  • Gimme a "ho" if you got your funky bus fare

    Ho! ho! ho!

    There's a double dutch bus coming down the street
    Moving pretty fast
    So kinda shuffle your feet
    Get on the bus and pay your fare
    And tell the driver that you're
    Going to a Double Dutch Affair
    Fe fi fo fum
    Well I'll be darn here it comes
    The Double Dutch Bus is on the street
    You'd better get off the curb
    Move your feet

    Bus fare trans-pass
    That's the way my money lasts
    Ain't got no car to get around
    When I go to work I've gotta go downtown
    Now I've missed my train
    That's a darn shame
    When I'm running late no sleep's to blame
    If you've gotta wife you know I'm right
    Gotta special man well I can understand
    Uptown, downtown everybody's getting down
    Say uptown, say downtown
    Well I missed my bus I know I'm late
    I gotta do something I know I hate
    I'm gonna walk to work fifteen blocks
    I already got a hole in my socks
    Go ahead and laugh that's okay
    'Cause what I really wanna say
    I got bad feet my corns hurt
    To top it off I'm late for work
    Let me tell you what I say
    When I'm dealin' wit a funky sidewalk
    Let me show you how I walk
    When I gotta do my funky walk
    Let me tell you what I say
    When I'm dealing wit a funky sidewalk
    I say shhhhhhhhhhh-sugarrrrr
