Caught me a redeye back to the city
My babe sent me a message looking so pretty
Had to get home to see my girl
Landed in Elmhurst early that morning
Feelin’ as wound up as a bed spring
Had to get home to see my girl

I’m comin’ home...

I’ve been gone for too long
Ninety-nine and one half days away from home
But then I saw her face and knew I had to race
Home to see my girl

Well I went to her work
No one knew where she was at
Only gal at our place
Was my favorite tabby cat
Didn’t know where to find my girl

I’m coming home…

Finally found her sitting in our favorite bar
Was just about to walk up and say
Well, there you are
But then she made an eye
At some other guy
When she cooed his name
His and mine were about the same
Knew then that message wasn’t meant for me

I’m leaving home…

Was feeling as run down as a late night cabby
So I caught me a redeye but first I grabbed my tabby
Left my girl with her guy
