That old train went a-rolling down the track
On the northern city railway
The suits up front and a cafe in the back
As I recall it was the month of May

New York City, 90 miles on down the line
Passing cars out on the freeway
Fastest engine that the line had ever seen
But Frankford Junction’s from the steam days

Slow your roll and watch your speed in the needle’s eye
‘Cause we’re on that fast train we don't get another try
And we're gonna learn about that turn when we reach the other side

No one knows why it rolled right of the tracks
Just a couple of miles from the station
The politicians just wouldn’t spend the cash
Is what they said in the investigation

The birds were singing when we climbed out of the wreck
But things got twisted down the railbed
For a little while of all your life's on the right track
But then the world’s got other plans instead
