Song Lyrics:
On the boat express I ride, see us every day
Flashing by the countryside, picking flowers on the way

Once a wedding pair didn’t seem to care; they were full of love I guess
And the honeymoon started far too soon on the Wigan Boat Express.

A chap one day, with a girl got gay, I saw them both caress
She got what for in the corridor on the Wigan Boat Express.

When we shunt the back’s in front and the front part’s in the rear
If we survive, then we’ll arrive alongside Wigan Pier.

Cried a lady, "Oo bring a doctor do, I think I’m in distress."
She was feeling shocks in a signal box on the Wigan Boat Express.

On a steep incline one day, the train was standing still.
I said we can’t wait here all day so we pushed it up the hill.
If it’s wet or fine, we start at nine, we’re prompt I must confess.
And by half-past one, two miles we’ve done on the Wigan Boat Express.

Once a chap I saw on the engine floor, he’d gone to sleep I guess
But he woke to find a tender behind on the Wigan Boat Express.

Now when we shunt the back’s in front and the front part’s in the rear
If we survive then we’ll arrive alongside Wigan Pier.

Mrs. Brown looked swell but sad to tell on the door she tore her dress
And the sun shone gay through the permanent way on the Wigan Boat Express.

Now when we shunt the back’s in front and the front part’s in the rear
If we survive, then we’ll arrive alongside Wigan Pier.

In the sleeping car, they go too far, all mixed up more or less
But they rearrange when I shout "All change" on the Wigan Boat Express.
