This Train Don't Pull No Wankers...

Solved the YouTube mystery...Because 'This Train' was sung in England, thought at first Sister Rosetta Tharpe was saying, "This train don't pull no wankers". But just noticed Sister Rosetta Tharpe is winking when saying that, so the lyrics are, like a comment below the video pointed out, "This train don't pull no winkers". Not wankers.

More funny....she says at the beginning of this one, when getting out of the horse carriage in Manchester, England, "This is the wonderfullest time of my life". Wonderfullest. Funny. Great video:

Explanation under one of her other "Didn't It Rain" videos:
Sister Rosetta Tharpe (March 20, 1915 -- October 9, 1973) was an American pioneering gospel singer, songwriter and recording artist who attained great popularity in the 1930s and 1940s with a unique mixture of spiritual lyrics and early rock and roll accompaniment. She became the first great recording star of gospel music in the late 1930s and also became known as the "original soul sister" of recorded music.
Willing to cross the line between sacred and secular by performing her inspirational music of 'light' in the 'darkness' of the nightclubs and concert halls with big bands behind her, her witty, idiosyncratic style also left a lasting mark on more conventional gospel artists, such as Ira Tucker, Sr., of the Dixie Hummingbirds. While she offended some conservative churchgoers with her forays into the world of pop music, she never left gospel music.
