The Lyrics

The original performers -- actually, the song dates back to the Sinatra era, if not originating with Frank himself -- are not the Detroit Temptations. This was a white Brooklyn doo-wop group, hence the weird opening. This was their only hit, and they'd broken up before the Motown group began a string of about 40 hits under the name, including the totally different-sounding "Just My Imagination." This was inspired by my misadventure in Cleveland and Pittsburgh last weekend.
In a bus-bus-bus, in a bus-bus-bus-bus station!
In a bus-bus-bus, in a bus-bus-bus-bus station!
In a bus-bus-bus, in a bus-bus-bus-bus station!
In a bus-bus-bus, in a bus-bus-bus-bus station!

In a bus station, ain't funny.
You stand on line like a dummy.
Starts you asking a rummy
"Where's my bus, where's my bus?"

In a bus-bus-bus, in a bus-bus-bus-bus station!
In a bus-bus-bus, in a bus-bus-bus-bus station!

In a bus station, it's crazy.
Your whole perspective gets hazy.
Customer Service is lazy.
They're not gonna help you.

In a bus-bus-bus, in a bus-bus-bus-bus station!
In a bus-bus-bus, in a bus-bus-bus-bus station!

(Have you ever thought to take a train
and ride it home and then
found you're still stuck at that old bus station?)

Well, yes, I've sometimes thought to take a train
and ride it home and then
found I'm still stuck at that old bus station!

In a bus-bus-bus, in a bus-bus-bus-bus station!
In a bus-bus-bus, in a bus-bus-bus-bus station!

In a bus station, it's silly.
In Pittsburgh, you wanna be in Philly.
This is after I spent about a hundred bucks
and I'm stuck here at one AM or two!

In a bus-bus-bus, in a bus-bus-bus-bus station!
In a bus-bus-bus, in a bus-bus-bus-bus station!
In a bus-bus-bus, in a bus-bus-bus-bus station!
In a bus-bus-bus, in a bus-bus-bus-bus station!
(repeat 'til fade)
