The distant echo of faraway voices boarding faraway trains To take them home to the ones that they love and who love them forever The glazed, dirty steps - repeat my own and reflect my thoughts Cold and uninviting, partially naked Except for toffee wrapers and this morning's paper Mr. Jones got run down Headlines of death and sorrow - they tell of tomorrow Madmen on the rampage And I'm down in the tube station at midnight I fumble for change - and pull out the Queen Smiling, beguiling I put in the money and pull out a plum Behind me Whispers in the shadows - gruff blazing voices Hating, waiting Hey boy they shout - have you got any money? And I said - I've a little money and a take away curry, I'm on my way home to my wife. She'll be lining up the cutlery, You know she's expecting me Polishing the glasses and pulling out the cork And I'm down in the tube station at midnight I first felt a fist, and then a kick I could now smell their breath They smelt of pubs and Wormwood Scrubs And too many right wing meetings My life swam around me It took a look and drowned me in its own existence The smell of brown leather It blended in with the weather It filled my eyes, ears, nose and mouth It blocked all my senses Couldn't see, hear, speak any longer And I'm down in the tube station at midnight I said I was down in the tube station at midnight The last thing that I saw As I lay there on the floor Was Jesus Saves painted by an atheist nutter And a British Rail poster read Have an Awayday - a cheap holiday Do it today! I glanced back on my life And thought about my wife 'Cause they took the keys - and she'll think it's me And I'm down in the tube station at midnight The wine will be flat and the curry's gone cold I'm down in the tube station at midnight Don't want to go down in a tube station at midnight

DOWN IN THE TUBE STATION AT MIDNIGHT The Jam 1978


Seduto con le mani in mano Sopra una panchina fredda del metro Sei lì che aspetti quello delle 7.30 Chiuso dentro il tuo palteot Un tizio legge attento le istruzioni Sul distributore del caffè E un bambino che si tuffa dentro a un bignè E l'orologio contro il muro Segna l'una e dieci da due anni in qua Il nome di questa stazione É mezzo cancellato dall'umidità Un poster che qualcuno ha già scarabocchiato Dice "Vieni in Tunisia" C'è un mare di velluto ed una palma E tu che sogni di fuggire via... Di andare lontano lontano Andare lontano lontano Di andare lontano lontano Andare lontano lontano E da una radiolina accesa Arrivano le note di un'orchestra jazz Un vecchio con gli occhiali spessi un dito Cerca la risoluzione a un quiz Due donne stan parlando Con le braccia piene di sacchetti dell'Upim E un giornale è aperto Sulla pagina dei films E sui binari quanta vita che è passata E quanta che ne passerà E due ragazzi stretti stretti Che si fan promesse per l'eternità Un uomo si lamenta ad alta voce Del governo e della polizia E tu che intanto sogni ancora Sogni sempre sogni di fuggire via Di andare lontano lontano Andare lontano lontano Di andare lontano lontano Andare lontano lontano Sei li che aspetti quello delle 7.30 Chiuso dentro il tuo paletot Seduto sopra una panchina fredda del metro

POSTER Claudio Baglioni 1978


« Una locomotiva a vapore scarlatta era ferma lungo un binario gremito di gente. Un cartello alla testa del treno diceva "Espresso per Hogwarts, ore 11". Harry si guardò indietro e, là dove prima c'era il tornello, vide un arco in ferro battuto, con su scritto "Binario Nove e Tre Quarti". Ce l'aveva fatta. »

All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go I'm standin' here outside your door I hate to wake you up to say goodbye But the dawn is breakin', it's early morn The taxi's waitin', he's blowin' his horn Already I'm so lonesome I could die So kiss me and smile for me Tell me that you'll wait for me Hold me like you'll never let me go 'Cause I'm leaving on a jet plane I don't know when I'll be back again Oh, babe, I hate to go There's so many times I've let you down So many times I've played around I'll tell you now, they don't mean a thing Every place I go, I think of you Every song I sing, I sing for you When I come back I'll wear your wedding ring So kiss me and smile for me Tell me that you'll wait for me Hold me like you'll never let me go 'Cause I'm leaving on a jet plane I don't know when I'll be back again Oh, babe, I hate to go Now the time has come to leave you One more time, oh, let me kiss you And close your eyes and I'll be on my way Dream about the days to come When I won't have to leave alone About the times that I won't have to say ... Oh, kiss me and smile for me Tell me that you'll wait for me Hold me like you'll never let me go 'Cause I'm leaving on a jet plane I don't know when I'll be back again Oh, babe, I hate to go And I'm leaving on a jet plane I don't know when I'll be back again Oh, babe, I hate to go But I'm leaving on a jet plane
