Roll bus roll, take me off
A rolled sweatshirt makes the windows soft
If I fall asleep donít wake me up
Roll bus roll take me up
Midnight humming on a Monday night
Iím gonna go again I might not feel alright
Nap-sac, soft pack, bumper car and a train
42nd street greyhound again

Roll bus roll, take me off
A rolled sweatshirt makes the windows soft
If I fall asleep donít wake me up
Roll bus roll take me up
old bodegas and old street lights
Harlem looks so warm tonight
Just thinking about the sweet things makes me wanna cry
Gotta take two tylenols and close my eyes

Roll bus roll, take me off
A rolled sweatshirt makes the windows soft
If I fall asleep donít wake me up
Roll bus roll take me up
I wasnít designed to move so fast
I wasnít designed to have so much past
I wasnít designed for your kind of fun
So sometimes I stay and sometimes I run
And when I think that the sun is setting on my youth
Thinks that old shadow gets taller, I guess its fine
Just as long as the bus makes the city behind me get smaller and smaller

Roll bus roll, take me off
A rolled sweatshirt makes the windows soft
If I fall asleep donít wake me up
Roll bus roll take me up
2 weeks in England 2 weeks in town
Another hundred bucks of medication down
Another e-mail that I need to send,
Another situation that I need to end
Midnight humming on a Monday night
Iím gonna go again I might not feel alright
Itís a bitter pill and itís still the same
42nd street greyhound again

And if I get one seat I hope it the window
And if I get 2 seats ill just lie down
And if I get 1 seat and its just he aisle
Ill still be asleep for the hundredth mile

And then the bus is just inside of me
Then some where inside me thereís my brain
Then somewhere and then thereís the bus
And then somewhere and then thereís me again

Roll bus roll, take me off
A rolled sweatshirt makes the windows soft
If I fall asleep donít wake me up
Roll bus roll take me up

Take me up

tylenols= common pain killer pill, acetominiphen

cheers hamlet, I thought the 'old bodego's' was refering to a type of car Laughing

The pills I knew but didn't know how to spell Rolling Eyes

Listening to the song again I hear he says "Tylenol" not "tuinol." That's an over-the-counter pain killer, acetominiphen, much less serious and not addictive. Sorry for the mistake. Maybe I'll try to edit it.

I must have been thinking of the Anxiety Attack video when I thought of sleeping pills. It's much better to avoid those altogether and not wind up like Elvis.

Yeah, the whole dead on a toilet thing doesn't really sound like fun to me!

worth a read if you want a laugh

In Pharmacology, all drugs have two names, a trade name and generic name. For example, the trade name of Tylenol also has a generic name of Acetaminophen. Aleve is also called Naproxen. Amoxil is also call moxicillin and Advil is also called Ibuprofen.

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin

Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin. Pfizer Corp. announced today that Viagra will soon be available in liquid form, and will be marketed by Pepsi Cola as a power beverage suitable for use as a mixer. It will now be possible for a man to literally pour himself a stiff one. Obviously we can no longer call this a soft drink, and it gives new meaning to the names of "cocktails", "highballs" and just a good old-fashioned "stiff drink." Pepsi will market the new concoction by the name of: "MOUNT & DO" Rolling Eyes Laughing

Thought for the day: There is more money being spent on breast implants and Viagra today than on Alzheimer's research.

This means that by 2040, there should be a large elderly population with perky boobs and huge erections and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them....

I believe trinoassatol is more or a preventative measure that a cure Wink
