The Lyrics

I'm doing another "tribute", and I use that term loosely, to the MTC bus strike. Morning service now ends at 9 A.M. Don't be late!
I miss the bus.. I miss the bus..
I miss the bus.. I miss the bus..

[Verse 1]
I went to bed late but I didn't think late would EFFECT ME
Early came around then late wouldn't LET ME
Wake up - WAKE UP - so I can get dressed
I guess my body was mad 'cause I gave it no rest
And when I finally did awake it was a quarter to 9:00
Jumped in the shower and I know things ain't fine
Stepped out put on my jeans and shoes
And said to myself if I got the striking blues
But I ran down Peel and I RUSHED RUSHED
I ran down the hill TRYIN TO CATCH THE LAST BUS
Now I'm hopin to myself everything is cool
Standin on my block like a fool
But (1) I'm all alone and (2) the bus is gone
(3) 3PM is when they'll next send another one
Nobody can come real fast to my rescue
they're all stuck in traffic and and don't know what to do

[Chorus: repeat 2x]
I woulda missed the bus [ohh]

I woulda missed the bus
I woulda missed the bus [ohh]
But that is somethin that never ever ever arrived!

[verse 2]
I was up - HE WAS UP - but I laid back down
Thinkin I could chill 'til the time came around
And I did - HE DID - but a little too long
Cause when I woke up yo the bus was gone
I almost broke my neck, tryin to get out the door
And I chased the bus 'til my feet was sore
On the trail - THE TAIL - but I couldn't catch up
I guess it must have been my day for me to have bad luck
Cause I slipped on a pothole, nearly hit by a car
Warn out my shoes 'cause I've walked really far
And when I got to work it was the same old thing
Stepped in the office and the clock bell rang
It was nothin I could do, I tried to explain
But the boss treated me like I was playin a game
YOU LOSE YOU LOSE - the day was a no win
I hope they'll never stop my bus again
