Now let me tell you a story about a man named Charlie
On this tragic & fateful day
He put 10 cents into his pocket, kissed his wife and family
Went to ride on the M.T.A.

But did he ever return? No, he never returned,
And his fate is still unlearned
He may ride forever beneath 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 couldn’t get off that train

But did he ever return? No, he never returned,
And his fate is still unlearned
He may ride forever beneath the streets of Boston
He’s the man who never returned

Now all night long Charlie rides through the station
Saying, “What will become of me?
How can I afford to see my sister in Chelsea
Or my cousin in Roxbury?”

But did he ever return? No, he never returned,
And his fate is still unlearned
He may ride forever beneath the streets of Boston
He’s the man who never returned

Charlie’s wife goes down to Scollay Square Station
Every day at a quarter past two
And through the open window she hands Charlie a sandwich
As the train comes rumbling through

But did he ever return? No, he never returned,
And his fate is still unlearned
He may ride forever beneath the streets of Boston
He’s the man who never returned

Now you citizens of Boston, don’t you think it is a scandal
That the people have to pay and pay
Fight the fare increase, vote for George O’Brien
And get Charlie off the M.T.A.!

But did he ever return? No, he never returned,
And his fate is still unlearned
He may ride forever beneath the streets of Boston
He’s the man who never returned
He’s the man who never returned
