Crosstime Bus

So what do you do when reading makes you sick? Well, if you were clever enough to bring a guitar along on your cruise, you end up writing a song.

Looking for a place
Lost in time and space?
Just one low fare
Takes you anywhere.
I'm the crazy cuss
On the Crosstime Bus.
Come on and take a ride with me.

I'll take you on a journey to Oz.
If they ask why, say "Just because."
Any fairy tale land
Of which you're a fan
Can be your destination with me.

If outer space
Is your choice of place,
From Luna City bars
To the sands of Mars.
If you'd have a little fun
On the asteroid run,
Come on and take a ride with me.

A torch ship's just the thing
To take you from here to the ring.
The system's free
At accel one gee.
Come on and take a ride with me.

(Bridge)
I'll take you to the worlds of the Hub
Or down into Nemo's sub.
You can be any place that you want to be
On the Crosstime Bus with me.

Looking for a place
Lost in time and space?
Just one low fare
Takes you anywhere.
I'm the crazy cuss
On the Crosstime Bus.
Come on and take a ride with me.

If you don't want to change,
Just rearrange.
If you're looking for the door,
'Cause your life's a bore.
Just one more pass
Through the Looking Glass.
Come on and take a ride with me.

Ladies, tired of your man?
You want to be holding another hand?
If the name of the game
Is to fan an old flame,
Come on and take a ride with me.

(Bridge)
Anything you want to know,
Just step aboard and we'll go.
One quick slip and we're there.
The Crosstime Bus goes everywhere.

Looking for a place
Lost in time and space?
Just one low fare
Takes you anywhere.
I'm the crazy cuss
On the Crosstime Bus.
Come on and take a ride with me.

Looking for a place
Lost in time and space?
Just one low fare
Takes you anywhere.
I'm the crazy cuss
On the Crosstime Bus.
Come on and take a ride with me.

Come on and take a ride with me.
Come on and take a ride with me.
