Light At The End Of The Tunnel
Andrew Lloyd Webber/Richard Stilgoe
Poppa:
Diesel is for unbelievers. Electricity is wrong.
Steam has got the power that will pull us along
There's a light at the end of the tunnel
There's a light at the end of the tunnel
The inside might be as black as the night

All:
But there's a light at the end of the tunnel
There's a light at the end of the tunnel
The inside might be as black as the night
But at the end of the tunnel there's a light.

Poppa:
It's the power of James Watt, the steaming Scot

All:
The man sho watched the pot and said "Hey, I've got
A brilliant plot: when the steam is hot
It seems to make a lot of power"

Poppa:
It could turn a wheel

All:
Lots of power

Poppa:
It could drive it down a track

All:
Clickety clack, clickety clack

Poppa:
It could drive it with a beat

All:
Choo-choo-choo
With enough left over for a
Whoo-whoo!
He saw the light at the end of the tunnel
I said he saw the light at the end of the tunnel

Poppa:
Thanks James Watt

All:
Thank you Mr. Watt

Poppa:
For watching the pot

All:
He saw a light at the end of the tunnel
He saw a light at the end of the tunnel
The inside might be s black as the night
But at the end of the tunnel there's a light.

Poppa:
There are dark days ahead
When the power goes dead.
When the oil runs dry
What can we try?

All:
We could use the sunlight

Poppa:
But it don't shine at night.

All:
Nuclear fission
Leaves a nasty emission.

Poppa:
Soon the pistons will be humming
Steam will have a second coming

All:
We saw light at the end of the tunnel
We saw light at the end of the tunnel
Just dig a hole and haul out the coal
We saw light at the end of the tunnel
We saw light at the end of the tunnel
So let the water boil, goodbye to oil.
At the end of the tunnel there's a light.
We see light at the end of the tunnel
We see light at the end of the tunnel
When the Angel Gabriel blows his magic toot
We see light at the end of the tunnel
We see light at the end of the tunnel
We see that distant gleam that tells you it's steam
At the end of the tunnel there's a light.
Starlight!
