    Cool I suppose your groovy train is off the track.

    Please explain the meaning of this informal expression

    " I suppose your groovy train is off the track. "

    Thank you.

    More context would help.

    It could be a mistake for a gravy train - a way of making money quickly, easily, and often dishonestly

    Or a pun on that, saying your fashionable and exciting life is off beam.

    Can you give us the context for the sentence?

    Sorry Anglika
    That was all I was given .. I was quite confused by this as there are no other details at all. But thanks for trying anyway.
