It's a slow, slow train
But it's moving on

Oh, I've got my ticket
Don't, don't pass me by
If I don't get on, ooh
I'll break right down and cry

Only got one a life to live
On this earth, oh, get me there
Won't you please
Conductor sir?

It's a slow, slow train
But it's moving on

Now everybody got a ticket
You, you and me
It's up to you to catch a ride
That's how it's got to be

Everyone, oh, yeah
Has to prove he's a man
Oh, make it easy on yourself
'Cause there's no helping hand

It's a slow, slow train
But it's moving on
It's a slow, slow train
But it's moving on
