The Lyrics

This is an ode to waking up late on a school day
(Don't be late for the bus)
Don't buddy, don't buddy, don't miss the bus
No buddy, no buddy, no buddy no
Don't buddy, don't buddy, don't miss the bus
My little friend

Don't let it by
Don't wave goodbye
Yes it does matter
Just don't pay the price
Tears in your eyes
It happens sometimes
Just wake up more early

Now everytime I wake you
You ask for the time
When I tell the time right to you
The bus is gone and you ask me for a ride
Buddy I must confess
You really need an alarm clock
I think it's just for the best
I remember about

Late nights, stayin up real late
And wakin' up at ten till eight
Boy, you really need that clock bad
I can see it in your eyes
You don't want to
But don't be late for the bus

I'm not speaking from experience
Nothing kept me from getting on the bus
So I hope this will remind you
You may not want to, you have to
So don't be late for the bus

Oh they say
That you're not as smart as a whip
But we both know
You came so close to
Getting on the bus this time
Hey, and I still remember
Don't care if it's September

It's something you have to do
Wake up at the right time
I do not care what you do
Up at six, that's a rule
That you must apply
So buddy we just can't let
The school bus pass you by
That's something that you'd regret
I remember about


And if your still going to school late that is just
Something I can't see
You wanna wake up late just how high school used to be
Here's something you'll never see
Another ride from me
Baby don't you, don't you be late for the bus

[Chorus x2]

Don't buddy, don't buddy, don't miss the bus
No buddy, no buddy, no buddy no
Don't buddy, don't buddy, don't miss the bus

You may not want to, you have to
But don't be late for the bus.
