A man and a train, a train and a man
They both tried to run as far
And as fast as they can
But a man's not a train and a train's not a man
A man can do things that a train never can

Goin' up a mountain even half way to the top
The minute that a train runs out of steam it's gotta stop
But it's a different story when a man runs out of steam
He still can go a long, long way
On nothin' but a dream

Goin' cross the country when a train runs out of track
It has to stop and turn around and then start headin' back
But many miles from nowhere out where all the tracks are gone
A man who's got himself a dream
Can still keep goin' on

So don't try to stop me
Don't try to stop me cause nobody can
I've got a dream, a beautiful dream and that makes me a man
No don't try to stop me
Don't try to stop me cause nobody can
I've got a dream, a beautiful dream and that makes me
Makes me a man
