Don't, don't make wars and walkaway
Even in the streets your feet don't move
See their faces through the perspex
Turn to stare back up at you
You, your eyes are green and mine are blue
In the subway darkness I am watching you

Oh my-my, you are so sci-fi,
Please will you let me ride?

Johnny, riding on the monorail
Johnny, riding on the monorail
Johnny, riding on the monorail
