The Lyrics

Are you going to scarf up your fare?
Hey, you pull this stunt all the time
Remember I'm the one who works here
You can't ride with just one thin dime

Look in the pockets of your flannel shirt
Paper clips, gum wrappers and hair?
Are you prepared to be late for work?
You'll be lucky if you get there

Here is a ticket just this one time, man
It is my good deed for the day
I don't like to see a guy in a strand
Hurry up and be on your way

Just blow it off as a small polite favor
Paper clips, gum wrappers and hair
They've been in my pockets a time or two
And they won't get you anywhere

Royce, this is a hard song to parody, and you make it look easy.

The guy in this song was flat BUSted. Very good job on a very hard one to parody. Here are three nickles to help with that fare.

little verse, lots bigger and more sensical story that what it parodied.
