The Lyrics

Don't Know The Original Song (DKTOS)? It's on YouTube.

I view the station
With trepidation
As I make my way
Down to the subway

'Cause there are so many freaks
With pins in their cheeks
And they stay
Down here in the subway

Gotta ride
With psychopaths and loonies
Gotta ride
With maniacs and Moonies
Gotta ride
With winos swilling Cabernet
Down in the subway

Some folks are wheezing
Some folks are sneezing
And they think it's ok
To ride on the subway

There's a guy
Who's wearing just a Speedo
There's a guy
Who really needs some Beano
There's a guy
Who thinks that he's a cheese souffle
Here in the subway

Now it's so packed that your right underarm
Is the only thing I can see, yech
Somebody's pet ferret is biting my toe
I think that I'm gonna scream

There's no denying
There's babies crying
So loud (so loud, so loud, so loud)

I wanna just escape
Hey, look at all the skinheads
Hey, look at all the inbreds
(I wish they'd go away)
I always carry pepper spray
Down in the subway

Tell me why
The seats are kinda sticky
Tell me why
The smell is kinda icky
My oh my
I just stepped on a fish filet
(A moldy fish filet)
Down in the subway

Tell me why
There's fellas wearing girdles
There's mutant ninja turtles
Why do I
Keep riding each and every day
(It's so hard to look away)
Down in the subway
Down here in the subway

(Artistry) Sounds like an interesting ride, LOL! A few pacing stumbles, but other than that, fantastically funny. Great job!
Rex - August 25, 2011 - Report this comment
Thanks! But pacing stumbles? It paces perfectly to the version of the song I used when writing it.

Yeah, I don't see any pacing stumbles either. Very well done Rex and I'm glad I've never had to use the Subway before. Sounds like a very scary place.

(Artistry) Been there done that in Chicago since 1988. You hit it on the nose, Rex! 555

I've been on the famous San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) and you do see some different people there. However it's so RAPID that doesn't really matter. I've also been on the excellent subway systems of Toronto and Montreal. They are fast, efficient, clean but very LOUD! At least there ain't much time for some freak-a-zoid to try to sell you something : )

There were times when I swore the person sitting next to me didn't know what "bath" was.

(Artistry) I guess I should be thankful that this "subway" doesn't exist in Adelaide as far as I know, except as a good place to get a meatball sub. Superb parody here, perfect pacing, TMGLTM, and you used the word "ferret"! 555!

That was very good Rex, totally opposite of TOS. . .its like an updated version of Weird Al's Another One Rides the Bus--but, and this may be committing a parody sin, I think yours is better than Weird Al's Another One Rides the Bus or his own parody of this song, "Ebay"

It is DEFINITELY better than Ebay.
