“Steam Engine” (prev. unissued alternate mix) Lyrics

Mr. Engineer, slow the engine down some more
You’re movin’ just a little too fast
I’ve got my foot down clear to the floor

Steam engine
Engine ninety-nine
Steam drivers
Rollin’ right on by

Mr. Engineer, you see I’ve got a little problem here
My baby, she’s aboard your train
She said she’s never comin’ back again

Steam engine
Engine ninety-nine
Steam drivers
Rollin’ right on by

She told me goodbye, she said, “I’m leavin’ you behind”
I think I’m gonna die if I hear that whistle whine

Mr. Engineer, slow the engine down some more
You’re movin’, movin’ just a little too fast
I’ve got my foot down clear to the floor

[break]

Steam engine
Engine ninety-nine
Steam drivers
Rollin’ right on by

(Steam engine) Gotta keep on, keep on rollin’
(Steam engine) She’s gonna leave me, leave me behind on my
(Steam engine) I might as well go home
(Steam engine) She’s gonna leave me behind
