Lyrics

I am a bus driver and it's four in the morning
And I'm pressing out my clothes beside my bed
Fourteen years been on the job and with many miles behind
Still I'm up at three-thirty to make sure I'm there on time

See my car gets me along just fine, to and from the station
But my castle is this Houston Metro Bus
My first stop is Ashbury, and the sign's been gone for years
All same the people wait 'cause they know that I'll be there

What would you say if I told you that I won't be by today?
Would you say that
I'm just a bus driver, and what do I know
I'm just a bus driver, and what do I know
I'm just a bus driver, and what do I know?

Well, I'm always there by five-fifteen
And lately I've been early 'cause Judith likes to be in early to the bank
And she gives me conversation and a token good for riding
And she's happy on her own

And then there's Charles in retail sales and I hope they pay him well
For the work that young man does
'Cause I've never seen the inside of a custom refrigerator
But I know that he's the first and last one there

What would you say if I told you that I won't be by today?
Would you say that
I'm just a bus driver, and what do I know
I'm just a bus driver, and what do I know
I'm just a bus driver, and what do I know
And what do I know?

I wonder what they do all day at their respective works
Suppose they give money and take money away
Still I'm just orbiting this town with the post office my sun
I'm circling again

And I wonder how this world would be
If I was never here to drive this bus around from Ashbury to Main
Suppose this town would be the same but with one bus' less exhaust
But that bank and retail stores, they just wouldn't be the same

What can I see from the limited confines of my bus driving seat?
Lonely me and
I'm just a bus driver, and what do I know
I'm just a bus driver, and what do I know
I'm just a bus driver, and what do I know
I'm just a bus driver, and what do I know?

I'm just a bus driver, and don't believe that
I'm just a bus driver, well don't believe that
I'm just a bus driver, well don't believe that
We're all just bus drivers
It's time to go home
