The Kingston Trio - M.T.A.

A xenial historia detrás do te-ma-zo:
Hai anos en Boston os porcoscapitalistas que controlaban o metro (o M.T.A. -Metropolitan Transit Authority- do título) argallaban xeitos de sacarlle os cartos á xentiña, e deron cunha idea tremenda: cobrar un extra ao baixar. Como resposta á chunga medida, naceu esta canción protesta e o conto de Charlie, o home que non volve nunca, que montou no metro e ficou atrapado para sempre, sen poder baixar por non levar no peto un níquel (cinco centavos) co que pagar a "taxa sorpresa".

Let me tell you 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

Did he ever return,
No he never returned
And his fate is still unlearn'd
He may ride forever
'neath the streets of Boston
He''s the man who never returned.

Charlie handed in his dime
At the Kendall Square Station
And he changed for Jamaica Plain
When he got there the conductor told him,
"One more nickel."
Charlie could not get off that train.

Did he ever return,
No he never returned
And his fate is still unlearn'd
He may ride forever
'neath the streets of Boston
He''s the man who never returned.

Charlie's wife goes down
To the Scollay Square station
Every day at quarter past two
And through the open window
She hands Charlie a sandwich
As the train comes rumblin' through.

Did he ever return,
No he never returned
And his fate is still unlearn'd
He may ride forever
'neath the streets of Boston
He''s the man who never returned.

Now you citizens of Boston,
Don't you think it's a scandal
That the people have to pay and pay
Fight the fare increase!
Vote for George O'Brien!
Get poor Charlie off the MTA.

Or else he'll never return,
No he'll never return
And his fate will be unlearn'd
He may ride forever
'neath the streets of Boston
He's the man who never returned.
He's the man who never returned.
He's the man who never returned.

Hai unha chea máis de información sobre a canción acó.

Os Dropkick Murphys, que son máis de Boston ca diola, déronlle unha volta á canción, co título "Skinhead on the M.B.T.A.". E coma todas as do primeiro disco dos Murphys, mola que te cagas.
