Hey Mr. Songwriter
Write a song today
Sing to my baby
Who's going away

She's Leaving on the evening plane
To where I don't know
Give me a song so sad
That she won't want to go

Now I am the songwriter
And I heard what you said
I'm going to write a song for you
Although her love is dead

I know just how you feel
And still I've gotta say
That if it doesn't make her stop
Then I'll just turn away

I write the words
To make her cry
And make her sigh
The melody
To make her see
Tomorrow
But tomorrow she'll be gone

Hey Mr. Songwriter
Tell me what to do
She's gone away and left me now
For somebody new

I thought that I could change her mind
But maybe I was wrong
Hurry up and wet your pen
Please sir don't be long

I write the words
Make her cry
And make her sigh
The melody
To make her see
Tomorrow
But tomorrow was too late

Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah
