The Trolley Song

Boom, boom, boom went the track wheels

As we trekked all the way West

Honey, my bunny, leaning my lovey on the rail

‘Til the moment that his face spun my way

Chitter, chatter, banter went all the gossips

But my boots slid through the floor

Bumping my body on the hold-poles

Grabbing the nearest man I can

And I’ll sit beside you while you pipe out

I’ll pretend to read yesterday’s can

Until the moment that this ride is over

Love, glove, dove, you’re my man.


This is the 100 Songs Project, a 100-day writing challenge based on AFI’s 100 Years…100 Songs. Every day, I write a short poem, prose piece, or play based on, reacting to, rejecting, accepting, or doing something related to one of the songs in the top 100 list.
