"Hello Hopeville" as written by and Michelle Shocked....
Down at the Cold War Institute
They were signing new recruits
He went down to the station in his three piece suit
Now she had cried for him to stay
But there was nothing more to say
As she was waving a white kerchief as the train pulled away
Singing bye, bye baby boy I hope they treat you well, well, well

It was another situation as the train left the station
It was hello Hopeville I need a vacation
Now the world's been cruel
This time she really let me down
I thought I'd go back to school
Yeak, try to clean up this town
And now it's hello Hopeville
I know you're gonna treat me well, well, well
Well, well, well
Get gone!

Well, well, well, looky here, looky here
Well, well, well, what have we got here
Got me a runaway kid
Got no money never did
Got the sense to come in out of the rain
Uh, he was waitin' for a station just like some people wait for a train
And I'm singing bye, bye baby boy I hope they treat you well, well, well
Well, well, well
Well, well, well
Well, well, well
