Is all you had to make a couple rails
And that's a track,
Lu’s playing on the word rails as a synonym for bars and the dual meaning of the word track.
- Simplistic sounds (such as those described above) is all you had to make bars (of music) back in the day, and an entire song (or track) simply consisted of these repeated bars.
- A couple rails literally makes up a (train) track.
