“Intro/Last Train to Clarksville” Lyrics

Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome to the stage Micky, Davy, and Peter: The Monkees!

[“(Theme From) The Monkees” plays]

Take the last train to Clarksville
And I’ll meet you at the station
You can be here by four-thirty
’Cause I’ve made your reservation
Don’t be slow
Oh, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no

’Cause I’m leaving in the morning
And I must see you again
We’ll have one more night together
’Til the morning brings my train
And I must go
Oh, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no
And I don’t know if I’m ever comin’ home

Take the last train to Clarksville
And I’ll meet you at the station
We’ll have time for coffee-flavored kisses
And a bit of conversation, oh
Oh, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no

[break (di di di)]

Take the last train to Clarksville
Now I must hang up the phone
I can’t hear you in this
Noisy railroad station all alone
I’m feelin’ low
Oh, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no
And I don’t know if I’m ever comin’ home
Ah

[break]

Take the last train to Clarksville
And I’ll meet you at the station
You can be here by four-thirty
’Cause I’ve made your reservation
Don’t be slow
Oh, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no
And I don’t know if I’m ever comin’ home

Take the last train to Clarksville
Take the last train to Clarksville
Take the last train to Clarksville
The last train to Clarksville
The last train, last train, last train
Take the last train
