All this time spent working on the railroad,
Should be time spent with you.

Little Tommy can’t move the heavens,
And a desert can’t fill the earth,
And he’s at sixes and sevens,
And has been so since birth.
There’s a green cart in the yard,
Collecting for some half-assed scheme,
They tell us times are hard,
It’s such a shame it’s just routine,

Let’s have a drink on it,
Don’t even think on it,
Earth calling Andrew Carstairs
We all want Andrew Carstairs.
Not much to shell on it,
No time to dwell on it,
Earth calling Andrew Carstairs
We all want Andrew Carstairs.

All this time spent working on the railroad,
Should be time spent with you.

Big Jimmy wants to Rock ‘n’ Roll,
And say yes to Louise,
There’s not much between diamond and coal,
It’s so easy for him to please.
And fun times are always dining,
For a fate they set in stone,
It’s a case of awful timing,
But the monk’s now all alone.

Let’s have a drink on it,
Don’t even think on it,
Earth calling Andrew Carstairs
We all want Andrew Carstairs.
Not much to shell on it,
No time to dwell on it,
Earth calling Andrew Carstairs
We all want Andrew Carstairs.

All this time spent working on the railroad,
Should be time spent with you.
And this railroad isn’t going nowhere,
What am I supposed to do?

Let’s have a drink on it,
Don’t even think on it,
Earth calling Andrew Carstairs
We all want Andrew Carstairs.
Not much to shell on it,
No time to dwell on it,
Earth calling Andrew Carstairs
We all want Andrew Carstairs.
We forgot to drink on it,
We didn’t think on it,
Earth calling Andrew Carstairs
We all want Andrew Carstairs.
What you gonna sell with it?
Ah, to hell with it,
Earth calling Andrew Carstairs
We all want Andrew Carstairs.

All this time spent working on the railroad,
Should be time spent with you.
