Alfred Beach worked secretly
Risking all to ride a dream
New York City and the morning sun
Were awoken by the strangest sound
Reportedly as far as Washington
The tremors shook the earth as Alfie
He blew underground, yeah
All aboard sub-rosa subway
Had you wondered who's been digging under Broadway?
Poor Al, woh no Al
As for America's first subway
The public scoffed, "It's far too rude"
One station filled with Victoria's age
From frescoed walls and goldfish fountains....
To Brahmsian tunes
