Rick Rack Lyrics

Artist: Gerry Rafferty
Album: Can I Have My Money Back? [Expanded]

Rick rack, rickety rack
See the train go along the track
When I grow up I want to be an engine driver
But if I can€™t be that I€™ll be a deep sea diver.

My father says that I must always work on the land
And I never disagreed when I€™d see him lift his hand
Mother thinks that I should be a carpenter to trade
That I could fill my house with the things that I had made.

Rick rack, rickety rack
See the train go along the track
When I grow up I want to be an engine driver
But if I can€™t be that I€™ll be a deep sea diver.

I look at the skies, see the birds that can fly, and I feel like cryin€™
Like a bird on the tree I just want to free so I€™ll keep on tryin€™.

Rick rack, rickety rack
See the train go along the track
When I grow up I want to be an engine driver
But if I can€™t be that I€™ll be a deep sea diver.

My brother says that I must pay attention at the school
Because I€™ve never won a prize, he thinks that I€™m a fool
Teacher always asks me why I look so far away
It€™s just that I find nothing in the words he has to say.

Rick rack, rickety rack
I€™m leaving home and I€™m never coming back
I€™m on my way to be an engine driver
But if I can€™t be that I€™ll be a deep sea diver.
