Ooo-ooh train/Choo-choo train (alt.)

Comin down the track (x2)

Take my baby on to Birmingham

And don’t you bring her back!

 

Since my baby left me

I’m lonesome all the time (x2)

I’ve been so all alone

My songs don’t even rhyme

Aside: (well, not always)

 

Ooo-ooh train/Choo-choo train

Comin down the track (x2)

Take my baby on to Birmingham

And don’t you bring her back!

 

Well since my baby left me

She’s  goin’ out with a farmer man (x2)

Shiny new pickup truck

And a TV from Japan.

 

Ooo-ooh train/Choo-choo train

Comin down the track (x2)

Take my baby on to Birmingham

And don’t you bring her back!

 

(change tune to Heartbreak Hotel)

Yeah, since my baby left me

I’ve found a new place to dwell

It’s halfway down Chalybeate (pron. calibyate) Street

And that’s the road to Hell!

 

Ooo-ooh train/Choo-choo train

Comin down the track (x2)

Take my baby on to Birmingham

And don’t you bring her back!

 

So I went down to Rummers

Drown my sorrows in the tide (x2)

Then we stumbled on to Yoko’s

Man, you can’t come inside!

 

Ooo-ooh train/Choo-choo train

Comin down the track (x2)

Take my baby on to Birmingham

And don’t you bring her back!

 

I woke up on the beach

My new chick by my side (x2)

She’s so damn fat an’ ugly

She’ll always be my bride!

 

Arriva Wales train

Comin down the line

You eleven-thirty train

Comin down the line

Take my baby on to Birmingham

You always there on time

 

‘No trolley service’ train

Comin down the track

‘No off-peak savers’ train

Comin down the track

Take my baby on to Birmingham

And please… please Mr Driver

Don’t you EVER bring her back!

 

Iechyd da, pob!
