Red Eye Express   (John Sebastian)

Hurry up Lorey, hurry up, Sue
We can't hardly wait for you
Starving for your love, it's true
The Red Eye Express will be leaving soon

If you don't want to see country
and you got to get from East to West
Get yourself a ticket on the late night flight
That's the one all the boys in the band like best

The Red Eye Express gonna carry me back to my home
Cause I'm in a mess, Mama
Tryin'to get a wink of sleep alone
I'm cryin'

Runnin'like a chicken with your head cut off
Tryin'to make it to the last flight out
Don't you start freakin', it's the captain speaking
So don't start smokin'till the light goes out

Hurry up Lorey, hurry up, Sue
We can't hardly wait for you
Starving for your love, it's true
The Red Eye Express will be leaving soon

The Red Eye Express gonna carry me back to my home
Cause I'm in a mess, Mama
Tryin'to get a wink of sleep alone
I'm cryin'

Gonna be back home before too long
I'm flyin'
I'm flyin'
