Perry Como - "Watchin' The Trains Go By" lyrics

Woo, he's watchin' the choo choo,
Woo, he watchin' the train!

Watchin' the trains go by, watchin' the trains go by
Wish I had the ticket that I can't afford
Hear that old conductor holler "All Aboard!"
Wonder how this world looks, outside of picture books

Rocky mountains, rollin' plains an' desert skies
Passin' before my eyes
When the whistle blows toot toot toot,
the engine goes chug chug
And I hear that bell go clang clang clang,
and my heart gives a tug tug tug

Watchin' the trains go by, I'm just a small town guy
Wishin' I could hurry up an' start to pack
Grab my gal and hop the train an' not come back
Instead of that I'm sitting by the railroad track,
Watchin' the trains go by, watchin' the trains go by!

There's a choo choo comin' down the track,
I can almost see it's smoky stack
But it ain't no use, alas I lack
Guess I'll always be here, watchin' the trains go by!
Oh! how I'd love to stop it! ( Watchin' the trains go by! )
How I'd love to hop it!
Wish I had a ticket that I can't afford ( Ho Ho Ho! )
Hear that old conductor holler "Yes, All Aboard!"
( I often wonder how this world looks . . . ) Like to see some traffic!
( outside of picture books . . . ) Outside the National Geographic!
Rocky mountains, rollin' plains an' desert skies ( Ho Ho Ho! )
Passin' before my eyes
When the whistle blows toot toot toot,
the engine goes chug chug chug chug
And I hear that bell go clang clang clang,
and my heart gives a tug tug tug

I'm watchin' the trains go by, I'm just a small town guy
Wishin' I could hurry up an' start to pack
Grab my gal and hop the train an' not come back
Instead of that I'm sitting by the railroad track,
Watchin' the trains go by, watchin' the trains go by!
Woo, I'm watchin' the trains go by . . . Watchin' the trains go by . . .
Woo, I'm watchin' the trains go . . . Watchin' the trains go by . . .
