Train I ride don't be slow
Fifteen miles down the track
Counting poles counting sheep
If your wheels on the line

Since I went upon my way
Be a star change my name
Til this midnight express
Cause she said she won't wait
So there's no turning back

Just one chance we had to take
Left her with my friend Jack
Things didn't turn out so well
We were lucky we got paid
Mr Train driver please
Every cent I have now
And that's it more or less
I know I can't be late
She'll just go marry Jack
And it's 25 to midnight and fifteen miles of track
We called ourselves the Latino Lovers
I didn't think I could sink this low
This isn't how it was meant to be
If I was ever to get out alive

If your whistle can blow
Tell them I'm coming back
Til this midnight express
Cause she said she won't wait
So there's no turning back
And it's 25 to midnight and fifteen miles of trackTrain I ride don't be slow
Fifteen miles down the track
Counting poles counting sheep
If your wheels on the line

Since I went upon my way
Be a star change my name
Til this midnight express
Cause she said she won't wait
So there's no turning back

Just one chance we had to take
Left her with my friend Jack
Things didn't turn out so well
We were lucky we got paid
Mr Train driver please
Every cent I have now
And that's it more or less
I know I can't be late
She'll just go marry Jack
And it's 25 to midnight and fifteen miles of track
We called ourselves the Latino Lovers
I didn't think I could sink this low
This isn't how it was meant to be
If I was ever to get out alive

If your whistle can blow
Tell them I'm coming back
Til this midnight express
Cause she said she won't wait
So there's no turning back
And it's 25 to midnight and fifteen miles of track
