Broadjam Member Reviews

Here's a niche folksong about getting checked before you get on a plane or train. It's pretty funny. Rhymes Drugs with Bugs. Vocal is clear. Nice instrumentation. Great, humorous energy in this tune.

    - Kate Carpenter

I like this song. It has an interesting story to tell and the singer's voice is captivating. The instrumentation is solid and well recorded so that you can hear each instrument. I think this song must be popular with live audiences who can relate to the theme.

VERSE 1
I tried to ride a train today
And buy a ticket at the gate
They put me through a "pirate check"
It was a highly paranoid state
They put me through a microscope
Checked me for guns and drugs
They did a thorough check on me
To see if I was smuggling snakes or bugs

CHORUS
The trains have stopped running
And the bums have stopped bumming
The clicking wheels gave way to better deals
The clicking wheels roll on by

VERSE 2
Then I tried to fly a plane today
Check my suitcase at the door
They put me through a 3-D screen
I was naked from my head down to the floor
Ran their hands up & down my legs
Frisked me for bombs & knives
They did a thorough cavity check
As if I had something dangerous to hide

REPEAT CHORUS

VERSE 3
I tried to buy a car today
Picked one off the showroom floor
Told the man I was paying with cash
So, gas it up and I'll drive it right out the door
Salesman said, "Oh, no, you I can't do that.
You're going to need a government loan.
With all the fancy federal regulations
He said, "A car is something you can never own."

REPEAT CHORUS
