1995 Camp Song

Well, let me tell you ‘bout the story of a man named Charlie on a tragic and fateful day. He put ten cents in his pocket kissed his wife and family, went to ride on the MTA.

Chorus: Did he ever return, no he never returned and his fate is still unlearned. He may ride forever ‘neath the streets of Boston he’s the man who never returned.

Charlie handed in his dime at the Kendal Square station and he changed for Jamacia Plain. When he got there the conductor told him one more nickel, Charlie couldn’t get off of that train.

Charlie’s wife goes down to Skulley Square station everyday at quarter past two, and through the open window she hands Charlie a sandwich as the train comes rumblin’ through.

Now you citizens of Boston don’t think its a scandal how the people have to pay and pay. Fight the fare increase vote for Tommy Whitton get poor Charlie off the MTA.
