The Lyrics

On February 25th of this year, Wabtec snagged the locomotive business of General Electric.
[[1st Verse:]]
There went GE and Wabtec
Unifying as one
Making train engines as one
Ain't that a colossus?
Ain't that, ain't that amazing
Bigger than next door EMD
Spreading efficiency everywhere
This was a great big reality ain't it
The way it cleans the air

[[2nd Verse:]]
Some railfans are so sad
We may now see that
GE may not make engines
Under its name no more
Nothing lasts forever, no
It's very normal for
Firms to spin off their chunks
But GE Transportation will still
Be remembered, yes

[[3rd Verse:]]
Too sad to see GE go.
It was a great big firm
We still remember it well
GE has been married
While GE may be no more
I still love their great GEVOs
But something must come to an end
And after one hundred twelve great years
Some railfans might be teared

[[1st Verse(first four lines only:)]]

May rest in peace GE Rail.

Wabtec has just took its place.
(That's right)

But it's all about pure efficiency!

May you rest in peace, GE.

This is even funnier in hindsight now that Tempur Sealy has bought Mattress Firm. I am sure Captain Copy/Paste will have a field day writing about the Tempur Sealy/Mattress Firm deal. Or better yet, he should take on that “Red Eye Radio” segment about the last day of high school. That way there’s actually something funny to read.
