Jam Sandwich

Standin’ at the bus stop,

Like a jam sandwich,

I go off to find a different route,

And then the bus turns up,

Oh fuck.

So I’m running back,

To try and catch,

The box of sardines,

I’m banging on the doors,

But the bus driver ignores,

My pleas & my screams,

Of please don’t leave,

Of course he leaves,

And I start to scream,

Ye fuckin’ bastard!
