The Lyrics

Another Beatles parody. This song is about Amtrak. For anyone outside North America, Amtrak is the passenger railroad owned by the US Federal government. David Gunn is the new president of Amtrak, who's hoping to turn it around! Beech Grove is the main repair facility Amtrak uses
There are some trains they miss so much,
Pioneer, Dessert Wind, Broad-way

He's well acquainted with the touch of decades of neglect
Like a lizard in a wrecked train.
The man with the plan to turn around Amtrak
inside his working head
Speaking with his mouth while his crews are busy
Working overtime
A collection of the proof of neglected cars
That are lying in Beech Grove.

They need a fix 'cause they're too run down.
Down where derailed cars smashed to the ground.
They need a fix 'cause they're too run down.....

Warrington's out so Get the Gunn,
Warrington's out so Get the Gunn,
Warrington's out so Get the Gunn,
Warrington's out so Get the Gunn,
Warrington's out so Get the Gunn,
Warrington's out so Get the Gunn!

Amtrak's Hope is David Gunn
(Honk Honk, Ring Ring)
Amtrak's Hope is David Gunn
When he assumed command,
And he started calling them "passengers" again,
I knew there was hope,
Therefore Amtrak's hope is David Gunn.
Yes it is.
