 once upon a time

LET’S TAKE A TRAIN
 
C'mon let’s take a train. A train?
Where to? Does it matter? Let’s go.
Look I don’t want to appear obtuse.
But to my mind you gotta have a place to go.
Again I ask why does it matter?
Well a destination helps.
 
Okay we get a train, any train and go.
But where to? Anywhere that’s where.
Look let's get this straight, we get on a train, yes?
And we go anywhere? Yep, okay, then what?
I don’t know. We are somewhere, anywhere.
What is wrong with right here and now?
Nothing. It’s just here and not somewhere else.
 
Say for talks sake we take a train, then what?
 I don’t know. Sort that bit out when we get there.
Get where? All we got is a lot of nowhere.
What’s wrong with that? We’re on the move.
So come on, lets catch a train. You go, I stay.
When you return from somewhere
tell me where it was, okay?
