A bus ride through the city’s toilet
Begins with an evening that a bum would like to forget
He drifts in and out of a conscious state
I don’t want to know what happened last night so late
Someone gets on with a hat from the Witness Protection Program
Does he want to get shot, or is he just being a ham?
A young woman applies her many cosmetics, how much is anyone’s guess
Among this group, who is she trying to impress?
At City Hall, the bus shelter is not just a place to wait
For some it’s a residence with a cheap rate
At the Sutherland Hotel, an ambulance is parked outside
Likely another repeat customer will get a free ride
The Selkirk Avenue clientele fill the bus with an eclectic aroma
The mix of vomit and beer is enough to put anyone into a coma
On the dark street a jogger runs, what the heck?
He’s probably not playing with a full deck
Weirdos abound causing a fuss
And in Winnipeg, they’re all taking the bus
