The man from the television crawled into the train.
I wonder who he's gonna stick it in this time.
Everyone was looking for a little entertainment,
so they'll probably pull his hands off
when they find out his name.
And then they shut down the power all along the line,
and we got stuck in the tunnel where no lights shine.
They got to touching; all the girls were too scared to call out.
Nobody was saying anything at all.

We were waiting for the end of the world,
waiting for the end of the world,
waiting for the end of the world,
Dear Lord, I sincerely hope you're coming
'cause you realiy started something.

Things got back to normal as the train began to roll again.
We got to the station about twenty minutes later.
The legendary hitchhiker says that he knows where it's at.
Now he'd like to go to Spain or somewhere like that,
with his two-tons Bible and his funny cigarettes,
his suntan lotion and his castanets.

He was waiting for the end of the world,
waiting for the end of the world,
waiting for the end of the world.
Dear Lord, I sincerely hope you're coming
'cause you realiy started something.

And then the bride, the groom, the congregation and the priest
all got onto the train when we were three stations east, yeah.
Hiding from a scandal in the national press,
they had been trying to get married since they stole
the wedding dress.
You may see them drowning as you stroll along the beach,
but don't throw out the lifeline 'til they're clean out of reach.
