The Lyrics

A typical night on New Jersey Transit....and they're about to raise our fares!
Track 24!

I'm on the 5:17
The conductor is mean
And the guy sitting next to me likes to stare
The train's slowing down to a standstill
Now my train's just standing there

So, impatiently
We wait. Next to me
That guy is starting to stink up the air
Oh, why did I rush for the local?
'Cause my train's just standing there

It stopped with a lurch
Right next to a church
And it hasn't moved for hours....

Oh this dragged on all night
Then out went the lights
Now that guy is getting just a bit too friendly
Oh telecommuting sounds lovely
'Cause my train's just standing there
Because my train's just standing there
Oh yes my train's just standing there
Song parody by Mason "attention passengers" Resnick

Happens on the MARC in Maryland, too. There's an Amtrak which leaves just before my regular train, and it often has problems, thus holding us up because we're stuck behind it.

I can relate. I commuted for years on Boston's M.B.T.A.

Hey, I was on a Northeast Corridor train this morning and was stuck in the NJ Meadowlands for about 45 minutes. No announcements, nothin. At least the guy sitting next to me was well behaved!

Sounds like many a CTA (Chicago Transit Authority) trip that I have taken!

Mason: We're still paying for Tom Kean's budget mess, five Governors later. (Florio, Whitman, DiFrancesco, McGreevey, Codey) And just try getting from Penn Station to New Brunswick between 5:30 and 7! What the hell, it still beats the bus. Steve K: Does that mean MARC "echhhh"s the spot? Johnny D: Ever met a guy named Charlie on a tragic and fateful day? (I've been trying to parody THAT song for years, even before I found Amiright.) QC79: I've been stuck in the Meadowlands for much longer than that. (The Devil you say?) And the Net. Agri: I was in Chicago Memorial Day weekend 1999, when they made the switch from tokens to fare-cards. I was really mad, 'cause I had tokens left over from my last visit. Did you know that "The Chicago Transit Authority" was the original name of a certain band? But Mayor Daley (the father, not the son) threatened to sue, and so they became just "Chicago." Unfortunately, they eventually became, for all intents and purposes, The Peter Cetera Band...

Thanks for everyone's comments. Looks like us NJ Transit riders are not alone. Hey QC--I think I was the guy sitting next to you on that delayed train, quietly writing parodies...thanks for the kind words...Michael Pacholek: yeah tell me about it! Kristof Robertson: British Rail has used chewing gum? Wow! NJ Transit would kill for such luxury, if it only had the budget! :-)
