The Lyrics

This song is about Secaucus Junction, New Jersey Transit's commuter rail hub in the Hudson County borough of Secaucus, and a guy who must transfer there to reach his intended destination.
Feeling low
'Cause of work, you know
I have to go
To get back where I belong
In the Meadowlands of Hudson County
Where development meets nature's bounty
There's a new place where people go to
To transfer between different lines
They take the train for a couple miles
Then transfer in New Jersey style
I want to get to Hoboken
And dance 'til break of day
It's a junction where 10 commuter lines meet
If you're traveling through Jersey, it can't be beat
Coming from Suffern? Forget your care
Heading out of Trenton? You won't find me there
That's not my town, I'm heading for
Secaucus Junction now
(Instrumental)
Feeling low
From work, you know
I have to go
Back west where I belong
In the Meadowlands of Hudson County
By now, you already might have found me
At this transfer point where people go
To catch trains all over N.J.
If you head out from New York a couple miles
You'll come here, but it might not make you smile
I'm going to Hoboken where my friends and I
Are going to dance until break of day
At this junction, it just can't be beat
it's where ten commuter rail lines meet
Its true function is to connect New Jersey
Coming from Suffern? Forget your care
Heading down the Jersey Shore? I could go there
I'm heading out of town, but I'm still at
Secaucus Junction now
Secaucus Junction now

As the leading New Jerseyan on this site, I can tell you there's fives coming your way, but they're stalled in the tunnel under the Hudson. Maybe if Governor Blob had allowed the new tunnels...
