Wrong Train

I knew I was going to take the wrong train so I left early.

I was tweeting Yogi Berra quotes, and when I read the above quote, I laughed out loud. It reminded me of my wild youth and inspired a song.  I’ve got a feeling that I could do a whole series of songs based on Yogiisms. Makes me smile just thinking about it.

It’s a powerful song. Reminds me of just how far I have come…..

Hope you enjoy~

Wrong Train

 

Nodding, bobbing, weaving, pacing

Tired of the game

Plodding, sobbing, grieving, chasing

So afraid of fame

I took a  job that was safe

And it was driving me insane

 

Pack your bags

Check your load

Mind the tags

Hit the road

There is no time to entertain

You’ve got to leave early

To catch the wrong train

 

Crying , throbbing, screaming, scathing

Wanting to get away

Rocking, sobbing, pleading, chasing

Trying to reclaim

The girl that I used to be

Before I lived with Mary Jane

 

Pack your bags

Check your load

Mind the tags

Hit the road

There is no time to entertain

You’ve got to leave early to catch the wrong train

I knew I was going to take the wrong train, so I left early.

Come back conductor, hey change this ticket for me

I’m coming back to dreams,

I’m coming back to me

 

Pack your bags

Check your load

Mind the tags

Hit the road

There is no time to entertain

You’ve got to leave early

To catch the wrong train
