"You're Crazy for Taking the Bus" - Jonathan Richman


Well, a welfare gal and her drunk galoot
And no one wearing a three piece suit
You meet folks this way you just don't see while flyin
So you take the plane but i'll take the bus this time

Well, welfare gal and her drunkin cuss
And pepsi cans rolling around the bus
That newspaper's a grit and you've got slime
So you take the plane but i'll take the bus this time

Where it's salt lake city everybody off
Salt lake city everybody off
With elko welles and reno down the line
So you take the plane but i'll take the bus this time
But jonathan...

You're crazy for taking the bus
Well, i'm crazy, so what's the fuss
Two whole days on that stinking bus
Yes and i sleep fine
So you take the plane, i'll take the bus this time.
Go donnie, tell 'em.

Look at it this way...
They don't want my name, and i don't want their baggage claim
My guitar is seated right where i am
So you take the plane but i'll take the bus this time

Well you got the old fat guy in his old tank top
The wendover casino stop
And then of course winnemucca and welles and anaheim
So you take the plane and i'll take the bus this time.

And it's salt lake city everybody off
Salt lake city everybody off
With elko welles and reno down the line
So you take the plane, i'll take the bus this time
But jonathan...

You're crazy for taking the bus
Well, i'm crazy, so what's the fuss
Two whole days on that stinking bus
Yeah and i sleep fine
So you take the plane but i'll take the bus this time.
