Waiting for The Bus Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

We got the mother and the kids
We got the guy and his date
We all get mad
We all get laid

Looks like somebody forgot about us
Standin' on the corner
Waitin' for a bus

Say, "Hey Mister Driver Man
Don't be slow
'Cause I got somewhere I got to go"

Say, "Hey Mister Driver Man
Drive that thing fast
My precious time keep slippin' past"

Let's call the mayor, let's complain
Looks like the city's done to us again
Tied up in traffic, what do you know?
The damn city bus moves so slow

I said, "Hey Mister Driver Now Man
Don't be slow
'Cause I got somewhere I got to go"

Say, "Hey Mister Driver Man
Drive that thing fast
My precious time keep slippin' past"

{Young man your transfer's expired
Would you please pay a full fare?
I just got this transfer
Hey can you open up the back door?
Either you pay your 65 cents
Or you'll have to leave the bus
You got to be kidding me, I just got it
Would you please open up the back door?}

We got the mother and the kids
We got the guy and his date
We all get mad
We all get laid

Looks like somebody forgot about us
Standin' on the corner
Waitin' for a bus

Say, "Hey Mister Driver Man
Don't be slow
'Cause I got somewhere I got to go"

Say, "Hey Mister Driver Man
Drive that thing fast
My precious time keep slippin' past"
