raredance Req. Songs about Buses (77* d) Lyr Add: AND LEAVE THE DYING TO US 23 Sep 12


This one is a tad out of the mainstream

(Canada 'Greyhound Cannibal' bus song)
& LEAVE THE DYING TO US

Over forty-five miles west of Winnipeg
on a long and desolate stretch,
a passenger woke from a harrowing dream
as a man plunged a knife in his chest.
This young man- was stabbed at least forty times,
then succeeded in losing his head
which the killer paraded to the driver's seat
just to prove that he's totally dead.

    Go Greyhound,
    take the bus.
    Go Greyhound,
    & LEAVE THE DYING TO US.

As the killer continued to mutilate,
munching on his victim's left ear,
the passengers locked him inside the bus,
many sick from the horror and fear.
Vincent Li was that killer with the Rambo knife.
Tim McLean was Vincent's late snack.
With robotic-like movements & steely-eyed gaze,
Vincent carried out his- attack.

    CHORUS

       "Please kill me",
       Li begged his arraignment court.
       "Please kill me",
       he implored.

By Canadian law, if he's found insane,
Li can be freed if deemed not a threat.
But the next time I ride, think I'll take the train.
I don't want to run into him yet.
In the pine-covered wilds within Canada
on some long and desolate stretch,
there's another who's boozed up aboard a bus
and he might want his knife in my neck.

    CHORUS
