The Bus Ride Home MAG
The Bus ride home is going slow -
Another 15 stops to go.
Apaper airplane whizzes by
And someone just spit in myeye.
The smell of hairspray in the air,
My bratty sisterpulls my hair.
As I look up, what do ya know -
Another 13stops to go.
The driver's music loud and clear,
I think I'mdeaf in my left ear.
A kid who sits in front has candy,
Apiece would surely be quite handy.
I try to get a piece - just one-
But when I get there, he's all done.
As I look up, whatdo ya know -
Another 8 more stops to go.
This cute girl'ssitting in the rear,
I'd rather be there instead ofhere.
But just as I start moving back,
I fall with agigantic crack!
Some stupid kids who think they'recool
Tripped me so I'd look like a fool
I hate to say theirplan did work,
I feel like a humungous jerk.
I'll slip intothe seat and then,
I'll never show my face again.
As I lookup, what do you know -
Another 5 whole stops to go.
MyEnglish book is what I need,
I think I will curl up andread.
Just when I get into the book,
Charlie gives me aweird look.
Kicks me right in the rear end,
And I thoughthe was my best friend.
A "Kick Me" sign was on myback,
And then I get a kick from Jack.
There's hoots oflaughter everywhere,
Because my pants now have a tear.
As Ilook up, what do ya know -
Another 2 more stops to go.
I'mstarting to feel drowsy now,
Just one more stop, almost therenow.
As I start to drift away,
Some kid yells out to me,"Hey! Hey!"
"Your stop has gone and passed youby!"
I feel as if I'm gonna die.
Everybody laughs andcheers,
Right now I think I'm close to tears.
The driverpats me on the back,
"I'll drop you off on the wayback.
Don't be sad it won't go slow
Only 30 stops togo."
