IT'S A RIDE, LIKE AN ELEVATOR, BUT SCARY LIKE A ROLLER COASTER. FEELS AS IF YOU'RE GOING STRAIGHT DOWN AT GREAT SPEED. WAS ON IT IN PORTO, PORTUGAL, BUT CAN'T THINK OF THE NAME. SOUNDS LIKE FERNICULA, FURNICULA? DON'T KNOW HOW TO SPELL IT OR CORRECT NAME.
Funicular railroad. Dictionary definition: "a cable railroad,
especially one on a mountainside, in which ascending and descending
cars are counterbalanced."
Yes, but unlike an elevator, it goes at a 45 degree or so angle, not
straight up and down.
Some think the world is made for fun and frolic,
And so do I! And so do I!
Some think it well to be all melancholic,
To pine and sigh; to pine and sigh;
But I, I love to spend my time in singing,
Some joyous song, some joyous song,
To set the air with music bravely ringing
Is far from wrong! Is far from wrong!
Harken, harken, music sounds a-far!
Harken, harken, with a happy heart!
Funiculì, funiculà, funiculì, funiculà!
Joy is everywhere, funiculì, funiculà!
