Lyrics ANOTHER HUNDRED PEOPLE
JUST GOT OFF OF THE TRAIN
AND CAME UP THROUGH THE GROUND
WHILE ANOTHER HUNDRED PEOPLE
JUST GOT OFF OF THE BUS
AND ARE LOOKING AROUND
AT ANOTHER HUNDRED PEOPLE
WHO GOT OFF OF THE PLANE
AND ARE LOOKING AT US
WHO GOT OFF OF THE TRAIN
AND THE PLANE AND THE BUS
MAYBE YESTERDAY.

IT'S A CITY OF STRANGERS,
SOME COME TO WORK,
SOME TO PLAY.
A CITY OF STRANGERS,
SOME COME TO STARE,
SOME TO STAY,
AND EV'RY DAY
THE ONES WHO STAY

CAN FIND EACH OTHER
IN THE CROWDED STREETS
AND THE GUARDED PARKS,
BY THE RUSTY FOUNTAINS
AND THE DUSTY TREES
WITH THE BATTERED BARKS,
AND THEY WALK TOGETHER
PAST THE POSTERED WALLS
WITH THE CRUDE REMARKS.

AND THEY MEET AT PARTIES
THROUGH THE FRIENDS
OF FRIENDS
WHO THEY HARDLY KNOW.
WILL YOU PICK ME UP
OR DO I MEET YOU THERE
OR SHALL WE LET IT GO?
DID YOU GET MY MESSAGE
'CAUSE I LOOKED IN VAIN?
CAN WE SEE EACH OTHER
TUESDAY,
IF IT DOESN'T RAIN?
LOOK, I'LL CALL YOU
IN THE MORNING
OR MY SERVICE
WILL EXPLAIN.

AND ANOTHER HUNDRED PEOPLE
JUST GOT OFF OF THE TRAIN.

ANOTHER HUNDRED PEOPLE
JUST GOT OFF OF THE TRAIN
AND CAME UP
THROUGH THE GROUND
WHILE ANOTHER HUNDRED PEOPLE
JUST GOT OFF OF THE BUS
AND ARE LOOKING AROUND
AT ANOTHER HUNDRED PEOPLE
WHO GOT OFF OF THE PLANE
AND ARE LOOKING AT US
WHO GOT OFF OF THE TRAIN
AND THE PLANE AND THE BUS
MAYBE YESTERDAY.

IT'S A CITY OF STRANGERS,
SOME COME TO WORK,
SOME TO PLAY.
A CITY OF STRANGERS,
SOME COME TO STARE,
SOME TO STAY,
AND EV'RY DAY
SOME GO AWAY.

OR THEY FIND EACH OTHER
IN THE CROWDED STREETS
AND THE GUARDED PARKS,
BY THE RUSTY FOUNTAINS
AND THE DUSTY TREES
WITH THE BATTERED BARKS,
AND THEY WALK TOGETHER
PAST THE POSTERED WALLS
WITH THE CRUDE REMARKS.

AND THEY MEET AT PARTIES
THROUGH THE FRIENDS
OF FRIENDS
WHO THEY HARDLY KNOW.
WILL YOU PICK ME UP
OR DO I MEET YOU THERE
OR SHALL WE LET IT GO?
DID YOU GET MY MESSAGE
'CAUSE I LOOKED IN VAIN?
CAN WE SEE EACH OTHER
TUESDAY,
IF IT DOESN'T RAIN?
LOOK, I'LL CALL YOU
IN THE MORNING
OR MY SERVICE WILL EXPLAIN.

AND ANOTHER HUNDRED PEOPLE
JUST GOT OFF OF THE TRAIN.

AND ANOTHER HUNDRED PEOPLE
JUST GOT OFF OF THE TRAIN
AND ANOTHER HUNDRED PEOPLE
JUST GOT OFF OF THE TRAIN
AND ANOTHER HUNDRED PEOPLE
JUST GOT OFF OF THE TRAIN
AND ANOTHER HUNDRED PEOPLE
JUST GOT OFF OF THE TRAIN!
