The Lyrics

This is the first one I've done in a long time. I've been wanting to do a parody of this song for a while, but nothing was really coming to me. I came up with this, though, and I think it turned out pretty well. Enjoy!
Next stop, Seattle

I'm on the Greyhound, baby, Greyhound,
Public transit, baby, Greyhound – hound, hound,
I'm on the Greyhound, baby, Greyhound,
Public transit, baby, Greyhound – hound, hound,

Long drives – are making me insane,
And I – have been more tired lately,
All I know is traffic speeds,
Piss me off, I'd rather run,
So open up the diamond lane,
I want some, want some,
For just a buck or two (less than a film debut),
And I – can sleep the whole way, like a baby,
All I know is I can read,
The latest in the New York Times,
While on my way to my workplace,
Watch out, here I come,

I'm on the Greyhound, baby, Greyhound,
Public transit, baby, Greyhound – hound, hound,
I'm on the Greyhound, baby, Greyhound,
Public transit, baby, Greyhound – hound, hound,

I – I get to finish my crosswords lately,
And I – find myself here just a little bit sooner,
All I know is that to me,
The bus makes me want to dance, sing,
Unless I have to sit in the weird, middle accordion thing,

I'm on the Greyhound, baby, Greyhound,
Public transit, baby, Greyhound – hound, hound,
I'm on the Greyhound, baby, Greyhound,
Public transit, baby, Greyhound – hound, hound,

Here's my bus pass,
Here's my bus pass,
All I know is that to me,
It may not be all that darn cheap,
But, overall, I'd say that I'm,
At least somewhat pleased,

I'm on the Greyhound, baby, Greyhound,
Public transit, baby, Greyhound – hound, hound,
I'm on the Greyhound, baby, Greyhound,
Public transit, baby, Greyhound – hound, hound,
I'm on the Greyhound, baby, Greyhound,
Public transit, baby, Greyhound – hound, hound,
I'm on the Greyhound, baby, Greyhound,
Public transit, baby, Greyhound – hound, hound.
The first parody I've written since getting my driver's liscense is about public forms of transportation. Hmm...
