Often called "The MTA Song", it was written in 1949 by Jacqueline Steiner and Bess Lomax Hawes. Also known as "Charlie on the MTA", it tells of a man trapped on Boston's subway system (MTA). The song was originally recorded as a campaign song for Walter O'Brien. This version of the song, with the candidate's name changed, became a 1959 hit for the trio.
