(Hopwood/Leckenby/Silverman)

Speed this locomotive on the railroad line
And tell the driver man that I ain't got much time
There's a little lady waitin' down the track
I'm on my way to meet her and I'm not turning back
So hurry on mister, I just learned
My reservation's been confirmed
I ain't go no sleeping car or paid first rate
I'm picking at a chicken in the third class rate
Don't misunderstand me 'cause I paid my fair

So hurry on mister, I just learned
My reservation's been confirmed
Speed on, speed on, speed on, speed on,
Hey, hurry on mister, I just learned
My reservation's been confirmed
Don't send back no stations
I don't need no beer
And pass on my instructions to the engineer
No more interruptions till I reach Lucille
Just get this engine moving
Don't you let it de-rail
So hurry on mister, I just learned
My reservation's been confirmed
Speed on, speed on, speed on, speed on
Hey, hurry on mister, I just learned
My reservation's been confirmed
