The Lyrics

No smoking, littering, or loud radio playing permitted on the train. Standing passengers please do not lean against the doors. Next stop......
I need to go to O'Hare, and I am in the Chicago Loop
I do not want to take a cab, because it's thirty bucks

But I am smiling since I, found a cheaper alternative
For a dollar fifty cents, I know its never sucks

Cause out of the subway darkness, there comes an L train
Oh L train take this traveler, come take me to my home

On the train I am smiling, looking down at the Kennedy
Expressway frozen gridlock, my mind is free to roam

The L Train sounding louder
Hop on the L train
Come on now L train
The L train sounding better

Everyone come on the L train
Come on now L train

Just walk up the platform, no tokens required
Cause you don't have to drive, you won't be so tired

Now let's go to a Sox game, after the Cubs are done
And suburban Oak Park, where Hemingway is fun

I'm standing in Lincoln Park, waiting to board the Purple Line
And get off at Evanston, Wilmette is also fine

Cause out on the edge of the Loop, there comes the L train
Oh L train take this tourist, over Chicago streets

The L Train sounding louder
Hop on the L train
Come on now L train
The L train sounding better

Everyone jump on the L train
Come on now L train
Come on Come on Come on Come on
