Platform 9

V

The train is late again

As I wait on Platform 9

The train is late again

But the pleasure is all mine

She’s two yards in front of me

And I am 2 behind

I never yet complained all for

The girl on platform 9

Platform 9, Platform 9

The place I like to spend my time

She’s two yards in front of me

And I’m 2 yards behind

Of the girl

On Platform 9

V

Wind is howling in my hair

She always wears a hat

And when the train finally arrives

I know just where she’s sat

But ‘til that train pulls into town

And I see those headlights shine

My morning fresh and evening eyes

Will rest on the girl on platform 9

V

There are days she will be late

But I don’t really mind

I’ll guess what she’ll be wearing

Just to pass the time

And when she’s in her normal place

Just beneath the sign

I’ll never once miss the sight

Of the girl on platform 9
