MAMA FROM THE TRAIN (Written by Irving Gordon) Patti Page - 1956 Throw mama from the train a kiss, a kiss Wave mama from the train a goodbye Throw mama from the train a kiss a kiss And don't cry, my baby, don't cry How I miss that sweet lady with her old-country touch Miss her quaint broken English called *Pennsylvania Dutch* I can still see her there at the station that day Calling out to her baby as the train pulled away Throw mama from the train a kiss, a kiss Dry mama all your tears, won't you try? Throw mama from the train a kiss, a kiss And eat mama up all her pie Can't believe that she's gone now, it's a lonely old town Yet I know that her heavenly love keeps looking down 'cause whenever I happen to be passing through I could swear she was there with the warmth I once knew And I Throw mama from the train a kiss, a kiss Wave mama from the train a goodbye Throw mama from the train a kiss, a kiss And she throws one back from up high *Pennsylvania "Dutch" is truly of German origin from "Deutschland" being thought of as "Dutchland." It varies from standard English in that the word order is markedly different. Other "Pennsylvania Dutch" expressions include "Look the window out and see who the gate comes in" and "Vee are too soon oldt und too late schmart." (Contributed by Bette Carl - May 2002)
