Not Particularly True To The Original

Sunset at Georgian Bay

The wheels on the bus go round and round,
Round and round,
Round and round,
The wheels on the bus go round and round,
All around the town.

The bomb on the bus goes tick tock tick,
Tick tock tick,
Tick tock tick,
The bomb on the bus goes tick tock tick,
All around the town.

Hopper on the bus goes what do you do,
What do you do,
What do you do,
Hooper on the bus goes what do you do,
All around the town.

Keanu on the bus goes whoa whoa whoa,
Whoa whoa whoa,
Whoa whoa whoa,
Keanu on the bus goes whoa whoa whoa,
All around the town.

The highway makes the bus go through the air,
Through the air,
Through the air,
The highway makes the bus go through the air,
All around the town.

I wanted to work something in there about how the driver of the bus says this is the high water mark of my career, but the meter of it didn’t really come together for me. The record will show, however, that I successfully put Maya to sleep.

  1. The record will also show that Hopper wasn’t actually on the bus; your story is faulty.

    I’m sure Maya will forgive you.

  2. Some accuracy has been sacrificed for the sake of meter, it’s true.
