Lyrics

CGI Series

Thrills and spills on the railway, it's a life of happiness,
But sometimes impatience can lead to carelessness.
Some think they are smart cats
And some just know it all,
But sooner or later we all find out that...
Accidents happen now and again,
Just when you least expect.
Just when you think that life is okay,
Fate comes to collect!
Accidents happen now and again, when people or trains get smart.
If you don't concentrate on the thing that you're doing,
Accidents will happen just like that!
Your best laid plans can turn upside-down,
If you get too confident.
Sometimes you will slip and slide if that's Lady Luck's intent.
One minute you're riding high,
The next you're on the ground.
But please remember
Whatever the weather
You must take care 'cause...
Accidents happen now and again, sometimes just by chance.
You gotta pick yourself up and dust yourself down,
Put it down to experience!
Accidents happen now and again,
Just don't take it all to heart,
'Cause if you don't concentrate on the thing that you're doing,
Accidents will happen, just like that!
The warning signs are there for us to see most of the time,
But sometimes we take chances, ignore the danger signs,
Fate can surprise you with no reason or rhyme.
Make sure you learn your lesson. You'll know better next time!
Accidents happen now and again, sometimes just by chance.
You gotta pick yourself up and dust yourself down,
Put it down to experience!
Accidents happen now and again, just don't take it all to heart.
If you don't concentrate on the thing that you're doing,
Whatever you're doing is not what you're thinking,
Accidents, incidents,
Accidents - Incidents
Accidents happen just like that!

スリルなんてちょっとなら たのしみさ
でも、イライラすると じこがおきる
へっちゃらさ、なんて しらんかおして
はしって いると そんなとき
じこがほら おきるよ いきなりくる
ちょうしのって やってると
バチがあたる
じこがほら おきるよ
いいきになってると
そうさ、よそみしてるそのときに
じこはおきるものさ
おもいつきでやると
きっと しっぱいするよ
こううんのめがみは きまぐれだから
ウキウキしてると まっさかさま
わすれないで きをつけてね いつだって
じこがほら おきるよ とつぜんさ
うんがないときは しょうがない
なんとかしよう
じこがもし おきたら
おちこまないで
うまくやれるように がんばろうよ
じこは おきるものさ
”ひょうしきはいくつもあるのにさ、
だいじなモノばかりみおとすね”
そんなとき かならずやってくる
にどとやらなければ いいけど
じこがほら おきるよ いきなりくる
ちょうしのって やってると
バチがあたる
じこがほら おきるよ
いいきになってると
そうさ、よそみしてるそのときに
じこは おきるものさ
じこがほら おきるよ とつぜんさ
うんがないときは しょうがない
なんとかしよう
じこがもし おきたら
おちこまないで
「まぁ、じしんかじょうだとしゅうちゅうりょくなんて
たいがいさんまんになっちゃうからね」
じこだ じこだ
わすれてるとじこはおこるさ
ほーら!
