Hey Mister Taximan,
Get me to the station.
Get me there as fast as you can.
My baby needs an explanation —
She’s leavin’ on the early train.
I was supposed to be there.
I stayed up late writin’ refrains.
She’s got to know I care.

I need to hold her... kiss her, make it a sweet goodbye.
She needs my lovin’... turtledovin’, let her know I'm her guy.
Tell her that I’ll miss her a lot... Oo0h... I can’t resist her.
And kiss the tears... from her eyes.

Hey Mister Taximan,
Pull over at the florist —
This is where it all began.
I need another bunch of orchids.
She’s leavin’ on the mornin’ train.
I was supposed to be there.
I stayed awake watchin’ the rain.
She’s got to know I care.

Hey Mister Taximan,
I think I hear her callin’ —
Callin’, yes, callin’ for love.
Oooh, I think I'm fallin’.
She’s leavin’ on the early’ train.
I was supposed to be there.
Been thinkin’ bout my ‘Sugarcane.’
She’s got to know I care.

Hey Mister Taximan,
Please move into the fast lane.
I’ve got to see my baby again.
She’s got to know how much,
How much I care... how much I care.
She’s got to know... just how much... how much I care.
