Down, down they pause and walk away
Even in the streets your feet don't move
See their faces through the perspex
Turn to stare back up at you

You, your eyes are green and mine are blue
In the subway darkness I am watching you
Oh my-my, you are so sci-fi,
Please will you let me ride?

Johnny, riding on the monorail
Johnny, riding on the monorail
Johnny, riding on the monorail
Monorail

You, you know that life is terminal,
It's the Paris pullman in your mind again
Eyes like cameras move their lenses
Take this dream I offer you

Johnny, riding on the monorail
Johnny, riding on the monorail
Johnny, riding on the monorail

All we cannot see we call invisible
Tracks that move on pylons through the sky
Oh my, my you are so sci-fi
Please will you let me ride

Johnny riding on the monorail
Johnny riding on the monorail
Johnny riding on the monorail

Ah!... a... a... a... a... a...

Johnny on the monorail
Johnny on the monorail
Johnny on the monorail

Johnny on the monorail
(Johnny Reslo)
(Johnny Reslo)
(Johnny Reslo)
(Johnny Reslo)
Johnny on the monorail
(Johnny Reslo)
(Johnny Reslo)
(Johnny Reslo)
(Johnny Reslo)
Johnny on the monorail
