The first verse of Electric Trains is;

When I was crowned a mummy's boy by friends I didn't like
I made a meal of trips to school upon my father's bike
I used to sit between his legs, perched on a piece of wood
If it ever rained on us, I'd slip beneath his hood
And at home the radio was on
From Julie Andrews to Jerry Garcia
Life was all fun and games
I was out of my head and underneath my bed
Playing with electric trains
The last verse of the song is;
As people came to sit and stare
While I raced through my songs
The sound of music passed by me
Just like the Grateful Dead
