Trains and Boats and Planes
Burt Bacharach and Hal David, songwriter
Trains and boats and planes are passing by,
They mean a trip to Paris or Rome
For someone else but not for me
The trains and the boats and planes
Took you away, away from me.

We were so in love,
And high above we had a star to wish upon wish
And dreams come true, but not for me
The trains and the boats and planes
Took you away, away from me.

You are from another part of the world
You had to go back home, but then
You said you would return again
I waited here like I promised to
I am waiting here but where are you

Trains and boats and planes took you away,
But every time I see them I pray
And if my pray can cross the sea,
The trains and the boats and planes
Will bring you back, back home to me

The trains and the boats and planes
Will bring you back, back home to me
