The Wacky World of Rapid Transit

from I Wish My Brother George Was Here by Del The Funky Homosapien

lyrics

Fresh from the meadow with a mellow attitude / I was plannin' to persue another quest for the bus / I had to go to San Fran, it's something that I can't stand / It's beggin' for a ride with ma dukes makes a fuss / I don't like fussin' so I ask my older cousin / Could he maybe find time to give the D-E-L a lift / He said it is impossible because he has a roster full of plans for the day / I had to go and sift through pennies in my jeans / To many it may seem that the public transportation really isn't keen / And I agree with the theory / Because it's 3:30 and the bus was due at 2:35 / I iron my Girbauds so I can wait with pride / I waited at the bus stop feeling kinda high / From a spliff that I smoked / I riffed and provoked / A liitle scene when the bus arrived late like a joke / With a corny punchline / And it was only lunchtime / The bus should've been here, the driver had much time / To get his act together / No matter what the weather / Now I'm sittin' at the bus stop waitin' like forever

Skit 1

When oh when is the bus gonna come / I'm getting sick and tired of the wait / When oh when is the bus gonna come / Well here comes a pack of about 14 / Lookin' real mean with hoodies and jeans / And bad attitudes and I wasn't in the mood / For no head on collision with the hoods / Try to use my transfer but it's no good / Would these rough lookin' kids get busy with the youngsta / Amongst the many who must catch rapid transit to get through the city / I'm not certain / But if I go sit in the back it's curtains / Kids wanna ride the back / What kinda shit is that? / Nowadays niggas can't wait to hit the back / Let me stand in the front with the elderly / So those other cats won't raise hell with me

Skit 2

Oh golly gee, not another day on the 46A / I should've caught the 46B / 'Cause dukes takes the mass scene and group through the trees / And shoots the breeze with the ladies / Look at that around the way girl / Yeah, I see her / (whistle) More crack than a drug dealer / A kid sits by me with a gang of afro sheen on / I'm not Joe Clark and I would hate for him to lean on / My shoulder and try to hold a conversation / 'Cause I don't have the patience / When oh when is the bus gonna reach its destination / Question over space and time / Wastin' time / Word up, I can't take this line of nitwits / I'm about to have a fit quick / 'Cause this trip here is making me car sick / Check out the brother with the loaded .38 / Braggin' to his buddies about the money that he makes / Sellin' crack viles like pancakes / To baseheads just like the one / That's sittin by the window starvin' for a fix / He spent his last 80 cents on fare / He raises up and lets me get in his chair / Then I sit and take a snooze / But I still lose / 'Cause I cruise right past my stop / Had to get off and walk 15 blocks. . .
