Lyrics

Tin toy clockwork train
Driving all around your brain
Take you there and back again
In a tin toy clockwork train,
Tin toy clockwork train

The driver is a toad whose eyes
Are painted on his cheeks
Pulling on a whistle made of candy cane
Climb aboard and we can all go tripping
To a place where everything is sublime
You'll arrive before the past has happened
Get you back on time

Tin toy clockwork train
Driving all around your brain
Take you there and back again
In a tin toy clockwork train,
Tin toy clockwork train

The guardsman is a chimp
Who's waving his electric flags
The tickets are collected by a wind-up man
Climb aboard and we all can go tripping
To a station at the back of your head
Signals change and now we're all unzipping
Next stop feather bed

(Come on, hurry up, get on board, look out, hold on top)

Tin toy clockwork train
Driving all around your brain
Take you there and back again
In a tin toy clockwork train,
Tin toy clockwork train

Tin toy clockwork train
Driving all around your brain
Take you there and back again
In a tin toy clockwork train,
Tin toy clockwork train
