lyrics

5. Waiting for a Bus
Lead vocal by Aspara Gus

We’re waiting.................
for a bus
is that our bus?
no, that is just a truck

We’re waiting
for a bus
is that our bus?
“Not in service”
that was not our bus

Traffic jam traffic jam
all over the street
this is not the kind of jam
people like to eat
bees make honey by buzzing into flowers
and people make traffic jam, traffic jam, traffic jaaaam
by sitting in their cars for hours and hours

Chorus
la la la la la la la la
la la la la la la la
la la la la la la la la
la la la la la la la
la la la la la la la la
la la la la la la la la
la la la la la la la la
waiting for a bus

We’re waiting.......waiting.......still waiting…..still waiting
for a bus
is that our bus?
”School special”
but it’s Saturday!?
that was not our bus

How I wish we could just
ride our bicycles
without the threat of heavy metal motor vehicles
or that we could fly so high above the town
hovering like hummingbirds, hummingbirds, hummingbirrrrds
looking at the cars like ants on the ground

Chorus

The people in their cars
look out of the glass
like prisoners in solitary cells
sitting all alone
staring at their phones
filling up the air with stress and dust and smoke and stress
and all kinds of toxic, nasty smells

We’re waiting……still waiting
for a bus
is that our bus?
well, it is slowing down
it’s stopping……the doors are opening
[gasp]
OMG
THAT’S OUR BUS!
[All aboard]

When we first got to the stop
we were the only ones
now there’s a line of forty people waiting just like us
it seems like we’ve been standing here for hours maybe months
then all of sudden over the hill, over the hill, over the hiiilll
not one
not two
but three buses all come along at once

12 tickets please
Sorry mate, prepay only
WHAT!!!
