The Lyrics

Some of the stuff in here has actually happened, some hasn't. I have a crazy bus driver - let's just leave it at that.
Engine problems worsen
I'm not too certain we'll get to school without some flares
Exhaust cloud, engine's much too loud
Must have too much wear
Well it seems to me the driver's had too much to drink before he steers
The transmission's fried in overdrive
And we're grinding gears on gears

You better stop
At the sign now
Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes
Here comes the umpteenth school bus breakdown

The ride is wild
And the driver's blind
And something don't smell right
Radiator boiled made a dreadful noise
And the wheels went flat overnight
Sparks of red and yellow flew
And they told us to relax
The chassis fell off and they still didn't give this bus the ax.

You better stop
At the sign now
Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes
Here comes the umpteenth school bus breakdown

Oh, who's to blame for driving in the passing lane
Well the twenty year old brakes don't seem to work
We're heading for a bridge, put it in reverse

We were headed to school
When the driver fool
Got the fan belts misaligned
And after that we headed back
To the repair shop one more time
On my first trip
I tried so hard to sit back and unwind
But then we hit that pothole that seems like a land mine

You better stop
At the sign now
Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes
Here comes the umpteenth school bus breakdown

Oh, who's to blame for driving in the passing lane
Well the twenty year old brakes don't seem to work
We're heading for a bridge, go and fetch the hearse

The ride is wild
And the driver's blind
And something don't smell right
Radiator boiled made a dreadful noise
And the wheels went flat overnight
Sparks of red and yellow flew
And they told us to relax
The chassis fell off and they still didn't give this bus the ax.

You better stop
At the sign now
Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes
Here comes the umpteenth school bus breakdown
Here comes the umpteenth school bus breakdown
Here comes the umpteenth school bus breakdown
Here comes the umpteenth school bus breakdown
Here comes the umpteenth school bus breakdown
Here comes the umpteenth school bus breakdown
(Fade out)

Good one, all 5s from me. Tell me something, is your bus driver like Otto on the Simpsons or that middle aged lady bus driver on South Park who's always in a stroppy mood?

Hmm...not having seen either, I have no clue..But, in two years of riding, we've run out of gas once, gotten into a wreck, had the bus die a time or two, and the AC's been busted for about a total of a month. The wreck was with another bus, which we smashed into since the (surprise!) brakes didn't work. All the high schoolers applauded...I wish I had a videocam then!
