In the beginning I had nothing to do
I was all alone in a big empty room
So I decided to build myself an electric train
It took six days time, things were never the same

Monday (monday) I built the track
It looked straight but it came right back
'Cause it curved so slow if you leave from here
You go far as you can go and you'll be back in a year

Monday, tuesday, line the railway
Wednesday, thursday, make it straight
Friday, saturday, watch out that day
Saturday could be a big mistake
Monday, tuesday, line the railway
Wednesday, thursday, make it straight
Friday, saturday, watch out for saturday
That day could be a big mistake

Friday (friday) I took my train
I shined it, I greased it, I shined it again
I set the groove of the wheels on the rail
But it only moved when I pushed it myself
So by saturday evening I wasn't alone
'Cause I took it and gave it a mind of it's own
It'd grease it's own wheels, it'd make it's own way
I said to myself
"this train is gonna run 'til the judgment day."

Monday, tuesday, line the railway
Wednesday, thursday, make it straight
Friday, saturday, watch out that day
Saturday could be a big mistake
Monday, tuesday, line the railway
Wednesday, thursday, make it straight
Friday, saturday, watch out for saturday
That day could be a big mistake

Sunday was my day of the rest, I sat back and watched it go
It went backwards and forwards, it went too fast
It heated up the track 'til it started to glow
And pretty soon the rails were fried
My electric train jumped the track
And there it was, it lay on it's side
All twisted and burnt black (black, black)

Monday, tuesday, line the railway
Wednesday, thursday, you gotta make it straight
Friday, saturday, next time for saturday
That day was a big mistake (that was a big mistake)
Monday, tuesday, line the railway
Wednesday, thursday, you gotta make it straight
Friday, saturday, next time for saturday
That day was a big mistake (that was a big mistake)
I'll make it again, I've worked out the kinks
You can't win with a train that thinks
Monday, tuesday, line the railway
Wednesday, thursday, you gotta make it straight [fade]
