What in the world ever became of sweet Jane?
She lost her sparkle, you know she isn't the same
Livin' on reds, vitamin C, and cocaine
All a friend can say is "Ain't it a shame"

You made me cry when you said goodbye
Ain't that a shame
My tears fell like rain

Then you said "so long". Left me standing all alone
Alone and crying, crying, crying crying
It's hard to understand but the touch of your hand
Can start me crying

I'll never let you see [...] All the sorrow and pain
I'll do my crying in the rain

Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain
Telling me just what a fool I've been
I wish that it would go and let me cry in vain
And let me be alone again.

I'm never going to stop the rain by complaining
Because I'm free
Nothing's worrying me

Long as I remember the rain been coming down.
Clouds of mystery pouring confusion on the ground.
Good men through the ages, trying to find the sun;
And I wonder, still I wonder, who'll stop the rain.

If it keeps on rainin' levee's goin' to break
When the levee breaks I'll have no place to stay

And when I die, and when I'm gone
There'll be, one child born
In this world
To carry on, to carry on

Mister President, Mister Immigration Man,
Let me in, sweetie, to your fair land.
I'm Tampa bound and Memphis too,
Short Fat Fanny is on the loose.

Nighttime on the city of New Orleans
Changing cars in Memphis, Tennessee
Half way home, we'll be there by morning
Through the Mississippi darkness
Rolling down to the sea

I'm a long ways from home
And I missed my loved one so
In the early mornin' rain
With no place to go

I went into town for one last round and I gambled my ticket away.

Now the big steel rail won't carry me home to the one I love.

"Is this the train to Desert Moon?"
Was all she said
But I knew I'd heard
That stranger's voice before.

Wondering in the night what were the chances

And somewhere in the darkness
The gambler he broke even
But in his final words
I found an ace that I could keep

Your black cards can make you money
So you hide them when you're able
In the land of milk and honey
You must put them on the table

Silky Sam was a gambling man
And the cards all would dance in his hand
The stars would shine just to make a lucky sign
So you'd understand

When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars

Now my gal she's running across the depot
Up to the depot agent's window
And she asks him what time train time was
And he said, "Go put your head on the track.
When you hear the rail singing, you know train time won't be long."

And the sons of Pullman Porters
And the sons of engineers
Ride their father's magic carpet made of steel
Mothers with their babes asleep
Are rockin' to the gentle beat
And the rhythm of the rail is all they feel

Choo Choo Charlie was an engineer; Choo Choo Charlie had a train we hear.
He had an engine and it sure was fun. He used Good 'n' Plenty candy to make the train run.

Charlie says...'Love my Good 'n' Plenty'! Charlie says...'really rings my bell'! (ding)
Charlie says...'love my Good 'n' Plenty. It is Good 'n' Plenty candy that I love so well."

Some gotta win, some gotta lose
Good time Charlie's got the blues

I wish my life was non-stop Hollywood movie show
A fantasy world of celluloid villains and heroes
Because celluloid heroes never feel any pain
And celluloid heroes never really die

I need a hero,
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light.
He's gotta be sure, and it's gotta be soon,
And he's gotta be larger than life.

I will be King
And you, you will be Queen
Though nothing will drive them away
We can be heroes just for one day
We can be us just for one day

Well the way that we're living,
Is all take and no giving,
There's nothing to believe in,
The loudest mouth will hail the new found way,
To be king for a day

Found my coat and grabbed my hat,
Made the bus in seconds flat.
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke,
And somebody spoke and I went into a dream....

Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you
But in your dreams whatever they be
Dream a little dream of me

Sweet dreams are made of this.
Who am I to disagree?
I travel the world and the seven seas,
Everybody's looking for something.

I close my eyes, then I drift away
Into the magic night, I softly say
A silent prayer like dreamers do
Then I fall asleep to dreams, my dreams of you
