Mystery on the night train

There’s a mystery on the night train
Nobody knows who’s done it
Every night someone disappears
Who is it, who is it?

It’s been happening for days now
Said an escapist of the train, mysterious and hectic
There’s no hope for them sir
Think again… for in front him was a detective

There’s a mystery on the night train
Nobody knows who’s done it
Every night someone disappears
Who is it, who is it?

Every night at nine sir
It all starts at nine
The detective was in a daze, watching people board
For it was the culprit he tried to find

There’s a mystery on the night train
Nobody knows who’s done it
Every night someone disappears
Who is it, who is it?

He’d been tracking it down for days now
Disguised as (for it was christmas) Santa with a hat
He knew that once he stepped onto the train
there’d be no turning back

There’s a mystery on the night train
Nobody knows who’s done it
Every night someone disappears
Who is it, who is it?

Normal people, normal chairs
It looked as much like a regular train
Until he saw the Train Driver
That one guy was quite strange

There’s a mystery on the night train
Nobody knows who’s done it
Every night someone disappears
Who is it, who is it?

He wore a black suit with a red tie
Which he looked like he couldn’t afford
And one other thing, he got around very fast
For unusually he carried a skate board

There’s a mystery on the night train
Nobody knows who’s done it
Every night someone disappears
Who is it, who is it?

The detective sat dow on one of the seats
Then looked at his watch for the time
It was eight thirty, then he remembered what the escapist said,
Every night at nine…

There’s a mystery on the night train
Nobody knows who’s done it
Every night someone disappears
Who is it, who is it?

He looked at his watch again
And readied for a fight
It would only be a few seconds now
And then the lights went out

There’s a mystery on the night train
Nobody knows who’s done it
Every night someone disappears
Who is it, who is it?

The next thing he knew
Was that the person next to him was gone
Some were screaming, “Let me out!”
Most were just silent and tried to run

There’s a mystery on the night train
Nobody knows who’s done it
Every night someone disappears
Who is it, who is it?

It took the passengers close to nine
To calm down their fear
And the detective just sat there
With a theory, listening with his ears

There’s a mystery on the night train
Nobody knows who’s done it
Every night someone disappears
Who is it, who is it?

He heard rolling wheels
It was a skateboard
He had a feeling that it was him
Ever since he stepped aboard

There’s a mystery on the night train
Nobody knows who’s done it
Every night someone disappears
Who is it, who is it?

The Train Driver!
