It's a mean engineerman
But the fireman is really good
It's a mean engineerman
But the fireman is really good
Has taken my baby
An I can't stay in this neighborhood

Sometime, it make me feel like travelin'
People, from place to place
Sometime, it makes me feel like travelin'
People, from place to place
An I'm wondering if I will ever
See my baby's face

Engineerman, engineerman
I hope your train will jump the track
Engineerman, engineerman
I hope your train will jump the track
'Ah, play it for me'
You's a dirty mistreater
Won't bring my baby back

I hear the train whistle blowin'
An it really does worry me
I hear the train whistle blowin'
An it really does worry me
It has got me all upset
An no peace can I see

I love you, baby
But I have almost give you up
I love you, baby
But I have almost give you up
You have treated me dirty
But I hope you all the luck.
