TESTO

Look at her face, it's a wonderful face
And it means something special to me
Look at the way that she smiles when she sees me
How lucky can one fellow be?

She's just my kind of girl, she makes me feel fine,
Who could ever believe that she could be mine?
She's just my kind of girl, without her I'm blue
And if she ever leaves me what could I do, what could I do?

And when we go for a walk in the park
And she holds me and squeezes my hand
We'll go on walking for hours and talking
About all the things that we plan

She's just my kind of girl, she makes me feel fine,
Who could ever believe that she could be mine?
She's just my kind of girl, without her I'm blue
And if she ever leaves me what could I do, what could I do?

TESTO

Day is dawning and I must go
You're asleep but still I'm sure you'll know
Why it had to end this way
You and I have a groovy time
But I told you somewhere down the line
You would have to find me gone
I just have to move along

Just another town, another train
Waiting in the morning rain
Lord give my restless soul a little patience
Just another town, another train
Nothing lost and nothing gained
Guess I will spend my life in railway stations
Guess I will spend my life in railway stations

When you wake up I know you'll cry
And the words I wrote to say goodbye
They won't comfort you at all
But in time you will undesrtand
That the dreams we dreamed were made of sand
For a no-good bum like me
To live is to be free

Just another town, another train
Waiting in the morning rain
Look in my restless soul, a little patience
Just another town, another train
Nothing lost and nothing gained
Guess I will spend my life in railway stations
Guess I will spend my life in railway stations


COVER

I Nashville Train fecero una cover della canzone negli anni '70, inclusa nel loro album "Abba Our Way".
