Steam Train Lyrics


by Company. From Songs For A New World.


MAN 1:
You don't know me, but you will. Let me introduce myself.

Submitted for your approval
A picture of basketball
The man with the muscle
And the man with the moves

Submitted for your approval
The man who's too fast to fall
The man who can hustle
And the man who can fly
Who always is hot
When it's time for the shot

‘Cause at any time you want me at all
Any rhyme or reason
Brother, I'm the brother you call to play
Spring or summer,
Winter or fall
Any time or season
Catch the boy who's moving the ball away

It's called a steam train
Coming down the track
Better watch your step
Better watch your back
Can't you see the shadow
Fast and black
And the steam train's rolling by

Steam train chuggin' down the hill
If you don't move now then you never will
He's on your tail and he's in for the kill
Then the Steam Train's rolling by.

WOMAN 2:
He's better than Magic Johnson

MAN 2:
The man's all talk, no action

MAN 1:
My subjects agree

WOMAN 1 & WOMAN 2:
Toot, toot!
Here comes the Steam Train.

MAN 2:
Bigger than Michael Jordan

MAN 1:
Yeah, yeah.

MAN 2, WOMAN 1, & WOMAN 2:
Prepare for attack
When the train's on the track

MAN 1:
Listen, I have got my hands on the wheel

MAN 2, WOMAN 1, & WOMAN 2:
Someone's got to meet him
Taking all, the train's gonna steal your fame!

MAN 1:
Watch me as I line up a deal
With Nike and Adidas

MAN 1, MAN 2, WOMAN 1, & WOMAN 2:
All the world is starting to feel the weight

Of the Steam Train coming down the track
Better watch your step
Better watch your back

MAN 1:
Better keep your eyeballs open, Jack

MAN 1 & WOMAN 1:
When the Steam Train's rolling by

MAN 1, MAN 2, WOMAN 1, & WOMAN 2:
Steam Train chuggin' down the hill

MAN 1:
If you want to live, better don't stand still

MAN 1, MAN 2, WOMAN 1, & WOMAN 2:
He's on the move
And he's in for the kill
And the steam train's rolling by

MAN 1:
You don't know me. The last time I saw my father I was five years old. He hadn't been home for two months. He
came into the apartment at 3 o'clock in the morning, set fire to the drapes and carpets and then woke up me and
my sister, carried us outside, then walked away while we watched the building burn down. You don't know me, but
you will.

A new world just across the river

MAN 2, WOMAN 1, & WOMAN 2:
Just across the river there's

MAN 1, MAN 2, WOMAN 1, & WOMAN 2:
A new world where I'll have it all
A new world just around the corner
Here it comes
Here it comes

Gotta win, gotta run, gotta move, gotta go
Gotta leave all thoughts behind him
He's gotta fly, he's gotta fly
Steam Train, he's got places to go
No one ever finds him
Steam Train's movin' on with the show
Good-bye, good-bye
Look out! Here comes the Steam Train

It's called a Steam Train
Coming down the track
Better watch your step
Better watch your back
Can't you see the shadow
Fast and black
And the Steam Train's rolling by

Steam Train chuggin' down the hill
If you don't move now then you never will
He's on your tail and he's in for the kill
Then the Steam Train's rolling
Steam Train's rolling
Steam Train's rolling

MAN 2, WOMAN 1, & WOMAN 2:
By...

MAN 1:
You don't know me. There were 12 boys in my 5th grade class at Sojourner Truth. 4 of them are in jail, 6 of
them are dead, and Gordon Conners works at Twin Donut on 125th Street. You don't know me, but you will.
