Romancing the buses

Inig human nakog dukdok ning maong lindog diri sa opisina sa Cebu Daily News, molabang ko sa parking lot sa SM, luyo sa hotel nga Radisson Blu para mosakay og libre sa bus nga mopadulong sa SM Seaside. Buhaton ko kini bisag wala koy paliton sa maong mall tungod kay taga Mambaling man ako ug mahimo rang molakaw ko paingon sa amo kon dili man gani ako makabukong og laing bus nga adto mohunong duol sa flyover sa among barangay.

Tungod tingali kay taga dakbayan ko, usa ka urban dweller nga jeepney ang primerong mode of transportation, bation ko ang gamay nga “high” matag sakay nako og bus. Ang kasagaran nakong masakyang bus paingon sa south mao ang Bato-Oslob route sa Ceres liner kon mobisita kos Negros diin tua nanimuyo ang kaliwat sa akong amahan. Mosakay usab akog bus paingon sa norte kon mokuyog kos akong higala nga si Dodoy paingon sa Bantayan Island inig kwarisma.

Nalingaw akog sakay ning MyBus sa SM tugod kay gawas nga libre, dagko usab ang mga bintana ug makit-an ang tibuok hawan sa SRP. Daghang mga kanta ang mosulod sa akong hunahuna matag sakay ning maong bus. Sama sa “Grey Hound” ug “Bus Stop.” Pero ang kasagarang madunggan ko nga magtingkagol sa akong bagulbagol mao ang “Magic Bus” sa The Who. Ania ang lyrics sa maong kanta. Kamoy na lay pangita sa tuno niani sa YouTube.

“Magic Bus” (by The Who)

Every day I get in the queue (Too much, Magic Bus)/To get on the bus that takes me to you (Too much, Magic Bus)/I’m so nervous, I just sit and smile (Too much, Magic Bus)/Your house is only another mile (Too much, Magic Bus).

Thank you, driver, for getting me here (Too much, Magic Bus)/You’ll be an inspector, have no fear (Too much, Magic Bus)/I don’t want to cause no fuss (Too much, Magic Bus)/But can I buy your Magic Bus? (Too much, Magic Bus)
Nooooooooo!

I don’t care how much I pay (Too much, Magic Bus)/I wanna drive my bus to my baby each day (Too much, Magic Bus).

I want it, I want it, I want it, I want it . . . (You can’t have it!)/Thruppence and sixpence every day.

Just to drive to my baby/Thruppence and sixpence each day/‘Cause I drive my baby every way.

Magic Bus, Magic Bus, Magic Bus . . .

I said, now I’ve got my Magic Bus (Too much, Magic Bus)/I said, now I’ve got my Magic Bus (Too much, Magic Bus)/I drive my baby every way (Too much, Magic Bus)/Each time I go a different way (Too much, Magic Bus).

I want it, I want it, I want it, I want it . . .

Every day you’ll see the dust (Too much, Magic Bus)/As I drive my baby in my Magic Bus (Too much, Magic Bus).
