My bus is late! My bus is late! It’s time to hyperventilate!
Consult my watch and scan the phone,
At least I’m not left here alone!
I see the trees! I see the stars!
I see the lights of passing cars!
My face is tingling! Vision blurred!
The ground is tilting – how absurd!
A face appears ‘midst flashing light,
And now I’m floating in the night!
I float right into private bus
And off we go! Oh, what a fuss!
Now there’s bright lights here and a crowd,
Pushing, pulling, shouting loud!
It seems I’m passing every test,
Then they declare I just need rest!
So, this will teach that nasty bus!
I mean – who can you really trust?
Buses, trains, they’re all the same!
At least I’ve got someone to blame!
