LYRICS:
Gimmie a ticket for an aeroplane
Ain't got time to take a fast train
Lonely days are gone, I'm a goin' home
My baby has just wrote me a letter

I don't get care how much money I gotta spend
Got to get back to my baby again
Lonely days are gone, I'm a goin' home
My baby has just wrote me a letter

Well, she wrote me a letter said she couldn't live without me no mo'
Listen Mister, can't you see I got to get back to my baby once mo'
Anyway, yeah

Give me a ticket for an aeroplane
Ain't got time to take a fast train
Lonely days are gone, I'm a goin' home
My baby has just wrote me a letter

Well, she wrote me a letter said she couldn't live without me no mo'
Listen Mister, can't you see I got to get back to my baby once mo'
Anyway, yeah

Give me a ticket for an aeroplane
Ain't got time to take a fast train
Lonely days are gone, I'm a goin' home
My baby has just wrote me a letter
My baby has just wrote me a letter
