"Kiss Me On The Bus" as written by and Paul Westerberg....
On the bus, that's where we're ridin'
On the bus, okay, don't say hi, then
Your tongue, your transfer,
Your hand, your answer

On the bus, everyone's lookin' forward
On the bus, I am lookin' forward
And everything ain't okay
I might die 'fore Monday
They're all watchin' us

Kiss me on the bus
Kiss me on the bus
Ooo if you knew how I felt now
You wouldn't act so adult now
Hurry, hurry, here comes my stop

On the bus, watch our reflection
On the bus, I can't stand no rejection
C'mon, let's make a scene
Oh, baby, don't be so mean
They're all watchin' us

Kiss me on the bus
Kiss me on the bus
Oh if you knew how I felt now
You wouldn't act so adult now
Hurry, hurry, here comes my stop

Ooo if you knew how I felt now
You wouldn't act so adult now
They're all watchin' us

Kiss me on the bus
Kiss me on the bus
Kiss me on the bus
Kiss me on the bus

    General Commentshould be:
    On the bus, everyone's lookin' forward
    On the bus, I am lookin' forward

    my favorite line - he's lookin' forward literally, as well as lookin' forward to kissing her on the bus.
    Her reply: "thanks, the lips'll be fine"
    harhar.

    General CommentTo me Paul sounds really freakin desperate in this song. It's not just that he sees this girl on the bus and thinks she's attractive. "I might die 'fore Monday" makes me think that if she doesn't pay him some attention he might go home and hang himself over the weekend or something.

    General CommentI think it was just trying to be a little goofy. He askes her to kiss him, she said something to effect of "No, but I'm sure you'll be ok." Perhaps not goofy, but kinda of witty but obnoxious.
    Anyway, I think it's a pretty cute song. I'm impressed they managed to make it work. Though I was thinking it would be more about elementary school kids just from the title.

    General CommentI think it's a more subtle tongue-in-cheek expression of the Peter Pan syndrome that is so prevalent in other 'Mats songs; it's about the kind of things that seem sooo important when you're 13 years old.

    General CommentI dunno, I'm getting a real high school vibe from this. You know, freshman/sophomore year before you "might drive home one day." Hah.

    (And I'm only saying this because it actually applied to me... Oh, nostalgia.)

    General CommentI always thought it was: "I ain't lookin' forwar", as he is looking at the girl.

    General CommentMaybe it's about a guy who takes a road trip to the big city with his girlfriend and he's playing around with her...just wanting some attention. I'm guessing that's it :)
