Lyrics

I can't ever understand Why my life's, been cursed, poisoned, condemned When I been tryin', every night, to hold y'near me But I'm tellin you, it ain't easy

Ever since I been ridin' Ride on the subway train You can hear the whistle blowin' Y'might think I'm insane

And now your friends, they're fillin' up my car But you're so busy readin' Suzy Says, y'can't look now You didn't see your lovers, they're all dressed in rags Y'know y'hid as pushin' up posies, tryin' get y'fed

We was all ridin' Ride on the subway train And you can hear the captain shoutin' He thinks I've gone insane

'Cause I keep ridin' Keep on ridin' 'Cause I keep on ridin', ridin', ridin' Keep on ridin', yeah

You stop and you stare as I'm leavin' my favorite place We have no regards, y'can't find a trace Y'gotta get on back to daddy, tat's all it's gonna be He got the poison black arts of the pimps, but don't y'st- st-

I seen 'em travelin' Ride on the subway train Y'can hear the captain shoutin' He thinks we've all gone insane

'Cause we keep on ridin', ridin', ridin', ridin' 'Cause we keep ridin', ridin', ridin' Keep on ridin'

I think I see the train, I see y'got open track I'm hopin' one of those gonna bring my baby back

Dinah, won't y'blow Dinah, won't y'blow your horn Dinah, won't y'blow Dinah, won't y'blow your horn Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah I know whoa whoa whoa I said someone's in the kitchen with Dinah I know

I keep on ridin', ridin', ridin'
