"Subway Train" as written by and Alain Gordon Whyte Steven Morrissey....
We love them
We mourn for them
Unlucky boys of red

I wish I'd gone down
Gone down with them
To where mother nature makes their bed

We miss them
Every night we kiss them
Their faces fixed in our heads

I wish I'd gone down
Gone down with them
To where mother nature makes their bed

They can't hurt you
Their style will never desert you
Because they're all safely dead

I wish I'd gone down
Gone down with them

    General CommentAye and it's a "New York Dolls" cover. And to be honest (sorry Dolls), Morrissey scraped the rough parts off and made it a polished jewel :)

    General CommentA little over three minutes, this served as the intro to Munich Air Disaster 1958 on the Live At Earls Court (12/2004) album.
