lyrics M.T.A.

These are the times that try men's souls
In the course of our nation's history the people of
Boston have rallied bravely whenever the rights of men have been threatened
Today a new crisis has arisen
The Metropolitan Transit
Authority better known as the M.T.A.
Is attempting to levy a burdensome tax on the
Population in the form of a subway fare increase
Citizens hear me out this could happen to you
Well let me tell you of the story of a
Man named Charlie on a tragic and fateful day
He put ten cents in his pocket kissed his wife and family went to ride on the M.T.A.
Well did he ever return no he never returned and his fate is still unlearned
He may ride forever 'neath the streets of Boston
He's the man who never returned
Charlie handed in his dime at the Kendall Square station
And he changed for Jamaica Plain
When he got there the conductor told him one more
Nickel Charlie couldn't get off of that train
But did he ever return no he never returned and his fate is still unlearned
He may ride forever 'neath the streets of Boston
He's the man who never returned
Now all night long
Charlie rides through
The station cryin' what will become of me
How can I afford to see my sister in Chelsea or my cousin in Roxbury
But did he ever return no he never returned and his fate is still unlearned
He may ride forever 'neath the streets of Boston
He's the man who never returned
Charlie's wife goes down to the Sculley Square station every day at quarter past two
And through the open window she hands Charlie a sandwich
As the train comes rumblin' through
But did he ever return no he never returned and his fate is still unlearned
He may ride forever 'neath the streets of Boston
He's the man who never returned
Pick it Davey
Now you citizens of Boston don't you think it's a scandal
How the people have to pay and pay
Fight the fare increase vote for George O' Brien get poor Charlie off the M.T.A.
Or else he'll never return no he'll never return and his fate is still unlearned
He may ride forever 'neath the streets of Boston
He's the man who never returned
He's the man who never returned
He's the man who never returned
M.T.A. Charlie
