Lyrics
When we got married back in 1944
We'd board that Silverliner below Baltimore
Trip to Virginia on a sunny honeymoon
Nobody cares about the railroads anymore

We'd tip that porter for a place of our own
Then send a postcard to your mommy and dad back home
Mmm, it did something to ya
When you'd hear that "All aboard"
Nobody cares about the railroads anymore

Wooie, woo-ooo-ooie, wooie
Wooie, woo-ooo-ooie, wooie

We had a daughter and you oughta see her now
She has a boyfriend who looks just like my gal Sal
And when they're married they won't need us anymore
They'll board an aeroplane and fly away from Baltimore

Wooie, woo-ooo-ooie, wooie
Wooie, woo-ooo-ooie, wooie

When we got married back in 1944
We'd board that Silverliner below Baltimore
Trip to Virginia on a sunny honeymoon
Nobody cares about the railroads anymore

La la la la-la la-la la la la, bye-bye
La la la la-la la-la la la la, don't cry
Mmm, it did something to ya
When you'd hear that "All aboard"
Nobody cares about the railroads anymore
