Wolverine Choo-Choo (You knew this was coming)

Sung to tune of “Chattanooga Choo-Choo” (sort of, loosely, maybe not so much)

Pardon me, Boys

Is this the Amtrak Wol ver ee-ine?

Cuz I’m delay-ed again,

Train versus truck –

Guess which one will-a win?

Semi driver is saaad,

Cuz he was in-in quite a pickle! (Woo! Woo! Woo!)

Forget ‘beats to the bar’

Instead, that train is away just how far? (triplets on the end, here)

Sittin’ in my seeeat, and adjustin’ my pose,

Situatin’, settlin’ in; then wha-attt do you suppose? (eighth notes on end)

Those wheels, once a chuggin’

Start to slo-ow on down!

But we had just-a started out

From that Ann Arbor town!

Pardon me, Inspectors!

Could you speed it up a little? (Please! Please! Please!)

Gotta see the bride and groom,

Before they le-eave for the honeymoon!

Nothin’ could be finer

Than bein’ on a superliner

When it rams a semi trailer –

Kayaks go-o just-a sailin’…

So…pardon me, Boys,

But it took over three-ee hours! (Boo! Hoo! Hoo!)

To be clear-ed to run,

Back on the track

Toward that settin’ down sun!

Pulled into Chicago

And whadda ya know?

Missed my connection

To the next place to go!

Put up in a ho-tel,

Will I miss the wedding be-ells?

No, no, no!

Got the earliest train!
