The Lyrics

One of the few things that can legitametly piss me off is the fact that the bus timetable is a complete joke. Particularly when it shows you times for bus stops that aren't the one you're standing at, making the times pretty much useless.
No bus! Just cars
"Wait fifteen minutes, should be all right"
That's what the sign's sayin' (no luck)
I think that thing's lyin' (still cars)
Thinkin' that bus should be here by now and that is not all right
Wishin' I had my licence, bypass this shite
Wo wo-wo wo-wo!

Nothing has passed except dozens of cars (no bus)
Waiting for this bus sure is one grueling task ('tis hard)
If it doesn't get here any sooner
I could well lose my mind, if I had one to start with

No bus! I'm freezing off my arse (still cars)
When that thing gets here, I hope it isn't full, that would bite
Why can't it to stick to the schedule? (no bus)
Don't make me eat my ticket (still cars)
Come on!
If that thing's not in service, I will not be all right
Or reserved for students, that is just shite
Where is it?!

I'm melting out here, I hope the bus has air conditioning (please, bus)
I hope it's the route I need that passes soon (please come)
Sev'ral have passed that won't help me arrive there
I fear what might happen if I don't pay full attention

There's still no bus, half an hour's passed (time's passed)
Is it comin'? I've done this many times, it's been fine
Something here isn't right (no bus)
Come on (still cars) wo-ooh

Must keep my eyes on the road, or it'll pass right by
Never seen taxis 'round here, all right
Can't take my eyes off the road, cause it'll pass right by
I might call my father, ask for a ride
The last chorus kinda fades out, so that may be tricky.

I like how you were waiting so long the season actually changed...!

Wow! That's pretty wild. For it to go from freezing to extremely hot in just a half hour. Australia must have some of the craziest weather known to man! This was a pretty decent parody but this is a hard topic to pad out... You did a decent job with it but it's very hard to pull this off without sounding redundant.

The perfect into song to Weird Al's "Another One Rides the Bus". Maybe take up hitchhiking?

As Matthias pointed out, it is kinda redundant, however that kind of worka in favor for this tune (and like many reggae songs, at least imho!l)

I can relate from my days back before I had a car. . .though there were a few inconsistencies I have to admit
