New York Dolls – Subway Train lyrics

I can't ever
Understand
Why my lifes, been
Cursed poisen,
Condemned
When I been tryin every night
To hold ya near me
But I'm tellin you
It aint easy

Ever since I been
Ridin, right on the
Subway Train
You can hear the whistle blowin
Wa might think I'm goin insane

And now your friends
They're fillin up my car
But your so busy readin Suzy says
Ya can't look now
You didn't see your lovers
There all just in rags
Ya know ya hid as pushin up posies
Tryin get ya fed

We was all
Ridin, right on the
Subway Train
And you can hear the captain shoutin
He thinks I've gone insane

Cus I keep
Ridin, keep on
Ridin, cus I keep on
Ridin ridin ridin, keep on
Ridin, yeah

You stop and you stare,
As I'm lieavin my favorite place
We have no regards
Ya can't find a trace
Ya gotta get on back to daddy
That's all it's gonna be
He got the poison black arts of the pimps
But don't ya st- st-

I seen em travelin
Right on the
Subway Train
Ya can hear th captain shou-ow-tin
He thinks weve all gone insane

Cus we keep on
Ridin ridin ridin
Ridin, cus we keep
Ridin ridin ridin
Keep on ridin

I think a see the train
I see ya got open track
I'm hopin
One of those gonna bring my baby back

(Cus I guess I said)
Dinah wontcha blow
Dinah wontcha blow your horn
Dinah wontcha blow
Dinah wontcha blow your horn
Someones in the kitchen with Dinah
I know whoa whoa whoa
I said someones in th kitchen with Dinah
I know

I keep on
Ridin ridin ridin

Puss 'n' Boots

And now you're walkin'
Just like you're ten feet tall
Go ahead

Lickity split
Better move quick
Better not slip
Better get hip
I don't think it fits
Lookin' for a hoot
I'm gonna shout,
Where'd you get those boots!

Just like Puss 'n' Boots
I hope you don't get shot for tryin'
Oh baby, shot for tryin'

Oh little rhinestone target
Has to change his name
Cause all the boys and girls
Think that you're too easy game
Don't you know the shoes
Is makin' him lame
Shut him up boss
Keep the change

Just like Puss 'n' Boots
I hope you don't get shot for tryin'
Get shot for tryin' Shot for tryin'

There's just one thing
That I'm trying to say
Sometimes you got to get away some place

And now you're walkin'
Just like you're ten feet tall
Oh, Boy girl that's just all

Just like Puss 'n' Boots
I hope you don't get shot for tryin'
Baby shot for tryin'

If all you wanna do is save your face
And what you gonna do after this place
I'm screamin' help help help
Full of grace, now what I say

Little rhinestone target
Has to change his name
All the boys and girls
Think he's too easy game
Don't you know the boots
Are makin' him lame
I'm screamin' shut him up boss
Keep the change

Just like Puss 'n' Boots
I hope you don't get shot for tryin'
Baby shot for tryin'

Well this is one thing that I'm tryin' to say
Sometimes you got to get away some way
Until you're walkin' just like you're ten foot tall
Boy girl that should be all
Just like you're ten foot tall
I sure hope you don't fall oh,
When you're ten foot tall
Go ahead now

Making that split
Better move quick
Better not slip
Better get hip
I done plead the fifth
Going for a hoot
I thought I'd shout
Hey where did you get those boots

Just like Puss 'n' Boots
I hope you don't get shot!
