Violent Femmes Waiting for the Bus Lyrics

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
Lets call the mayor lets complain
Looks like the city’s done to us again
Tied up in traffic what’ya know
The damn city bus moves so slow
I said 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
