This train is for Cambridge
and I've never been
to either the destination
or the stations in between
a blue upholstered second class seat
and a day return ticket that's only valid off-peak
are my only companions on this two hour ride

This is Waltham Cross
the National Express
stops at every tiny countryside station
calling at Cheshunt and Roydon and Shelford
whenever the train starts or breaks
there's sweets rolling over the carpeting
a spectacle in yellow, red and green

This train is for Cambridge
where I've never been
this train is for Cambridge
where I've never been
this train is for Cambridge
where I've never been
