Roller-Coaster Train

I live in the city
I travel on the subway
That is how I get around
Usually once or twice a day
It can be kinda dull
Til one day that all changed
When I was a-riding on a roller-coaster train

I don’t know quite what happened
But something surely did
The businessman beside me
And his coffee flipped its lid
Normal operations
Just went right down the drain
When I was a-riding on a roller-coaster train

Normally the subway
Just goes straight ahead
But that day it went side to side
And around it quickly sped
Suitcases were flying
And they came down like the rain
When I was a-riding on a roller-coaster train

It was not a good day
To be eating chicken soup
‘Cause that train went up and it went down
And then it did a loop
I swear to you that morning
Was really quite insane
When I was a-riding on a roller-coaster train

First it turned a corner
Then it turned around
Next thing we all knew
We were upside-down
Someone’s groceries were airborne
And out flew a candy cane
When I was a-riding on a roller-coaster train

I had coffee on my pants
Chicken soup upon my cheek
By the time the subway stopped I felt
Just a little weak
And there was a woozy feeling
Somewhere in my brain
When I finally got off of that roller-coaster train

Roller Coaster Train

“Roller-Coaster Train” appears on my first CD of children’s music, Har Har Har (2008).

A subway train can be just as exciting and just as scary as a roller-coaster, for various possible reasons.
