The Lyrics

Down around the corner
is the railroad line
where those long trains running
and scream while passing by

without sleep -
I'm rolling in my bed
Without sleep!

Be passengers or cargo
for me it's like bad dream
when that long train's running
it makes a lot of scream -

without sleep -
my kids awake at three (a.-a.-a.-m.)
Without sleep -

The basement, it will rumble
and stuff on shelves will fall
I know it's long train running
when I hear that lonesome call -

without sleep!
My hubby's p*s*ed off now!
Without sleep -

It may be Inter-City
it may as well be freight -
when you're not asleep at four o'clock
you know they're running late

without sleep -
I'm tired as I can be
Without sleep...

It may be Inter-City
it may as well be freight -
when you're not asleep at four o'clock
you know they're running late

without sleep -
I'm tired as I can be
Without sleep...

When the pistons keep on turning
and the wheels go round and round
and the steel rails are cold and hard
- they make a nasty sound!

without sleep -
I hadn't at all that night!
Without sleep!

My grandmother lived across the street from a railroad crossing, so I can sympathize. Never figured out how she could deal with it.

There is a house in my town with a For Sale sign. It is about 10 meters from the main line of the Union Pacific. It will take a deaf railfan to buy that place.

I love the sound of trains at night - but they are not real close. Had one right outside a hotel room once - the bed vibrated every time it went by!
