back in my town, i worked on a shipyard
the people would dance all night
oh! catching that train was so hard
my clock says she's always right

and maybe if you didn't try so hard to please
by then they'll know the name of your disease
oh! I never started running
but can't you hear the cavalry coming?


back when we played songs in the backyard
we were just joints and tambourines
i never thought swimming was that hard.
that's cause i was a submarine.

and they'll bring you to your knees
leave you without a name for your disease
i never really thought it was that funny
then again, i never heard the cavalry coming
