Sometimes when it is thundering

Or just about to rain,

We line up chairs in the dining room

And make The Grady Train.

I’m usually the passenger

Complete with all my gear.

Chris is the conductor

And Lynn’s the engineer.

We blow the whistle and we chug

Like locomotives do

And pretend our destination

Is the San Diego Zoo

But if the weather takes a turn

And it really doesn’t rain,

I say I  have no ticket and

They throw me off the train

Because if the sun is shining

We can just go back outside

And on a different rainy day,

We’ll take another ride.
