lyrics

Gladys and the seeds of some citrus fruits were getting pretty tight
On the Southern rail, in the middle of the night
The Naenaes took a single to long on and the train to Robbie’s shout
Morrissey and Marr and Tony T thought they had it figured out

But I’d like to hear a song about trains that doesn’t sound like a train
It might wobble wobble like a jelly dish
It might seem like an accident
I’d like to hear a song about trains that doesn’t sound like a train
I can’t hear anything, can’t hear anyone, can’t hear you
I can’t hear!

Eat a greasy meal, eat a greasy meal
Guts turning round, they’re turning round, they’re turning round
Eat a greasy meal, eat a greasy meal
Guts turning round, they’re turning round, they’re turning round


The Greek woman on return from Greece, looking into the abyss
Was on the trail of Stevenson’s Rocket … conducting business
She enjoyed a cumber of the cu-ish kind, tomatoes made her fuss
But I would have to say they didn’t sound so good to us

And we’d like to hear a song…

I’d like to hear a song about trains
I’d like to feel more intralinear tension
Resulting from using only articles:
The … an … a
The … an … a-a-a-a-aaa
The … an … a
The … an … aaa

Rolling down the gorge on the Taieri Express
Feeling fairly frail and we’re wanting to be fed
Hash brown, get it down!
Hot dogs and cheese rolls
Mac and cheese, yes, please!
Bacon and rissoles
Rory and Phil didn’t claim their pies
They’re not very attentive guys
They’re not uplifting gourmandisers
They’re not like you and me
The … an … a
The … an … a-a-a-a-aaa
The … an … a
The … an … aaa
