GREEN LINE BUS (Robert J. Purvis)

Get your window open

Got a hellish long way to go

Temperature is rising

And this bus is really travelling slow


I left around 8:30

Don't expect to be home tonight

I'm trying to get some sleep

But man, the angle of this seat ain't right

Oh no


Get your fettle on the green line bus

Get your fettle on the green line bus

Get your fettle on the green line bus

All the way, yeah


Should have spent some money

Maybe travelled on the train instead

Engine's getting louder

I can feel it kicking in my head


Some kid started crying

Said he's dying and he wants to go, yeah

Mama's sitting, smiling

Johnnie Walker's on the radio, oh yeah


Get your fettle on the green line bus

Get your fettle on the green line bus

Get your fettle on the green line bus

All the way


[guitar solo]


Pull into a café

Have a coffee but be back by three, yeah

Standing in the queue

Won't someone pass a cup along for me, oh yeah


Get your fettle on the green line bus

Get your fettle on the green line bus

Get your fettle on the green line bus

All the way, yeah


[guitar solo]


Green green, green line, green line bus

Green green, green line, green line bus

Green green, green line, green line bus

Green green, green line, green line bus

Green green, green line, green line bus

Green green, green line...
