The Lyrics

I’ll turn the stile for you
on the Green Line.

The train’s about to rumble through
on it’s ridin’
Charlie, high he’s ridin’.

But he can’t abandon
the car, ’cause he’s down
and out—short a nickel,
so he’s damned to ride all over town.

And so his style is “blue,”
stuck on those lines,
“T” lines.

So we view
train come through.
Charlie’s screwed—
no can do an out now.
He’s stuck on there
for eternity
as the trains plow
under streets

Poor guy the stile went through. . .
stuck on the lines.

Two bad he didn't have a crooked six-pence; he would have avoided the crooked stile...

I'm just about ready to go out and vote, and since I'm still undecided, I'm gonna write-in George O'Brian.
