On the Road Again

Black and Whites

So I missed my transfer at metro center today, and while waiting on the platform and backtracking, I thought of a little metro song. I don’t know why, but Willie Nelson’s On the Road Again popped into my head. for those of you who don’t know it, here it is for your listening pleasure:

but here are my lyrics:

I missed my transfer, man
went all the way to the smith-so-ni-an
I wish other regulars would nudge me to get up
now I have to board the right train again

I missed my transfer, man
finished the express and I am bored again
I fall asleep leaving head grease on the glass
now I have board a train the other way.

I’m not a Metro fan
the rising fares and bad service on the weekends
its a rip off, man
no transparency and management doesn’t care
but we care

I pity tourists here
they try to squeeze into the closing doors
I’d like to help but the annoucer says “stay clear”
I can’t help but pity tourists here

some love the subway here
they’ve never ridden in new york, london or taipei
it costs more for what?
carpet, cushy seats don’t belong on subway trains
do they care?

I missed my transfer, man
I didn’t wake at metro center, man
I needed red line but rode orange way to far
now I have to board the right train again
