Hello Train

And hello train, it's April fool today.
And when you get here, I know you're going to stay.
Your letter said you'd travel by the 14:30 line
You'll be on the platform running,
Oops, don't you look fine.

And hello train, it's April fool today.
And won't it be nice to feel you smile;
And won't it be nice to feel you loving me.
And hello train, it's April fool today.

And here comes the gardener, funny little man...
He gives me a letter and puts it in my hand.
Fumbling with the envelope, and trying to keep cool
Open up the letter, my my, it's April fool.

And hello train, it's April fool today.
It would have been nice to feel you smile;
It would have been nice to feel you loving me.
And hello train, it's April fool today.

Unwanting to cry, I sigh, I slide away.
And would you believe, the man calls out to stay...
Look over my shoulder, hello he isn't there,
Just a heap of railway clothes and whoops, my girlie's hair.

And hello girl, it's April fool today.
And isn't it nice to feel you smile;
And isn't it nice to feel you loving me.
And hello train, it's April fool today
