I'M A LITTLE RED CABOOSE
(Unknown)
MADDOX BROS. AND ROSE (COLUMBIA 21155, 1953)

I'm a little red caboose on the choo-choo train of love
Since the day you had to give my heart a shove
Since you are the engine dear
Will you please don't wreck the train
I'll be right behind the engine once again
Since you have the throttle dear
You can let your whistle blow
The track is getting ponderous, so take it kinda slow
I'm a little red caboose on the choo-choo train of love
But you're still the one I'm dreaming of

I'm a little red caboose and I'm bringin' up the rear
All the other girls have got ahead of me
When you ask me for a date
You can bet it's always late
But you say that's the way it had to be
I am just a substitute on the second team of love
You date me when the other girls have given you a shove
I'm a little red caboose and I'm feeling kinda low
'Cause you say I'm your love and that ain't so

I'm a little red caboose and I'm draggin' far behind
I wonder why you treat me like you do
I know you're a lot of fun, but I'm always on the run
When I see you making eyes at someone new
You give me the run-around
And you'll never settle down
You like to flirt and act as though you take me for a clown
I'm a little red caboose on the choo-choo train of love
But you're still the one I'm dreaming of
