Old Night Bus

the rain is pouring hard, the ground’s soaked

mud is sticking to the old tire,

still, round it goes just like it did before


passengers are kept warm despite the roof that’s rusting

some are sleeping deeply

as the end of a tiring work day


she goes up and down the streets, avenues and boulevards

never-ceasing, never tired even with the creaking

be it rain, be it sunshine she’s out and about


she’ll continue to work, to make sure you’re all safe

the old creaking bus, here she comes again

because I forgot to tie my shoes

I forgot to tie my shoes

So I missed the bus

Because I missed the bus

I arrived late at school

Since I was late,

I was not able to pass my homework

As I was unable to pass my homework,

I did not get an A+

Because I did not get a good grade,

I did not become an honor student.

Since I was unable to be part of the honor roll

I did not get to be known at school

Since I was a great unknown,

No one voted for me to be class President.

I did not become class President

all because I forgot to tie my shoes.
