Lyrics:

Ride That Train (Ode To Rosie Ruiz)

She crossed the finish line in record time
When I saw that girl, I fell in love
I was down that day, feelin super zero
It takes work to cheat, she became my hero

I wanna ride that train
Like Rosie Ruiz did

Nineteen-eighty was a suspect year
Nothin' tricklin' down, no more billy beer
Here comes Rosie in her subway shoes
Not a scuff on them and shes' on the news

I wanna ride that train
Like Rosie Ruiz did

Could such a girl be true to me?
If only somewhat conditionally
Or would I be another scam?
A royal goat, a tender lamb
Or would she give a cut a to me?
We'd be stars, get shit for free
We could run a bank
Into the ground
And get bailed out
Make our mommas proud


Its not whether you win or lose
Its where you place the blame

I wanna ride that train
Like Rosie Ruiz did
