"Waitin' On A Train" as written by and Beck Hansen....
I'm an alien from another sphere.
The thing I like about the earth is the range of colors.
Fantastic to mundane. Brilliant to dull.
As I was penetrating the ozone,
I perchanced to notice the orange peel-like
Quality of the light playing upon the, the ocean.
I gotta go right now
Someone is videotaping me in my spaceship.

All around a water tank
Just a-waitin' for a train
A thousand miles away from home
Just a-waitin' for'n the rain
I walked up to a break-man
Just to give him a line of talk
He said, "If you got money,
I'll see that you don't walk"
"I haven't got a nickel
Not a penny for to show."
"Get off, get off, you railroad bum!"
And he slammed the boxcar door
They let me off in Texas
A state I dearly love
The moon, the stars above me and what else?

    General CommentThe start's so bizarre... And I hear the song is actually sung by a hobo that Beck talked to some. Poor hobo?
