Freight Lyrics


by Rusty. From Starlight Express.


DINAH
Oh no!
BUFFY
Oh shucks!
PEARL
It's the freight trains.
ASHLEY
The dumb trucks!
BUFFY
Forty tons of empty chrome.
DINAH
The lights are on
ASHLEY
But nobody's home!
BUFFY
Let's show them who's boss.
DINAH
Ler's play a joke.
PEARL
Yeah, let's have some fun.
ASHLEY
Let's have a smoke!
DINAH
Here they come...
BUFFY
To fill our station...
PEARL
With witty, sparkling conversation!
TRUCKS
Freight is great
Freight is great
We carry weight 'cos we are freight
And freight is great.
Freight is great
Freight is great
We never sulk.We hulk the bulk.
'Cos freight is great.
We never make a fuss. We got the goods on us.
We take the loads from off the roads
And freight is great.
COACHES
That's brilliant
Don't you wish you'd thought of that?

One more time!
Did you think of that all by yourselves?
It's so profound!

Well I certainly learned something today!


You just listen to what the coach says!


COACHES
Couldn't stand gravel and sand,
Being ignored, no-one aboard,
Nodoby complaining we were late again.
I should hate carrying freight, nobody living in me.
Got to be a living, breathing passenger train.
TRUCKS
Freight is great.
Freight is great.
TRUCKS / COACHES
Freight/Couldn't stand gravel and sand,
Being ignored, no-one aboard,
Is great/Nodoby complaining we were late again.
We carry weight/I should hate carrying freight, nobody living in me.
And freight is great/Got to be a living, breathing passenger train.
It's mommas and poppas/ it's commerce and hoppers,
It's daughters and sons/it's quaters and tons,
They get in your hair/it's the fun of the fair,
Freight!/Folks!/Tares!/Fares!
Passengers, commuters and mail/
Trees and meat, gravel and shale/
Are great, are great, are great, are great, are great!
CONTROL
Control. Control. You wagons and passenger cars just cut it out.
Trucks will identity themselves. Box cars:
ROCKY I
I'm Rocky, there's lots like me.
ROCKY II
I'm Rocky two.
ROCKY III
I'm Rocky three.
ROCKIES
The only time we get sick inside
Is when some bum hitches a ride.
We wait for a sharp corner to come
And open the door - bye bye bum!
TRUCKS
Freight is great!
CONTROL
Brick truck.
FLAT-TOP
Flat-Top - who you looking at?
Yeah, they're bricks - what's wrong with that?
No, you're right, they don't all match.
Yes they're heavy - here, catch!
TRUCKS
Freight is great!
CONTROL
The big hopper.
FLAT-TOP
Dustin, that's you, mate.
CONTROL
Come on, the big hopper.
FLAT-TOP
Come on, Dustin.
DUSTIN
I'm the big hopper, I'm not a box.
ROCKIES
Yeah, your head is full of rocks.
DUSTIN
They're not rocks, they're bits of gravel.
Gravel's got a right to travel.
DUSTIN AND FLAT-TOP
Travellin' with gravel in.
Praying that we don't get wet.
Water and mortar
Do things they didn't oughter.
Empty me before I set.
TRUCKS
Down the track from A to B and back
We carry things not people -
People talk a lot -
That isn't what we like.
COACHES
They're strong and silent!
TRUCKS
None of us may be a genius
But we know one thing -
What we know is:
Freight is great.
Freight is great.
COACHES AND TRUCKS
It's mommas and poppas/ it's commerce and hoppers/
It's daughters and sons/it's quaters and tons/
They get in your hair/it's the fun of the fair/
Freight!/Folks!/Tares!/Fares!
Passengers, commuters and mail/
Trees and meat, gravel and shale/
On the rails, on the rails, on the rails, on the rails
Are great, are great, are great, are great, are GREAT!
