OSCAR
Wasn’t it Robert Fulton who said
“Life is like a train?”

LILY
No, it wasn’t. He said
“Life is like a boat.”

BRUCE
Wasn’t it Isaac Newton who said
“Life is like a train?”

MRS. PRIMROSE
No, it wasn’t. He said
“Life is like an apple.”

OWEN
Wasn’t it Lord Chesterfield who said
“Life is like a train?”

“Life is like a coat."

OSCAR, LILY, BRUCE, MRS. PRIMROSE, OWEN, OLIVER
Then who said it?
Who said it?

ALL
We did.
We did.
Ha ha ha, ho ho ho
Ha ha ha ha ha
Ho ho ho ho ho
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ho
Ha ha ha ha ho
Life is like a train.
Life is like a train.
Aren’t we lucky to be making the ride together.
Life is like a train
A roaring rushing train
You get on at the beginning
You get off at the end
Along the way, you may find a lover
Along the way, you may find a friend.
In case you didn’t get the cosmic thought that hit our brain
Let us explain once again!
Life is like a train
Life is like a train
Life is like a train
Life is like a train
Life is like a train
Life is
Not like an apple
Life is like a train
Life is like a train
Life is like a train
Life is like a

Life is like a train
Life is not a boat
Life is like a train
Life is not a coat
Life is like a train
(x14)
There’s always a light at the end of a tunnel
There’s always something new round the bend
But this is our philosophy and so it shall remain
Life is like a train
Life is like a train
Life is like a train
Life is like a train!
