Can you hear that whistle
Loud clackety-clack
Well it's calling to me
The station is where it's at
It's coming again now
Chuggin' down that track
Just check your records
Got all my bags packed

You'll always find me waiting for that train to come through
Come get me, take me, to the land where my dreams come true
You'll always find me waiting for that train to come through
Come get me, take me, to the land where my dreams come true

This time I'll board that train
It won't be long
Check the label on my baggage
Destination in my song
Talk to the conductor
Ooh I save my fare
Yakety-yak for a while
CHOO CHOO!
CHOO CHOO!

You'll always find me waiting for that train to come through
Come get me, take me, to the land where my dreams come true
You'll always find me waiting for that train to come
Come get me, come take me
You'll always find me waiting for that train to come through
I said come get me, take me, to the land where your dreams come true I said
I'm waiting, I'm waiting
Come get me, come take me to the land where my dreams come
Smokestack train is back
That smash attack

Hurry grab my luggage
Hurry grab my bags
It seems the locomotive
Has taken another track
A penny brought by mischief
A penny form of cash
Has been brough up to the railway
We are destined to be a smash!
A smash! Woo!

You will always find me waiting for that train to come through
Come get me, take me, to the land where my dreams come true
Always find me waiting for that train to come
Come get me, come take me
You'll always find me waiting for that train to come through
Wrongful manners, tickets for two
I'm waiting for it to show
Ah na na na na na na oh woh woh woh
You'll always find me waiting for that train to come through
Come get me, come take me
You'll always find me waiting for that train to come through
I said come get me, take me, to the land where your dreams come true I said
Ah then you'll always find me, ah then you'll always find me
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh I said
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh oh oh oh oh
Ah wrongful manner na na na na na na...

    General CommentI'd say they want to get out of the small town and hit it big. (Hence the line "come abd take me where my dreams come true.") Very cool song. :cool:

    General Commenti love this song... i love this whole cd! and all of no doubts other stuff besides rock steady... but anyway! im in an acting class and we needed to bring in music to reflect our characters, and i brought this song. the girl's dad died when she was young, and she wants to be in a broadway show but her uncle won't let her audition. This song seemed perfect for her.

    General CommentThey apparently have an animated video for his song. It was only given exclusively to close friends and family. If anyone has seen it (lucky) send a link.

    General Commentyes, I also think it's about their train to fame, which eventually did take them ... I think much further than they ever wished for.
    it's such a cool song.I would definitely love to see that animated video.
