PASSENGER STEAM

rat a tat tat …… rat a tat tat
here comes the train …… chugging its way
time after time …… each working day
hear wheel squeal …… scrape on the rail
in all weathers ……. blizzard and hail
serpentine twist …… tortuous turn
hissing of steam …… anthracite burn
rat a tat tat …… rat a tat tat
rat a tat tat …… rat a tat tat
over the points …… clickety clack
to the criss-cross …… for changing track
up the valley …… on long incline
make up minutes …… on faster line
leaving green space …… into the town
and last station …… arrive on time
rat a tat tat …… rat a ta.
