lyrics

My Hummer was hit in a daisy chain,
Got da war-time shakes and a real bad brain.
Lonely days are long,
I'm a goin' home,
But my baby never wrote me a letter.

Well she wrote me never,
Bet she couldn't just forgive me no more.
Listen I missed her can't she help my heart from aching anymore.
Everyday.

I don't care how long it takes to mend,
Gotta get back from this hades, my friend.
Lonely days are long,
I'm a goin' home,
But my baby never wrote me a letter.

Gimme a ticket for an aeroplane.
Aint got no time to take a fast train.
Lonely days are long,
I'm a goin' home,
But my baby never wrote me a letter.

[MASH announcement]

Gimme a ticket for an aeroplane.
Ain't got time to take a fast train.
Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home,
Cuz my baby, she wrote me a letter

I don't care how much money I gotta spend.
Got to get back to my baby again.
Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home,
Cuz my baby, she wrote me a letter.

Well, she wrote me a letter
Said she couldn't live without me no more.
Listen mister, can't you see I got to get back
To my baby once-a more
Anyway, yeah!

Gimme a ticket for an aeroplane.
Ain't got time to take a fast train.
Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home
Cuz my baby, she wrote me a letter.

Well, she wrote me a letter
Said she couldn't live without me no more
Listen mister, can't you see I got to get back
To my baby once-a more.
Anyway, yeah!

Gimme a ticket for an aeroplane.
Ain't got time to take a fast train.
Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home,
Cuz my baby, she wrote me a letter,
my baby she wrote me a letter,
my baby she wrote me a letter,
