The Lyrics

when I first heard that song as a child, I thought its name was "Back in the Train AgaIn". Let's hope Chrissie Hynde doesn't get annoyed of this version. I work in an international tech company, and sometimes I need to travel. But suppose if I really did fear flying?
I found a job in the tech - oh, oh oh oh oh
with travelling throughout in this land
To a town in the North - or to Western coast oh oh oh oh
Now I have fear of the filght
I am back on the train -
Oh, back on the train 'gain

A phobia beyond my control - oh oh oh oh
The planes, the airports and the corners of world
Boarding in the aircraft - yes it feels like hell, oh oh oh oh
As my boss tells me it is time to go again
Puts me back on the train -
Oh, back on the train ' gain

How was it be -
That forces me go like I do
I board to my wagon
train is leaving the station soon
I feel the rumble of wheels on the rails
passing houses and towns and farms
seeing woods in their snow veils
- I am away from harms

I like working in tech - oh, oh oh oh oh
These are the busiest days of my life
I like traveling throughout this land, oh oh oh oh
- as long as I am not compel'd to fly...
Now I am back on the train -
Oh, back on the train 'gain.

I always thought Chrissie Hynde was singing it that way until I found out the name of the song. Nice job on the parody.
