I Must Go 
    (Difford/Tilbrook)  

    WARNING: These lyrics are unconfirmed and may be inaccurate. They represent the best attempt at deciphering the song we have yet to see.  

      The flag flaps in the wind
      It looks like rain again
      And the tractor drives across a field
      The jetty's so high and then

      In Moscow it's 3:15, in New York let's see a show
      And here it's cold too cold for me
      I must go (Why must you go?)
      I must go (If you must you must)
      Why must you say goodbye when you could say hello?

      The clouds burst into storm 
      The deer run into the trees
      And the farmer drives across the field
      He looks as though he's pleased

      In Moscow it's 3:15, in New York let's see a show
      And here it's cold too cold for me
      I must go (Why must you go?)
      I must go (If you must you must)
      Why must you say goodbye when you could say hello?

      The path waits in my mind
      The circus passes me by
      And the tractor has stopped in a field
      My heart commits a crime

      In Moscow it's 3:15, in New York let's see a show
      And here it's cold too cold for me
      I must go (Why must you go?)
      I must go (If you must you must)
      Why must you say goodbye when you could say hello?
