GRAVY TRAIN (Robert J. Purvis)

Even though you're in my circle

Man, you act like you were something else, yeah

Baby, you're no special person, better get a tighter hold of yourself, yeah

With your "I'm so very pretty" attitude towards this city

Baby, someone's gonna bring you down

I said, stand in a line and wait for the Gravy Train, yeah


Well you're working on the top floor

That don't mean you own the whole shebang, yeah

You got nothing on your arm that says you sit while everybody else stands, yeah

You need someone who can take you

Turn you over, maybe make you like you've never been made before

I said, stand in a line and wait for the Gravy Train, yeah


Gee, I'm gonna try now - no one can help you

Gee, I'm gonna try now - nobody cares

Gee, I'm gonna try now - nobody wants you

Gee, I'm gonna - yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah


When you wake up in the morning

Do you ever wonder where you're at, yeah

As you stare down on the city from your multi-storied council flat, yeah

I said, bye bye bye bye baby, you been up there too long

Maybe all those clouds are passing through your head

I said, stand in a line and wait for the Gravy Train, yeah


I said, bye bye bye bye baby, you been up there too long

Maybe all those clouds are passing through your head

I said, stand in a line and wait for the Gravy Train, yeah

I said, stand in a line and wait for the Gravy...

Wait for the Gravy Train

Wait for the Gravy Train

Wait for the Gravy Train

Wait for the Gravy Train

Wait for the Gravy Train

Wait for the Gravy Train...
