The Lyrics

One man...one public transport system...one destination...at least ten headaches...
Not learned to drive, I can't easily run
Don't have a bike, screw cabs, so I take the bus
But I ree-ee-eel each time, yeah, I frea-ea-eak each time
Be on time? I doubt, cause I can't work out
How this twisted shit makes sense at all no-ow
Don't know what bus route to take, what bus route?
I wanna go today on the right bus
But the damn metro website layout plain sucks
Cause I ca-a-annot find any ma-a-aps online
Written labels down, each stop pointed out
No, there's just a list of said stops, screwed no-ow
Don't know what bus route to take, what bus route?

Just wanna ride the bus, not much to ask, no?
Why must it be so complicated? I don't know
Ooh-hoo-ooh-ooh, I keep searchin', ooh-hoo-ooh-ooh, keep researchin'
Til I find the route, find the right bus route
Gettin' really tired of the runarou-ound
Don't know what bus route to take, wha-a-a-at bus route (hey)?

Doesn't help I'm crap at geography
I don't really get out that much, don't know this city
No clues to what I should do on this websi-i-ite
Thinks I know it like the ba-a-ack of my hand, ri-i-ight
I say if I did know my way around
I'd know what bus route to take, ri-i-ight bus route, yeah

Just wanna ride the bus, not much to ask, no?
Why must it be so convoluted? I don't know
Ooh-hoo-ooh-ooh (hey), keep on searchin', ooh-hoo-ooh-ooh (hey), keep researchin'
Til I find the route, find the right bus route
I'm so sick and tired of the runarou-ound
Don't know what bus route to take, wha-a-a-at bus rou-ou-oute?

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, this is so confusing
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, I just found the map thing
But it was a waste, it doesn't state
The times at all, it's stupid as ba-a-alls
Switchin' between the tabs is really dumb
Forgettin' all the facts, can't they be on one?

Just wanna ride the bus, not much to ask, no?
Why must it be so damn arcane? Cause I don't know
Ooh-hoo-ooh-ooh (hey), still keep searchin', ooh-hoo-ooh-ooh (hey), keep researchin'
Til I find the route, find the right bus route
I'm so friggin' tired of the runarou-ound
Don't know what bus route to take, wha-a-a-at bus rou-ou-oute?

This stupid site is crap, cause sense, it makes none
I've failed to find shit, man, it makes me feel dumb
I don't (hey) see-ee-ee online any (hey) rea-ea-eal help, right
Whatchu talkin' 'bout? I can sort shit out
Usin' Google Maps? I feel so dumb no-ow
Now I can find out the correct bus rou-ou-oute
Find the du-u-u-u-u-umb bu-us rou-ou-ou-ou-ou-oute

One man...one moron...

We all know the pain.

This was a nice original topic to take on but the pacing seems a bit off here. The repeated line (at least on the recording is "till the love runs out" and you write "what bus route" which means that it's two syllables short) maybe there's a different version of it somewhere (like the live version or something that does it your way so it's hard to judge on your pacing but the topic was nice and original.

The pacing issue is pretty evident, you placed a comma where the singer doesn't pause in the chorus. That made for a very jumbled scan/listening experience. This could have used a bit more detail...instead of just telling that the website was untrustworthy, you could have described how it failed you--sent you to a dairy farm instead of the nightclub, just as an example.
