The Lyrics

...I'm not quite sure how I got from the original song to "Speed", but I did.
Cab fares were high so I took a ride
On a nice, cheap bus, and I almost died, 'cuz
There was a bomb on its underside, oh
I'll never ride a bus again
I'll never ride a bus again.

We trundled along some busy road
Some dude named Jack yelled that we'd explode, he
Had a fit when we kinda slowed, oh
I'll never ride a bus again
I'll never ride a bus again.

(Tried forgetting what it's all about
'Cause I was there and I'm glad I'm out
Public transport and I are so through)
That is why, doc, I'm here to tell you:

Cars were thick but we couldn't stop
Jack jumped on board, claimed he was a cop, and
Obeying red lights meant we'd blow up
I'll never ride a bus again
I'll never ride a bus again.

Things were tricky, people died
Was kind of gross; some people cried we
Tried in vain to get outside, oh
I'll never ride a bus again
I'll never ride a bus again.

Hours later, 'bout to crack, we
Got saved thanks to Jack and Annie
But some lives we lack, omg
I'll never ride a bus again
I'll never ride a bus again.

Not a ghost, oh lucky me
But doc says I've got PTSD
This is why I guarantee that
I'll never ride a bus again
I'll never ride a bus again.

I see very easily how you got there: Nice parallel switch from OS to parody title, and the movie made it for you. Or the movie gave the idea, and you found the perfect OS. That's how it's done. Congrats, and welcome. *Very* clever, and deserves far more v/c's. 555
