G Train

There’s a subway line that all the time
Everybody’s always mocking
But that’s just the words of the idiot herd
‘Cause I think it’s pretty rocking
You’d realize that if you prized
This particular line is one of a kind,
There ain’t nothing like the G.
People laugh and say that it should try to go somewhere
But the G Train does it’s own thing, it doesn’t really care

Oh wait, I thought it was coming there for a second.
Guess we gotta wait on the platform
That’s all right, that’s all right.

“The G Train takes forever to come”
That means it’s just reclusive
“But it’s half the size of other trains”
That just makes it’s exclusive
“The G Train is just too darn slow,
“When’s it gonna come?” Pssh, you don’t know?
“The G Train doesn’t even go to the city!”
No bridge and tunnel crowd? What a pity.
If the G Train doesn’t go there it’s no place that I want to be
You can have the main lines I’ll be riding on the G

This is where it’s at, man, on the G Train
We don’t go to Manhattan, no we refrain
There’s no other subway line that matches
It’s not for the masses, it’s transit in small batches.

That’s right, this is artisanal transit right here.
Each ride is unique.
Know what I’m sayin’?

They say the G Train goes nowhere,
Well, I’ve got to beg your pardon
Green Point, Gowanus, Fort Greene,
Bedford Stuy and Carroll Gardens
The G Train will get you there
Tho it might take a while
But when you finally get there
You’re someplace that’s got style
It’s all about Brooklyn and a little bit of Queens
And people who have yet to let this city kill their dreams

All the girls are cuter on the G Train
They’re not mindless commuters with little pea brains
It’s a challenge so the riders must be able
It’s unknown and unstable, like it’s on an indie label

You don’t have to dress up for the G Train
There’s no one to impress so you’ve got free rein
On the G Train you can be however you feel
The G Train keeps it real, it’s like a dive bar on wheels

Riding on the G Train.
No man, we’re taking the G. We’re not going into Manhattan just to come back out.
Riding on the G Train.
Aw! It’s at the other end of the platform! Run!
Riding on the G Train.
Ooh, let’s get out here, this is my pirogue spot!
Riding on the G Train.
It’s not really Queens, it’s Long Island City, that’s like Kenosha.
Riding on the G Train.
Ogee! Ogee! Ha ha, get it?
Riding on the G Train.
No, not “OG,” “Ogee,” like from Magilla Gorilla. You don’t know Magilla Gorilla?
Riding on the G Train.
You don’t… get off the G Train!
Wait, it just stopped?
