Nrbq – Like A Locomotive lyrics

Like a locomotive
Comin' down the line
Ground starts to tremble
Gonna make you mine.

So I said to the drivers
Get the coal to burn
Can start to feel the traction
Then I start to yearn.

Such a wild sensation
Seems by design
My loco imagination
Working overtime.

A Number One is the only one
To successfully ride on Number Nine
But you give your kiss to me
And I'll be the Emperor of the North
A Number One.

Just like a locomotive
Let's keep a rhythm going.

Go ahead.. [Big Al guitar solo]

Just close your eyes and we're off again.
This line won't make another stop
It's so well synchronized
It's time to take this to the top.
Now, open up your eyes.

It's like a locomotive
Let's keep a rhythm going.
Just you and me baby
Let's take this rhythm home
Let's take this rhythm home.

Let's take a ride on the Reading.

Ride, ride, ride on.
Ride, ride, ride on.

It's gonna take the New York Central
To get this whole job done.
