about

Girl On The Bus was written by Ian Herold who played trombone in my first band, Frankie Foo and the Yoyo Smugglers. It's a fantastic song and was the one most often requested when I started my own band.

lyrics

Girl on the Bus (Ian Herold)

This is a message to the girl on the bus
Don’t know your name, but maybe you could tell me
All about you though really there’s no rush
A conversation would really make me happy

You sit in front of me or maybe right beside
With your long pretty legs and crazy wavy salad
I check you out I don’t even try to Hide
But we don’t talk so nothing going to happen

Chorus
You look at me that way, makes me want to come out and say
Hey girl-your so fine, we should have some fun sometime
If it would be all right I just wanna take you out tonight
But you just said no…..

Intro

This is a message to the girl on the bus
Ya the one who pretends she doesn’t notice
I admit it I guess I got a crush
Maybe I just don’t know how to show it

You sip your coffee and I take a drink of mine
Sitting so close but hardly ever speaking
Reading a book or sleeping sometimes
Try to read you mind and wonder what your thinking

You look at me that way, makes me want to come out and say
Hey girl-your so fine, we should have some fun sometime
If it would be all right I just wanna take you out tonight
But you’ve got a date….

This is a message to the girl on the bus
I wrote this song to tell you what I’m thinking
I’m disappointed ‘cuz they’ll probly be no ‘us’
What would you want with a skanky musician

You look at me that way, makes me want to come out and say
Hey girl-your so fine, we should have some fun sometime
Just want to be your friend, but you turned me down again
So I bought a car…
