“Last Train to Clarksville” Lyrics

Peter: Hello then!
Davy: Oh, hello. How are ya?
Micky: And now, let us take you down the memory lane of music to the year 1966 and the one that started it all.

Take the last train to Clarksville
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 (Train)
’Til the morning brings my train
And I must go (Hey!)
Oh, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no
I don’t know if I’m ever coming home

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

Di-di di-di di-di di-di
Di-di di-di di-di di-di
Di-di di-di di-di di-di di

Di-di di-di di-di di-di
Di-di di-di di-di di-di
Di-di di-di di-di di-di di

Take the last train to Clarksville (Train)
I must hang up the phone
I can’t hear you in this (Train)
Noisy railroad station all alone
I’m feelin’ low (Hey!)
Oh, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no
And I don’t know if I’m ever coming home

[break]

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

Take the last train to Clarksville (Train)
Take the last train to Clarksville (Train)
Take the last train to Clarksville (Train)
Take the last train to Clarksville (Train)

Micky: No! No! Can’t hear it at all! Can’t hear it at all! Thank you very much, ladies and gentlemen, it’s wonderful to be here tonight [???] song.
Peter: Michael…
Davy: Hello everybody!
Peter: …Michael has a new guitar, which he doesn’t understand yet.
Micky: Okay!
