    Lyrics

    When I was crowned a mummy¹s boy
    by friends I didn¹t like
    I made a meal of trips to school
    upon my fathers bike
    and I used to sit between his legs,
    perched on a piece of wood
    and if it ever rained on us
    I slipped beneath his hood,
    at home the radio was on
    Œwall papered all those years,
    the world was such a simple place
    with music to my ears.

    From Julie Andrews
    to Gerry Garcia
    life was all fun and games
    I was out of my head,
    and underneath my bed
    playing with electric trains.

    I met my friends at Sunday school
    and playing on the field,
    inside my bedroom there I found
    the future was concealed
    my records stacked up in a pile,
    collected from the chart
    with pictures pinned up on the wall
    I found my beating heart,
    and at home the stereo was on
    my feet stomped the floor,
    a Fender willow cricket bat
    had left me wanting more.

    From Julie Andrews
    to Gerry Garcia
    life was all fun and games
    I was out of my head,
    and underneath my bed
    playing with electric trains.

    Kneeling with my torch light
    turning my transformer
    sleeping in my wet dreams
    with my eyeballs stuck in readers wife¹s,
    pubic hairs were proudly
    counted everyday I woke
    manhood took me slowly
    down and down and down......

    I chased the girls and made them cry
    my hair grew down my back
    the contents of my teenage years
    were spent down in the sack
    and I played guitar and formed a band,
    I pewked up all night long
    as people came to sit and stare
    while I raced through my song,
    at home there was sadly nothing on
    my childhood had to end,
    the Sound of Music passed me by
    just like the Grateful Dead.

    From Julie Andrews
    to Gerry Garcia
    life was all fun and games
    I was out of my head,
    and underneath my bed
    playing with electric trains.

    From Julie Andrews
    to Gerry Garcia
    climbing in that photograph
    I can touch my stupid face
    I chose the road to here and now
    and this very special place
    where all I am is all I breath
    its a sober world I chase
    so I can fix these broken tracks,
    playing with electric trains.
