DOES THIS BUS STOP AT 82ND STREET?

Live 29 Oct 1974 version


[Spoken intro:] Seasons come, seasons go, changes are made, microphones fall, but the bus never stops.

Hey bus driver, keep the change, bless your children, give them names
Don't you trust men who walk with canes
Drink this and you'll grow wings on your feet
Broadway Mary, Joan Fontaine, advertiser on a downtown train
Christmas crier bustin' cane, she is in love again

Dock worker's dreams mix with panther schemes to someday own the rodeo
Tainted women in VistaVision perform for out-of-state kids at the late show

Wizard imps, sweat sock pimps, interstellar mongrel nymphs
Rex said that lady left him limp
Love is like that
Queen of Diamonds, and, uh, Ace of Spades, newly discovered lovers of the Everglades
Take out a full page ad in the trades, uh, to announce their arrival
Do that!

Mary Lou found out how to cope, she climbs to heaven on a gyroscope
Daily News asked her for the dope
She, "Man, the dope's that there's still hope"
Huh!

Senorita, Spanish rose, wipes her eyes and blows her nose
Uptown in Harlem she throws a rose, to some lucky young matador
Whoa!

Whoa oh oh, whoa
