The Rail Way

Don’t be cooped up in a car

Concentrating on every mile

Sit yourself back in a train

Look out the window

Smile at the rain

 

Don’t be cooped up in a car

Juggernauts juddering by

Sit at ease with a book

Browse a paper or look

Out of the window again

At moorland mountain and fen

 

Don’t be cooped up in a car

Idiots penning you in

Walk down the carriage a while

Travel and going in style

Get yourself coffee or tea

And bring something back just for me
