Choo Choo Ch'Boogie, by Louis Jordan

Headin' for the station with a pack on my back
I'm tired a' transportation in the back of a hack
I love to hear the rhythm of the clickety-clack
And hear the lonesome whistle, see the smoke from the stack
I pal around with democratic fellas named Mac
So take me right back to the track, Jack

Choo-choo, choo-choo, ch'boogie!
Woo-woo, woo-woo, ch'boogie!
Choo-choo, choo-choo, ch'boogie!
Take me right back to the track, Jack

I reach the destination but alas and alack
I need some compensation to get back in the black
I take a morning paper from the top of the stack
And read the situations from the front to the back
But the only job that's open needs a man with a knack
So put it right back in the rack, Jack

Choo-choo, choo-choo, ch'boogie!
Woo-woo, woo-woo, ch'boogie!
Choo-choo, choo-choo, ch'boogie!
Take me right back to the track, Jack

I'm gonna settle down by the railroad track
and live the life of Riley in a beaten down shack
When I hear a whistle blowin' I can peep through the crack
Watch the train rollin' when it's ballin' the jack
I love to hear the rhythm of the clickety-clack
So take me right back to the track, Jack

Choo-choo, choo-choo, ch'boogie!
Woo-woo, woo-woo, ch'boogie!
Choo-choo, choo-choo, ch'boogie!
Take me right back to the track, Jack
Take me right back to the track!
