One Way Ticket is a song performed byNeil Sedaka, written byJack KellerandHank Hunter.

She was originally included in the B-side of 1959 singles Oh! Carol of Sedaka. In 1961, the song was selected in the list of titles of his third studio album, Neil Sedaka Little Devil Sings and His Other Hits , but was never released as a stand-alone single. Despite this, she came in first place on the Japanese pop charts.
