Lyrics

PUBLIC TRANSIT ROMANCE ©J.D. Carroll Creative Ventures Music


It was a Public Transit Romance,
leave from the front and pay in advance.
A Public Transit Romance,
rumor has it they were sharing their transfers.

It all started one morn,
a button undone on her lacey collar.
He was caught forlorn,
she was the only one who could change his dollar.

We were all aware,
the operator had no cash; exact fare was required for a...

Public Transit Romance,
leave from the front and pay in advance.
A Public Transit Romance,
rumor has it they were sharing their transfers.

We said,? This could never be.?
You see, she was from Parkview and he was from the West End.
But every morning in the first seat,
there they?d be, they were huggin? and a-kissing.

It was really sweet,
except for Monday, it was sickening on Mondays.

The Public Transit Romance,
leave from the front and pay in advance.
A Public Transit Romance,
rumor has it they were sharing their transfers.

One day she overslept,
she got to the station and her heart was breaking.
She had to catch the express,
knowing full well that they both rode the local.

Imagine her dismay,
when she realized she?d gone to work on a Sunday!
(She was so confused)

The Public Transit Romance,
a mass transit confidante,
an urban transport take-a-chance,
A boat or a plane,
a bus or a train,
it doesn?t matter it?s always the same,
You leave from the front and you pay in advance.

The Public Transit Romance,
rumor has it we?re all sharing our transfers.
