    12 years old in Amsterdam in 1939
    A blue-eyed boy, my clean complexion always got me by
    A boy with real potential, sold secrets by the score
    Where refugees were hiding I'd just point out the doors

    In the golden age of steam I learned those German songs
    I had to stay alive, there was no right or wrong
    In the golden age of steam

    The fatherland was rising the world would hear the roar
    Both sides fed and trusted me in 1944
    Trains ran on time those days oiling the machine
    Smoke rose up like serpents, I was barely seventeen
    In the golden age of steam

    It's over now but not somehow
    I was a hero then to many men
    Switzerland was a short ride for an eager blond haired boy
    With a silver smile and loaded with jewelery to enjoy
    Maybe one day they'll come for me they'll take me from my bed
    A soldier of fortune that's what my passport read
    In the golden age of steam
