As They Travel Along On The Railroad Track

With The Little Boxcars Being Pulled In Back

You Can Hear The Sound Of That Clickity Clack

As They Pass The Houses

And The Little Toy Shack

 

It's A Wonderful Kind Of Feeling, It's A Feeling I Can't Explain

It's A Wonderful Kind Of Feeling

That's The Reason I Love Toy Trains

 

On A Rainy Day When The Sun Won't Shine

I Can Count On Them

To Make Me Feel Just Fine

There's Always Lots Of Fun

Coming Down The Line

Pass The Station House And The Railroad Sign

 

It's A Wonderful Kind Of Feeling

It's A Feeling I Can't Explain

It's A Wonderful Kind Of Feeling

That's The Reason I Love Toy Trains

When You're Walking Along Through A City Or Town

And You Hear A Familiar Whistle Sound You Better Get Eyes Up Off The Ground

There's Somethin' Coming Take A Look Around

 

You've Gotta Stop, Look And Listen, That's The Safest Plan For You

Stop, Look And Listen, That's The Sensible Thing To Do

 

When You're Ridin' Along In Your Mom & Dad's Car

And See A Round Sign With An R & R

There Might Be A Train That's Not Too Far

Make Them Stop And Look To See Where They Are

 

You've Gotta Stop, Look And Listen, That's The Safest Plan For You

Stop, Look And Listen, That's The Sensible Thing To Do

 

Now It Makes No Difference If It's Day Or Night

When You See The Gate With The Flashing Lights

Put On The Brakes And Hang-On Tight

Then Look To The Left And Look To The Right

 

You've Gotta Stop, Look And Listen, That's The Safest Plan For You

Stop, Look And Listen, That's The Sensible Thing To Do

Smooth Operator

Words & Music By James Coffey

You got that thick black smoke comin' out of your stack

You got a hundred boxcars being pulled in back

You're stopping at the stations along the way

When you roll on by, you can hear them say

 

You're such a smooth operator

Smooth operator

You're such a smooth operator headed down the line

You got a full head of steam and you're right on time

You're such a smooth operator

Smooth operator

You're a smooth operator and that's a fact

'Cause you're the king of the railroad track

 

You travel along through the countryside

Just playin' your song on those railway ties

You're headed home and your whistle blows

Down at the station everybody knows

 

You're such a smooth operator

Smooth operator

You're such a smooth operator headed down the line

You got a full head if steam and you're right on time

You're such a smooth operator

Smooth operator

You're a smooth operator and that's a fact

'Cause you're the king of the railroad track

When a train rolls along, what do you hear?

When a train rolls along, what do you hear?

You hear a clickity clack, clickity clack

Here comes a train down the railroad track

 

When the whistle blows what do you hear?

When the whistle blows what do you hear?

When the whistle blows what do you hear?

You hear a woo woo, clickity clack

Here comes a train down the railroad track

 

When the engine runs,, what do you hear?

When the engine runs, what do you hear?

When the engine runs, what do you hear?

You hear a choo choo, woo woo, clickity clack

Here comes a train down the railroad track

 

When the train bell rings, what do you hear?

When the train bell rings, what do you hear?

When the train bell rings, what do you hear?

You hear a clang clang, choo choo, woo woo, clickity clack

Here comes a train down the railroad track

 

What do you hear?

When the crossing gate's down, what do you hear?

When the crossing gate's down, what do you hear?

When the crossing gate's down, what do you hear?

You hear a ding ding, clang clang, choo choo, woo woo, clickity clack

Here comes a train down the railroad track

 

When it's time to go, what do you hear?

When it's time to go, what do you hear?

When it's time to go, what do you hear?

You hear an all aboard, ding ding, clang clang, choo choo, woo woo, clickity clack

Here comes a train down the railroad track

Signal Lights

Yeah Those Signal Lights

Tell Me When It's Safe To Go

Yeah Those Signal Lights

Tell Me When It's Time To Go Slow

Yeah Those Signal Lights

They Help Control The Traffic Flow

Yeah Those Signal Lights

Are There To Help The Trains Come And Go

 

There Are Lights Along The Railroad Track

Just For The Engineer

They Tell Him If He Needs To Stop

Or If Everything's All Clear

They Might Be Along The Ground

Or Somewhere Way Up High

They Could Be Telling You To Stop

And Let Another Train Go By

 

Yeah Those Signal Lights

Tell Me When It's Safe To Go

Yeah Those Signal Lights

Tell Me When It's Time To Go Slow

Yeah Those Signal Lights

They Help Control The Traffic Flow

Yeah Those Signal Lights

Are There To Help The Trains Come And Go

 

And When The Light Is Green It Means Everything Is Clear Ahead

But Be Ready To Stop For A Little While

If The Light Is Red

Slow Down For The Yellow Light

And Take A Real Good Look Around

There Could Be Trouble On The Railroad Track Like A Train That Has Broken Down

(Chorus)

What Do You Do With A Tanker Car

What Do You Do With A Tanker Car

What Do You Do With A Tanker Car

Early In The Morning

You Fill It Up And Travel Far

You Fill It Up And Travel Far

You Fill It Up And Travel Far

That's What You Do With A Tanker Car

 

What Do You Do With A Railway Crane

What Do You Do With A Railway Crane

What Do You Do With A Railway Crane

Early In The Morning

You Help Load Things Onto The Trains

You Help Load Things Onto The Trains

You Help Load Things Onto The Trains

That's What You Do With A Railway Crane

 

What Do You Do With A Railway Switch

What Do You Do With A Railway Switch

What Do You Do With A Railway Switch

Early In The Morning

You Let Trains Off So They Can Unhitch

You Let Trains Off So They Can Unhitch

You Let Trains Off So They Can Unhitch

That's What You Do With A Railway Switch

 

What Does He Do, The Engineer

What Does He Do, The Engineer

He's The One That Has To Steer

Look Out There's A Dinosaur On The Loose

He Just Took A Bite Outta My Caboose

They Just Stopped In For A Little Snack

Now They're Eating Everything

On The Railroad Track

It's Something Strange I Must Confess

They Look Like Something

Straight Outta Loch Ness

Now They're Back From A Long Vacation

And Munching Away On My Railway Station

 

Like A Scene Right Out Of A Picture Show

Like When Godzilla Ate Tokyo

They Haven't Eatin' For A Million Years

"Has Anyone Seen My Engineer"

Look There's One 10 Stories Tall

I Don't Think This Is A Social Call

There's One More Just As Big As A Crane

Don't Ask Me How I Can't Explain

 

Come Along And Take A Look

It's A Picture Right Out Of The History Book

Standing There Just As Big As A Bus

Is A Big T-Rex And A Stegosaurous

They're Eating The Station house

Brick By Brick

And Using Railroad Ties For Toothpicks

Perhaps For Dessert They'll Eat Some Freight

Or Maybe A Bridge Or A Signal Gate

 

I Know It Doesn't Seem Quite Right

I'd Better Have The Doctor Check My Eyesight

Now There Headed To The Water tower

For A Drink

"Hey I Thought These Old Guys Were Extinct"

Well That Was Then And This Is Now

They Must Of Found Their Way Back Somehow

I Don't Know What We Will Do

There'll Be Nothing Left

When They Are Through

 

Now All The Dinosaurs Let Out A Roar

When The Conductor Shouted "All Aboard"

Wait A Minute I Think I See Now

It's All Becoming Clear To Me

They're Not Just Here To Have Some Lunch

It's Something More I Have A Hunch

That's When I Started To Realize

All They Wanted Was A Little Ride

 

They Climbed On Board And Off They Went

Riding Along So Calm And Content

I'd Never Seen Nothin' So Bizarre

"As A Dinosaur On A Railroad Car"

Now You Don't Need A Fancy PHD

To Figure Out This Little Mystery

The Moral Of The Story Is We're All The Same

We All Wanna Ride On Choo Choo Train

I Love Toy Trains - Theme 2

I love toy trains, I love toy trains

I love to hear the sound of that clickity clack

As they travel along down the railroad track

With the little boxcars being pulled in back

And that little puff of smoke comin' out the stack

 

I love toy trains, I love toy trains

I love the way they look and the way they sound

Stoppin' at the stations in every town

I love the way they travel all around and 'round

That's the reason I love toy trains

I love to hear the sound of that clickity clack

As they travel along down the railroad track

With the little boxcars being pulled in back

That's the reason I love toy trains
