Lyrics

Headin' for the station with a pack on the back I'm tired of transportation in the back of hack I love to hear the rhythm of the clickity clack and hear the lonesome whistle, see the smoke from and pal around with democratic fellows named Mac; so, take me right back to the track, Jack! RF: Choo choo, choo choo, ch'boogie! woo woo, ooh ooh, ch'boogie! Choo choo, choo choo, ch'boogie! Take me right back to the track, Jack! You reach your destination, but alas and alack! You need some compensation to get back in the black! You take your morning paper from the top of the stack and read the situition from the front to the back! The only job that's open needs a man with a knack so put it right back in the rack, Jack! RF Gonna settle down by the railroad track, live the life of riley in a beaten-down shack, so when I hear whistle I can peak through the crack, and watch the train a rollin' when they're ballin' the Jack. I just love thr rhythm of the clickity clack, so take me right back to the track Jack! RF Take me right back to the track Jack!
