Here I am at the end of the day with a cup of cold coffee from the station buffet. On trains, on trains I seem to spend my life on trains. See the blue suit banker in the ticket line. Got an Evening Standard with Playboy hidden behind. On trains, on trains he seems to spend his life on trains.
Time after time. Was I just dreaming? Did I help you aboard? Full passenger service --- let me help with the door. Sit down take the weight off your feet. There's a train full of people I'd like you to meet. On trains, on trains we love to spend our lives on trains.
Join the secret world of trains. Feel the pleasure. Touch the pain. Drift into yesterday.
Once and again I was just thinking. We could meet sometime on the 17.30 where I usually find my friends at the end of the day. May we pay your fare, lady? We should like you to stay in our train. On trains --- you'll have to spend your life on trains.
I hear there's an office party on the 18.05. You'll be home for Christmas if they take you alive from the train. Those trains, we have to spend our lives on trains.
Once and again I was just thinking. We could meet any time on number two platform where I usually find my friends at the end of the day. On trains, trains, trains.
