Stay On The Ride Submit Correct Lyrics

Little old man, little old man staring down the road
Waiting on the bus, it's getting kinda cold
Bus finally gets there, he got nowhere to sit down
And the driver said, "You can stand right here behind me
Or wait for the next one to come around"

And the old man says, "That's okay, I'll stand
I might look like a little old man to you
But I've been riding this bus for years and years and years
I don't even know where it's going to"

And the driver says, "You don't know where this bus is going to?"
Old man says, "No, I don't, do you?"
Driver says, "You don't know where this bus is going to?"
Old man says, "I just want it to get me through

I'm staying on the ride, it's gonna take me somewhere
Staying on the ride, it's gonna take me somewhere
Somewhere, somewhere, somewhere, somewhere

Bus is rolling along, outside
It's looking kinda strange
There earth is shaking, the clouds are breaking
Everything is blue, where it was gray

A thousand red birds fly over fields of snow
Driver looks back in the mirror for the old man
"Where did he go, where did he go? Oh, there he is
Hey, old man, old man, old man, you still don't know?"
And the old man says, "No, I don't son, but I'm happy to go

I'm staying on the ride, it's gonna take me somewhere
He said, I'm staying on the ride, it's gonna take me somewhere
Somewhere, somewhere, somewhere, somewhere

I was born with no name, knowing nothing, still I don't
Somebody said, 'you need a name, I'm gonna give you a name'
And I said, 'No, you won't', I said, 'No, you won't'

"You can let me off here, son
Thank you for the ride"
And the driver said, "This is the middle of nowhere, sir"
He pulls off to the side

And the old man says
"It might look that way to you, maybe it is"
Old man says
"It might look that way to you, son, maybe it is

Then he says, "Stay on the ride, it's gonna take you somewhere
He said, Stay on the ride, it's gonna take you somewhere
Somewhere, somewhere, somewhere, somewhere

It always takes you somewhere
Gonna take you somewhere
Always takes you somewhere
Gonna take you somewhere

Always takes you somewhere
Gonna take you somewhere
Always takes you somewhere
Gonna take you some
