Lyrics: Answers ( ) to be sung only when used as a duet. First verse On my knee hear my plea Give me just one word of thee. Don't go ‘way if you stay Goodness knows how good I'll be Let me hear one word dear ‘Cause it's music to my ear Say you'll never never leave me But the answer came back clear. Chorus I'm goin' to go (oh please don't go) here comes my train (oh what a shame) you'll never more (I love you so) see me again (I'll go insane) Don't hold me back (here on my knee) don't ask me why (oh hear my plea) ""Cause I've said my last farewell (toot-toot) good bye. I'm goin' to bye. Second verse I've been kind but I find True the saying love is blind. ‘Taint no use that excuse Won't begin to change my mind Rent I'll pay you can stay Right here till the first of May. Got my ticket train is waiting Soon I will be far away. (Chorus)
