    Lyrics

    Train I ride don't be slow
    If your whistle can blow
    Fifteen miles down the track
    Tell them I'm coming back
    Counting poles counting sheep
    Don't be slow I won't weep
    If your wheels on the line
    Were to put me on time

    Just a year to the day
    Since I went upon my way
    To seek my fortune and fame
    Be a star change my name
    And that's it more or less
    Til this midnight express
    I know I can't be late
    Cause she said she won't wait
    She'll just go marry Jack
    So there's no turning back
    And it's 25 to midnight and fifteen miles of track

    Band I had got a break
    Just one chance we had to take
    Told my girl I'd be back
    Left her with my friend Jack
    New York City for a spell
    Things didn't turn out so well
    Every dive that we played
    We were lucky we got paid

    Mr Train driver please
    If your speed you increase
    Every cent I have now
    Will be yours this I vow
    And that's it more or less
    Til this midnight express
    I know I can't be late
    Cause she said she won't wait
    She'll just go marry Jack
    So there's no turning back
    And it's 25 to midnight and fifteen miles of track

    We called ourselves the Latino Lovers
    Hawaiian shirts and top forty covers
    I didn't think I could sink this low
    When drugs and booze ate all my dough
    This isn't how it was meant to be
    There's no such thing as a meal that's free
    If I was ever to get out alive
    I have to get home on time

    Train I ride don't be slow
    If your whistle can blow
    Fifteen miles down the track
    Tell them I'm coming back
    And that's it more or less
    Til this midnight express
    I know I can't be late
    Cause she said she won't wait
    She'll just go marry Jack
    So there's no turning back
    And it's 25 to midnight and fifteen miles of track
    And it's 25 to midnight and fifteen miles of track
