The Lyrics

Friday, Jan. 20, 2006 "Dead Man Rides Subway Car, Possibly for Hours"....
I see a dead man ariding
All of his troubles gone away
On the old subway car he's sliding
After his work was done today

Watch where you sit tonight
Cause you might get a fright
There's a dead man on the ride

I hear they had to clear the train out
They called technicians to the scene
They fear he rode a long while, no doubt
Dead as a dead man's ever been

Watch where you sit tonight
Cause you might get a fright
There's a dead man on the ride

Hope you got your will together
Nobody knows when they will die
At least he died out of the weather
All of the world went flying by

There, underground tonight
Another took a flight
There's a dead man on the ride

There, underground tonight
Another took a flight
There's a dead man on the ride

Gives a whole new meaning to Petula Clark's words, "Don't sleep in the subway." All aboard the Number 5 train. (For those who don't know New York's transit system, the 4, 5 and 6 trains are the "Lexington Avenue line" of the old IRT, Interborough Rapid Transit, on the East Side of Manhattan and The Bronx. The Number 4 goes to Yankee Stadium, and the Number 6 was featured in the movie "The Taking of Pelham One Two Three.")

"Dead Man"'s getting fived. Reminds me of Dorothy Parker's alleged response to the news that Calvin Coolidge had died: "How could they tell?"

He was on the subway for over 6 hours - somewhat bizarre, but very well depicted, Royce.

These kinds of "happenings" lend themselves to our mockery sooo well. "At least he died out of the weather" was my favorite line here. I'm not sure what's worse though, dying in a crowded subway without anyone noticing or dying in your own car and getting fined while sitting there rotting away:

Being on the subway for over 6 hours isn't that odd, John J. Some guys are just trying to make a living. Some of them by actually performing a service, not to mention music. And some of them are just waiting for the A train to get out of Ozone Park!
