CANNONBALL EXPRESS, THE (Al Jacobs / Clifford F. Ferre / Jack Pleis) Peggy Lee - 1950 Lionel Hampton & His Orch. (vocal: Sonny Parker) - 1950 The Cannonball Express built in forty-three A super-duper chug-chug of luxury With private showers and twelve course meals The train had ev'rything, ev'rything but wheels Oh! Cannonball, Oh! Cannonball, Oh! Cannonball Express Except the way they built it, ain't goin' anywhere A hundred people came for the maiden trip They came to ride a choo-choo and take a nip It sure was one o' them champagne deals The corks kept poppin' and no one missed the wheels Oh! Cannonball, Oh! Cannonball, Oh! Cannonball Express Except the way they built it, ain't goin' anywhere (Instrumental Break) They thought the train was movin', but it was still So ev'ryone got off, but against their will And as the passengers all filed out The porters on the train all began to shout Oh! Cannonball, Oh! Cannonball, Oh! Cannonball Express Except the way they built it, ain't goin' anywhere It could'a been the fastest to ride the rails But as it is it can't beat a pack of snails I'd rather see an old man who steals Than one who builds a train and forgets the wheels Oh! Cannonball, Oh! Cannonball, Oh! Cannonball Express Except the way they built it, ain't goin' anywhere (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - April 2012)
