Well I decided to take the bus
It was about six o five
'Cuz I could hardly walk
In fact, I was just bearing
Under the bridge and over the street
Now every shadow that I meet
They all know my name

And they whisper, "Oh what's the matter Hon?
Don't you know you're ridin' on a ghost train?"

Jupiter Ray on the bus
I remember when Jupiter came to the town
Man, he was one of the best of us
Oh, that stuff can really take you down
Hey, Jupiter Ray is on the bus
I remember when Jupiter was alive
Come to think of it you all have a strange translucence in your eyes

What's the matter son?
Don't you know you're ridin' on the ghost train

You somewhere

You just buy your ticket and get on board
This train don't stop 'cuz we like to ride ride ride ride
We just wanna ride and ride ride ride

Ding goes the trolley
Ooh bang goes the bell
Somebody call my second cousin
Oh I'm not feelin' very well
This is where little blondes check in their furs
This is where little blondes check in their hat
Don't worry about where you were?
We took care of that

Mr Driver is this my stop ?
Mr Driver tell me how to get off
Any way you can, anyway come back into the light

But you wanna get to heaven
You take the devil by the hand
And you slide right into the promised land
'Cuz this could be the night
And this could be the gate
Everybody's waitin' for you darlin'
So don't be late

What's the matter honey ?
Didn't you pay your money for the ghost train?

Well I decided to take the bus
It was about six o five
'Cuz I could hardly walk
In fact, I was just barely alive
Ooh!
