Come Ride Along With Me

Signals Lights

Dinosaur's Revenge

Choo Choo Blues

Layin' Down Those Railroad Ties

Early In The Morning

I'm An Engineer

My Big Machine

Stop, Look & Listen

I Love Toy Trains

Do You Wanna Play In My Playground

Aboard A Train

We All Live In A Neighborhood

 "COME RIDE ALONG WITH ME"

Come And Ride To A Railway Station

Beyond Imagination

Come Ride Along With Me

 

We Will Go Far Beyond The Hillside

Where Stories Grow And Dreams Hide

Come Ride Along With Me

 

Come Ride Along

We Will Sing Happy Songs

Come And Pretend

You May Even Make A Brand New Friend

 

Come And Ride To A Railway Station

Beyond Imagination

Come Ride Along With Me

 

We Will Go To A Destination

Beyond Your Expectations

Come Ride Along With Me

 

Come Ride Along

We Will Sing Happy Songs

Come And Pretend

You May Even Make A Brand New Friend

 

We Will Go Far Beyond The Hillside

Where Stories Grow And Dreams Hide

Come Ride Along With Me

 

Come And Ride To A Railway Station

Beyond Imagination

Come Ride Along With Me

Come Ride Along With Me

Come Ride Along With Me

"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)

"DINOSAUR'S REVENGE"

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 Stationhouse

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 Watertower

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

"CHOO-CHOO BLUES"

I've Got Those Choo Choo Blues

I've Got Those Choo Choo Blues

I've Got Those Choo Choo Blues

Because I Broke My Choo Choo Train

My Mama Told Me "Son"

"I Know You're Havin' Fun"

"But If Your Not Careful, You're Gonna Be Sorry Someday"

 

I Drove Them Way Too Fast

Now My Choo Choo Train's

A Thing Of The Past

I Made A Big Mistake And Now There's Ain't No More To Say

 

I've Got Those Choo Choo Blues

I've Got Those Choo Choo Blues

I've Got Those Choo Choo Blues

Because I Broke My Choo Choo Train

"LAYIN' DOWN THOSE RAILROAD TIES"

Work All Day And Sleep All Night

Up Right Away With The Morning Light

Swingin' That Hammer And Breakin' My Back

Layin' Down Those Railroad Tracks

 

Layin' Down Those Railroad Ties

Layin' Down Those Railroad Ties

Layin' Down Those Railroad Ties

Lord Help Me Finish Before I Die

 

Make My Livin' With Tears And Sweat

Ain't Much Of A Life For What You Get

100 Miles My Back Is Sore

The Bossman Says 100 More

 

Layin' Down Those Railroad Ties

Layin' Down Those Railroad Ties

Layin' Down Those Railroad Ties

Lord Help Me Finish Before I Die

 

Layin' Down Those Railroad Ties

Layin' Down Those Railroad Ties

Layin' Down Those Railroad Ties

Lord Help Me Finish Before I Die

"EARLY IN THE MORNING"

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

What Does He Do, The Engineer

Early In The Morning

He's The One That Has To Steer

He's The One That Has To Steer

He's The One That Has To Steer

That's What He Does The Engineer

"I'M AN ENGINEER"

From City To City And Town To Town

Hearin' Those Engine Pistons Pound

People In House Wherever I Go

Flicker By Like A Picture Show

This Mighty Steamer I'm Proud To Steer

From Place To Place And Year Year

I'm An Engineer

I'm An Engineer

 

From New York City To Sante Fe

San Francisco To St. John's Bay

Kansas City To Abilene

Buffalo To New Orleans

Louisville To Kalamazoo

Jackson Hole To Tippecanoe

 

From Burlington To Sacramento

Baton Rouge To Amarillo

East St. Louis To Charleston

Birmingham To Galveston

"MY BIG MACHINE"

I'm Gonna Pick It Up

I'm Gonna Put It Down

I'm Gonna Work Real Hard

I'm Gonna Dig That Dirt Right Out Of The Ground

 

I'm Gonna Fill It Up

I'm Gonna Knock It Down

I'm Gonna Do It Right

I'm Gonna Lift It Up And Slide It Around

 

Just Call Me If You Need A Hand

On A Building Or Movin' Some Land

If You Need It Done Right Away

I'll Be Finished By The End Of The Day

 

I'm Gonna Pick It Up

I'm Gonna Put It Down

I'm Gonna Work Real Hard

I'm Gonna Dig That Dirt Right Out Of The Ground

 

Just Call Me If You Need A Hand

On A Building Or Movin' Some Land

If You Need It Done Right Away

I'll Be Finished By The End Of The Day

 

I'm Gonna Scrape It Off

I'm Gonna Brush It Clean

Just Watch Me Now

I'm Gonna Get It Done In My Big Machine

I'm Gonna Get It Done In My Big Machine

I'm Gonna Get It Done In My Big Machine

"STOP, LOOK & LISTEN"

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

"I LOVE TOY TRAINS"

As They Travel Along On The Railroad Track

With The Little Boxcars Being Pulled In Back

You Can Hear The Sound Of That Clicky 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

"DO YOU WANNA PLAY IN MY PLAYGROUND"

Do You Want To Have Some Fun

I Know A Way To Make It Happen

Let's Pretend We're Building A Town

Do You Wanna Play In My Playground

 

Do You Want To Have Some Fun

I Know A Way To Make It Happen

Let's Pretend We're Building A Town

Do You Wanna Play In My Playground

 

Everyone Has A Job To Do

Moving Earth Or Building Highways

Gotta Get It Done Before The Sun Goes Down

Do You Wanna Play In My Playground

 

Dig Some Dirt And Move It Around

Clear The Way Another Load Is Coming

Engines Roar And Hammers Pound

Do You Wanna Play In My Playground

 

Do You Want To Have Some Fun

I Know A Way To Make It Happen

Let's Pretend We're Building A Town

Do You Wanna Play In My Playground

Do You Wanna Play In My Playground

Do You Wanna Play In My Playground

"ABOARD A TRAIN"

Come Along It's Time For Us To Travel To A Place That Is Far Away

To Yesterday

 

Hear The Whistle Blow And Now It's Time For Us To Go Without Delay

We're On Our Way

 

Move Down The Tracks

Sailing Along With The Wind At Our Backs

Pass By The Cities, The Houses And Shacks

Grabbing Ahold Of A Memory From The Past

 

Journey Through The Countryside, The Great Divide, The Rocky Shores Maine

Aboard A Train

Rolling By The Mountains And The Valleys And The Wide-Open Plains

Through Fields Of Grain

 

An American Dream

Caught In A Era Of Fire, Smoke And Steam

Traveling Along

By The Cool Mountain Streams

Climb All Aboard For A Magical Railway Ride

Aboard A Train

Aboard A Train

Aboard A Train
