The Who

Leaving Here

Lyrics

Hey, fellas, have you heard the news? (Oh yeah)
The women of this town are being misused (Oh yeah)
I've seen it all in my dreams last night (Oh yeah)
Girls leaving this town 'cause we don't treat 'em right (Oh yeah)

Well, I'll take a train (Take a train)
Fly by plane (Fly by plane)
They're getting tired (Getting tired)
They're sick and tired (Sick and tired)

All you fellas better change your ways (Oh yeah)
They're leaving this town in a matter of days (Oh yeah)
Girls are good, you better treat 'em true (Oh yeah)
Seen fellas run around with someone new (Oh yeah)

I'm getting tired (Getting tired)
Sick and tired (Sick and tired)
They're leaving here (Leaving here)
Are leaving here (Leaving here)

Are leaving here (Oh yeah)
Leaving here
Been a while
Oh yeah
Oh yeah
Oh yeah

The love of a woman is a wonderful thing (Oh yeah)
The way that we treat 'em is a trying shame (Oh yeah)
I'll tell you fellas, yeah, it won't be long (Oh yeah)
Before these women, they all have gone (Oh yeah)

They're getting tired (Getting tired)
Sick and tired (Sick and tired)
Yeah, take a train (Take a train)
Fly by plane (Fly by plane)

They're leaving here
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Leaving here
Leaving, leaving
oh, leaving here, now
Baby, baby, baby
Please don't leave here

Note

The Who recorded the song in the studio twice in 1965, and once for BBC Radio, but none of these recordings were released officially until the 1990s; The 1985 compilation Who's Missing and the 1998 remaster of the Odds & Sods compilation album both included the song.
