"Bus Rider" as written by and Kurt Winter....
Get up in the morning, get on the bus
Get up in the morning like the rest of us
Places to go, important people to meet
Better not get up or you might lose your seat

(Bus rider)

Leave the house at six o'clock to be on time
Leave the wife and kids at home to make a dime
Grab your lunch pail, check for mail in your slot
You won't get your cheque if you don't punch the clock

(Bus rider)

(Bus rider)

Grab the evening paper, and sit down in your chair
Grab yourself a toupee, 'cause you're losing your hair
Doesn't matter what you do, you've nothing to lose
I'm so awful goddamn glad I'm not in your shoes

(Bus rider)

(Bus rider)
You know you'll ride it every single morning today
(Bus rider)
Ride, ride, little man
(Bus rider)
I don't want to ride, no I don't want to ride
(Bus rider)
Get up in the morning, get on the bus
(Bus rider)
Oh, little man riding upside down, yeah
(Bus rider)
Mm, no I don't want to ride
(Bus rider)

    General CommentI would say that Randy Bachman took this to a whole new level in "Takin' Care Of Business". So glad not to have to ride the bus to make a living. Who made that possible for you, Randy? We, the bus riding people who buy your albums and go to your concerts. Shame on us.

    General CommentThis was the first song on the first album after Randy left the band. "Takin' Care of Business" is not as hard on the folks stuck in the regular life as this song.

    When I was first getting into this song, I kept trying to remember the lyrics. I kept hearing a Beastie Boys kind of sound and the lyrics "If you don't punch the clock, then you won't get paid".

    General CommentI like this song a lot better than Takin' Care of Business. To me the guitar hook is awesome and the lyrics say a lot more.
