David Lee Roth – Big Train lyrics

My train your station
Full speed across the nation
You'll be brownin' your Bermudas
When I blow this tomb with a view, yeah, all right
Third rail can't stand it
Santa Fe to the mid-Atlantic
I got a steel-wheeled radial
Prophylactic for you...
And I ain't afraid to use it now!
It takes up all your time
Being leader of the pack
Just when you get
That rat race licked
Well here come faster rats!

Big train
Are you an engineer?
Big train
Or a passanger,
Big train
Whatever gets
You to the top of the hill
You're on a Big train
Strapped to the front of a
Big train
Double stack thunder
Big train
And you're runnin'
Just in front of the wheels

I've known fast livin' and I know wine, women
And songs become a long locomotive for me
That train be rollin' not me, I'm going before wine and
Women turn into beer, the old lady and tv
All you ever wanted was to tap dance, run away
Sometimes you win sometimes you lose
Sometimes it rains right on your...

Big train time gets movin'
Big train when ya' don't know what you're doin'
Big train and you're wonderin' if you ever will
Big train aw honey are with me
Big train or is the rain doin sixty
Big train maybe you're standing still
Big train gets movin'
Big train Don't know what you're doin'
Big train and you're wonderin' if you ever will
Big train honey are with me
Big train or is the train doin sixty, baby

Maybe you're standing still
Always another train pulling into
That station: and I'll be smilin' again
Can't help it that's the kind of guy I am
Awe reap!
