Lyrics

Last train a-running between the water With a power line Last train a-running around the hill Last train a-leaving on the quarter Hour time Last chance to cast your last thread

Thisa world is getting so much faster It’s too sad For a train a-going down slow

And I forgot to leave her, oh with the laughter It’s too bad When it's in my nature to lay low

CHORUS You got me huffing and puffing and chugging like a choo-choo train A huffing and puffing and chugging like a choo-choo train Hissing and kissing and missing like a beau coup brain Huffing and puffing and chugging like a choo-choo train

Just like the engine at the junction, feeling down My head is wondering where to go

And you’ve a got so many different trips you know My face is wondering where to show

CHORUS

HORN SOLO

Just like the engine at the junction, feeling down My head is wondering where to go

CHORUS, REPEAT, FADE
