"Leaving Here" as written by Edward Holland, Lamont Herbert Dozier and Brian Holland....
Hey, fellas, have you heard the news,
Yeah, the women in this town have been misused,
Yeah, I seen it all in my dreams last night,
Girls leaving this town 'cause you don't treat 'em right.
Oh, take a train (take a train), fly by plane (fly by plane),
Yeah, gettin' tired (gettin' tired), sick and tired (sick and tired).

All you fellas better change your ways,
Yeah, leaving this town in a matter of days,
Girls are good, you better treat 'em true,
I seen fellas running around with someone new.

Gettin' tired (gettin' tired), sick and tired (sick and tired),
Yeah, leavin' here (leavin' here), leavin' here (leavin' here),
I said leavin' here, yeah yeah yeah, don't want to leave all here,
Be a while, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah.

The love of a women is a wonderful thing (oh yeah),
Yeah, the way you treat 'em is a crying shame (oh yeah),
I tell you, fella, yeah, it won't be long (oh yeah),
Yeah, before these women they all have gone (oh yeah).

Yeah, gettin' tired (gettin' tired), sick and tired (sick and tired),
Yeah, take a train (take a train), fly by plane (fly by plane),
Yeah, gonna leavin' here, yeah leavin' here,
Yeah, leavin' here, ya gonna leave all here now,
Baby baby baby, please don't leave here.

    General CommentI never really liked this song until i heard it live at state college during the last tour and it kicked. Its a great song and they perform it with so much energy, listen to it live and you'll love it. The message is clear too.

    General CommentThis song really rocks! personally, I liked the original Who version better (it is The Who, after all...), but PJ do a good job at it too...

    General CommentGreat cover. It's an old R&B song that the Who covered, and PJ covered the Who's interpretation.

    Oh, and Pearl Jam is the greatest band ever :3
