“Last Train to Clarksville” Lyrics

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
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)
I’ll meet you at the station
We’ll have time for coffee-flavored kisses (Train)
And a bit of conversation, oh (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

[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: Thank you. Guess what? My bass drum isn’t nailed down either. There’s no business like show business, there’s no business I know. All the lousy equipment that you have on stage. Heh heh heh. Ah, what? Alright, sock it to me! We all know that you… may just be the one.
