The Lyrics

There's a transit strike in Montreal. Essential Services laws mean that rush-hour service will be available. But on the weekend? Forget it. Montreal will become like the "idealised" 50's autopia so many dreamed of....except for the traffic jams.
Everyone's walking, that's all they can do
No busses are running right now, oh
Everyone's wondering, will the strike end tonight
As the union is trying to get it right, get it right

Everybody's walking on the weekend
Everyone shop, work or going to dance
Yes the traffic's goin' off the deep end
On the highways you ain't got no chance, oh
There ain't an available bus
You'll be starting to fuss
You wanna go to the show
Takes three hours to go

Everyone's being given the royal screw
Everyone wants a deal to come through
Everyone's hoping it'll all work out
Everyone's waiting they're holding out

Everybody's walking on the weekend
Everyone shop, work or going to dance
Yes the traffic's goin' off the deep end
On the highways you ain't got no chance, oh
There ain't an available bus
You'll be starting to fuss
You hafta walk to the show
Pray there's not any snow

(quick break)

There ain't a subway train
You'll be feeling the pain
It takes three hours to go
Pray there's not any snow

There ain't an available bus
You'll be starting to fuss
You wanna go there by far
It will seem very far
