"Locomotive" as written by Michael Burston, Philip Campbell, Peter Gill and Ian Kilmister....
You know I'm rollin' know I'm coming through
Hear me howlin', catchin' up on you
Station to station, beating up the track
Check on your time, 'cos I ain't never coming back.

You know I'm loaded, railroaded
I'm explosive, I'm a locomotive

I'm your engineer, looping up the curve
Stoke up your fire babe, burning up your nerve
You know the story, know that I can't fail
Power and glory, burning up the rails

You know I'm loaded, railroaded
I'm explosive, I'm a locomotive

Roll you all night babe, drive you round the bend
Broke down engine fired up again
Ain't got no brakeman, got no mail to drop
Rollin' forever, never gonna stop

You know I'm loaded, railroaded
I'm explosive, I'm a locomotive

    General CommentAwsome and very underated song from lemmy & co.
    Starts off with a blistering Drum pounding session then the intensity goes up to 11 and beyond.. it just doesn't let up from start to finish, A pure wall of sound that goes through ya like a tomato hitting a tennis racket. One of their best.
