"The Train"

           
   
1.
With "Whoo, woo, woo!" and "Ding a ding, dong!"
And "All aboard!" shouted, the train starts along.
Ding! Ding-a-ding dong!
Ding! Ding-a-ding dong!
   
           
   
2.
Then "Choo, choo, choo! Choo, Choo!" and Clickety clack!"
As faster and faster, it speeds on the track.
Click! Clickety clack!
Click! Clickety clack!
   
           
    3. Now steadily, swiftly, around the wheels spin,
While on the train rushes with rattle and din.
Zum! How the wheels spin!
Zum! How the wheels spin!
   
           
    4. Then slowly "Choo, choo, choo!" and "Whoo, whoo!" again,
For here is the station and here stops the train.
Haste! Haste from the train!
Haste! Haste from the train!
