing, I'll sing for you
When I come back,
I'll bring 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,
Don't know when I'll be back again,
Oh babe, I hate to go.

Now the time has come to leave you
One more time, let me kiss you
And close your eyes,
I'll be on my way

And dream about the days to come
When I won't have to leave alone
About the times I won't have to say

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