Take A Trip - The Shakin

Take A Trip

The Shakin' Pyramids

(The Shakin' Pyramids, VIRGIN, 1981)

Like me, you're on the run once more
You got worries by the score
You don't know why you did it
You're shouldn't like a bad hit
You better pack your bags
And make a bee-line for the station
Take a trip, take a trip, take a trip on the train
Trip-trip-trip-trip, oh baby I'm the same
Don't be confused, no time to lose
You gotta get to her, but you can't afford the fare

But you gave all you got, it wasn't very hard
You made it on the train by the skin of your teeth
Everything's fine, we're rollin' down the line
You got to be there in one hour's time
Take a trip, take a trip, take a trip on the train
Trip-trip-trip-trip, oh baby I'm the same
You're sweatin' like a pig
You say you're feelin' sick
A dose of rockin' reeferbilly I bet is gonna do the trick

Well, it ain't helpin' to get in line
'Cause it's the only chance you got
They won't let you in when you're on the run
The man in blue has gotta have some fun
(C'mon boys...)

Poor you, you might get shot
Better keep movin' or you're gonna get caught
Don't look around, you might hit the ground
You better do it quick and make it out of town
Take a trip, take a trip, take a trip on the train
Trip-trip-trip-trip, oh baby I'm the same
You say you're feelin' sick
You're sweatin' like a pig
Old rockin' reeferbilly I bet is gonna do the trick
Take a trip, take a trip, take a trip on the train
Trip-trip-trip-trip, oh baby I'm the same
Take a trip, a trip, a trip on the train
Trip-trip-trip-trip, oh baby I'm the same
Take a trip, a trip, a trip on the train
Trip-trip-trip-trip, oh baby I'm the same
Take a trip, a trip, a trip on the train
Trip-trip-trip-trip, oh baby I'm the same
Yeah, I'm the same
Oh, I'm the same
But it's the end of the game!
