Cause I’m leaving, on a jet plane….

Keeping in theme with my last article, I can recall a song from about 20 years ago in Hawaii.  It was a cover song, sang by local artist “Justin.”  It was originally recorded by folk singer John Denver.  The title of the song was “Leaving on a Jet Plane.”

 

 

 

Justin – Leaving on a Jet Plane

It was a hit in Hawaii, because of its familiarity with people and the singer was representing Hawaii.  Here are the lyrics to the song:

00001025

“Leaving on a Jet Plane”

performed by Justin

(Spoken:)
This is a final boarding call for Hawaiian Airlines Flight 705
With non-stop service to Los Angeles
All confirmed passengers should be on board at this time. Mahalo!

(Lyrics:)

All my bags are packed I’m ready to go
I’m standin’ here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
But the dawn is breakin’ it’s early morn
The taxi’s waitin’ he’s blowin’ his horn
Already I’m so lonesome I could die

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
Hold me like you’ll never let me go
I’m leavin’ on a jet plane
Don’t know when I’ll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go
Hate to go

There’s so many times I’ve let you down
So many times I’ve played around
But now you know they don’t mean a thing
Every place I go, I’ll think of you
Every song I sing, I’ll sing for you
When I come back, I’ll wear your wedding ring

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
Hold me like you’ll never let me go
‘Cause I’m leavin’ on a jet plane
Don’t know when I’ll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go
I hate to go

Now the time has come to leave you
One more time, oh let me kiss you
Close your eyes and I’ll be, on my way
Dream about the days to come
When I won’t have to leave alone
About the times when I won’t have to say

Oh kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
Hold me like you’ll never let me go
‘Cause I’m leavin’ on a jet plane
Don’t know when I’ll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

‘Cause I’m leavin’ on a jet plane
Don’t know when I’ll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

I’m leaving on a jet plane (I’m leaving on a jet plane)
I’m leaving on a jet plane
I’m leaving on a jet plane (I’m leaving on a jet plane)
I hate to go

I’m leaving on a jet plane (I’m leaving on a jet plane)
I’m leaving on a jet plane
I’m leaving on a jet plane (I’m leaving on a jet plane)
I hate to go

I’m leaving on a jet plane (I’m leaving on a jet plane)
I’m leaving on a jet plane
I’m leaving on a jet plane (I’m leaving on a jet plane)
I hate to go

I’m leaving on a jet plane (I’m leaving on a jet plane)
I’m leaving on a jet plane
