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.
