Steam Engine - Lyrics by Monkees


Lyrics
by Chip Douglas
Mr. Engineer,
Slow the engine down some more,
You're moving just a little too fast,I've got my foot down clear to the floor.
Steam engine,
Engine ninety-nine,
Steel drivers,
Rolling right on by.
Mr. Engineer,
You see I've got a little problem here,
My baby, she's aboard your train,
She says she's never coming back again.
Aw, steam engine,
Engine ninety-nine,
Steel drivers,
Rolling right on by.
She told me goodbye,
She said, "I'm leaving you behind,"I think I'm gonna die
If I hear that whistle whine.
Mr. Engineer,
Slow the engine down some more,
You're moving, moving just a little too fast,I've got my foot down clear to the floor.SOLO
Steam engine,
Engine ninety-nine,
Steel drivers,
Rolling right on by.
Gonna keep a', keep a'rolling,
She's gonna leave me, leave me behind,I might, I might as well go home, my home,
She's gonna leave me behind,fade out...
