"Take the Train" as written by and Billy Strayhorn....
You can't have it all

Well you can do a lot of damage
Or you can try and do a bit of good
Every morning
You're walking through the hallway
Every day
Into another hallway
You could be working
Earn some pay
You should be
You should be
You could be
Walking away

Or maybe you can find an airline (yes, you might)
They can put you on a one-way flight (yes, that's right)
You can fly
Can fly right into Boston
Take the plane
And when you reach the airport
Take the train
Into maine
Where your friends will all be waiting
Just to take
You across the bay

You can't have it all

Every evening
You're crashing through the kitchen
Late at night
You're in no condition to drive
You could be (you should be)
You should be
Staying alive
