Lyrics

Stranded again (Ah) Beached again (Ah) Washed up on the shore like driftwood in Chicago Like garbage in Chicago (Ah) Swindled again (Ah) Screwed again Cheated out of two weeks' wages in Chicago Plus car fare from Chicago Ah, ah, ah Stranded again Beached again Cheated and misused Abandoned and abused By a master Disaster In Chicago! Saddle up the horse without delay Ship Ahoy! We sail at break of day Ours not to question, ours not to reason Ours to obey Back at the hotel, I'll keep 'em busy at the desk! I'll sneak the bags out the back Right! Let down the drawbridge while you keep the motor racing Maybe we'll have to swim the river Working for Jaffee, though continually bracing Also destroys the heart and liver! What's new today? We're gonna sneak away Through a shower of rotten eggs With our tails between our legs On the Twentieth Century The Twentieth Century In Drawing Room "A"! Hey! Hey! Hey! We point with the deepest pride To the grandest ride On the New York Central Railroad The aristocrat of locomotive trains New York in sixteen hours Anything can happen in those sixteen hours On that mighty, ride-the-night-y Miracle of engineering brains (On the mighty miracle of brains) On the Twentieth Century (On the Twentieth Century) On the Twentieth Century (On the Twentieth Century) On the luxury liner of locomotive trains! (Ah, luxury liner of locomotive trains) Our heart with emotion reels When the Prince of wheels Starts to make its daily journey Either Chi-N.Y Or else N.Y. to Chi New York in sixteen hours Anything can happen in those sixteen hours As in flight across the night America the Beautiful rolls by (America the Beautiful rolls by) On the Twentieth Century (On the Twentieth Century) On the Twentieth Century (On the Twentieth Century) On the luxury liner between N.Y. and Chi Life and love and luck may be changed Hope renewed and fate rearranged On the Twentieth Century (On the Twentieth Century) On the Twentieth Century (On the Twentieth Century) On the luxury liner between N.Y. and Chi Life and love and luck may be changed Hope renewed and fate rearranged On the Twentieth Century (On the Twentieth Century) On the Twentieth Century (On the Twentieth Century) On the luxury liner between N.Y. and Chi
