so if you travelled on a steam train in UK back in the 50s and 60s I want you to remember the rhythm. doodle e dum, doodle e dum for miles and miles. for us it was 'we're gonna see gran, we're gonna see gran' as we traveled from Liverpool to Bradford.
so hold the rhythmn doodle e dum
Give me Booze - Quick
We’re on the train Going insane The kids are a pain It’s started to rain
Passengers here Are sitting too near Shout in my ear I’ve run out of cheer
Here comes the trolley where is my lolly I must by some Bolly To make me feel jolly
The engine went hoot The kids are so cute It’s amazing a flute Of champagne cures all ills.
I hate steam trains, I stamp my foot At getting covered up in soot Like Dick Van Dyke, brushless but Black as night from nose to gut I will not mention accents but Steam trains sound Scottish, such A bigoted observation, too much Thought about locomotion, put Me in the last carriage if you must Where I can escape most of the coal dust I’ll be quiet, you can trust Me not to do more that just Frown a bit and maybe tut As the wheels go clickety, clackety, cluck
