“Last Train to Clarksville” Lyrics

Here we come
Walkin’ down the street
We get the funniest looks from
Everyone we meet

Hey, hey, we’re The Monkees
—ey, we’re The Monkees
—ey, we’re The Monkees
—ey, we’re The Monkees
—ey, we’re The Monkees
—ey, we’re The Monkees
—ey, we’re The Monk—

Micky: Hey hey!

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 (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)
And I’ll meet you at the station
We’ll have time for coffee-flavored kisses (Train)
And a bit of conversation, oh
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
Oh, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no

And I don’t know if I’m ever coming home
Ah

(Train)
(Train)

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