The Steam Train

The Steam Train lyrics

The Steam Train

You don't know me, but you will
Let me introduce myself

Submitted for your approval
A picture of basketball
The man with the muscle
And the man with the moves

Submitted for your approval
The man who's too fast to fall
The man who can hustle
And the man who can fly
Who always is hot
When it's time for the shot

?Cause at any time you want me at all
Any rhyme or reason
Brother, I'm the brother you call to play
Spring or summer,
Winter or fall
Any time or season
Catch the boy who's moving the ball away

It's called a steam train
Coming down the track
Better watch your step
Better watch your back
Can't you see the shadow
Fast and black
And the steam train's rolling by

Steam train chuggin' down the hill
If you don't move now then you never will
He's on your tail and he's in for the kill
Then the steam train's rolling by

.
.
.
Listen, I have got my hands on the wheel
Someone's got to see us
Taking all the train's got to steal away
Watch me as I sign up a deal
With Nike and Adidas
All the world is starting to feel the waves

From the steam train coming down the track
Better watch your step
Better watch your back
Better keep your eyeballs open, Jack
When the steam train's rolling by

Steam train chuggin' down the hill
If you want to live
Better don't stand still
He's on the move
And he's in for the kill
And the steam train's rolling by

You don't know me. The last time I saw my father I was five years old.
He hadn't been home for two months. He came into the
apartment at 3 o'clock in the morning, set fire to the drapes and carpets
and then woke up me and my sister, carried us outside,
then walked away while we watched the house burn down.
You don't know me, but you will.

A new world just across the river
A new world where I'll have it all
A new world just around the corner
Here it comes
Here it comes

.

You don't know me. There were 12 boys in my 5th grade class at Sojourner Truth.
4 of them are in jail, 6 of them are dead, and
Gordon Conners works at Twin Donut on 125th Street.
You don't know me, but you will.
