Lyrics

Trainspotters
Tim, he goes out every day to Darlington railway
To watch the trains go by and you may wonder why
It's just a waste of time
Does Timmy know the score?
Does Timmy know much more?

You've considered them the wrong way now
You've considered him the wrong way
You've considered them the wrong way now
You've considered him the wrong way

This is a club of just wanna be rogues with anoraks, cords
And their inspector brogues and Timmy gets up at
The dawn every morning packs his lunch book and camera
While he is still yawning, and
He's off to fulfill his life's great fascination
He's off to trainspot at the great railway station

Tim, he goes to platform 3 to see if he can see
The Glasgow train appear and hopes maybe he'll hear
The shunting horn again
Nostalgia is his friend Nostalgia is his friend

You've considered them the wrong way now
You've considered him the wrong way
You've considered them the wrong way now
You've considered him the wrong way

For them there is nothing much better to see
than a northern bound train with a serial B3
A fifty year old Brighton 22 ton
Listen, thanks Mr. Stephenson
Thanks Mr. Stephenson
He's off to fulfill his life's great fascination
He's off to trainspot at the great railway station
