The Train

This song is by The Roches and appears on the album The Roches (1979).

Original video
I sit down on the train
With my big pocketbook, the guitar
And a sugar-free drink
I wipe the sweat off of my brow
With the side of my arm

And take off all that I can
I am trying not to have a bad day
Now everybody knows the way that is

Even though my baggage and I are using up
A two person seat
I'm not trying to be funny
But the guy who sits down next to me

Is even bigger than that
We are overflowing out of the seat
And I can't look at him
He doesn't look at me

Once you step on, you might never get off
Of the commuter train
It doesn't go very far away
But just the same
It's a trip and a half

My face is pressed up against the window
And through it I can see
The reflection of the train
I spy on the big guy sitting next to me

He's drinking two beers
And reading the New York Post
Trying not to get in my way
Now everybody knows the kind of day that is

He is miserable and I am miserable
We are miserable
Can't we have a party? Would he rather have a party?
After all we have to sit here
And he's even drinking a beer
I want to ask him what's his name

But I can't 'cause I'm so afraid
Of the man on the train

Once you step on, you might never get off
Of the commuter train
It doesn't go very far away
But just the same
It's a trip and a half

Get us off the train
Get us off the train
