    ]here i sit on a train again
    here i'm high on that train again
    chocolate mound brown - willow breeze sound
    riding sigh high on the train again

    It's the A train - hip high A train
    and the col train....mellow col trane
    BIRDlike sound trane/train

    singing on A train again
    life is high on the train again
    man passed by asking for a match!
    fire, hey, on a train again

    STRAY HORN......Play!
    on that train again...

    human forms...fears unfold...life is BOLD
    stepping in...musty smells...down below
    in heavens hell

    Hey riding and colloding
    on the long trane/train/terrain/traaaaaain/that traine/trane/
    on The Trane
    on A train ..again
