TUBE TRAIN (Ron Griffiths)
[Iveys demo from "94 Baker Street -The Pop Psych Sounds of the Apple Era, 1967-1969" CD - recorded 1967 - released U.S. 2003]

Metal mole, silver snake
Call it what you like
Flashing lights, neon signs
Such an eerie sight

It's a tube train, tube train
Tu-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-ube train

Spoken: In the rush hour, they're a drag
You can't find your feet
They're so full, yeah
To the brim, yeah
Sardine tins
on wheels

It's a tube train, tube train
Tu-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-ube train

Sometimes though, things get quiet
It's a fairyland (fairyland)
Inside the cavern
and its mazes
Do you understand, (understand)?
Then the silence, it gets broken
With a rushing wind (rushing wind)
Comes a train then, takes my baby
Swallows her so quick (her so quick)

[actual tube train sounds recorded with voice:
"Went to the Marquee", "Would you get off my toe, please?"]

Metal mole, silver snake
Call it what you like
Flashing lights, neon signs
Such an eerie sight

It's a tube train, tube train
Tu-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-ube train.
