I had a broken heart and a broken heel
And a breakdown when those big, old wheels
Left with him and left me
In a cloud of deep, old dust

She was sittin' there with her beehive hair
And said, "Honey, that's a waste of good mascara"
She handed me a pink Kleenex
And I'll never forget what she said next

Boys and buses got a lot in common
They both pick up speed when you try to stop 'em
You could waste your breath, you could scream and cuss 'em
But there's no use chasing after boys and buses

She said, "Some leave with a guitar case
"And some wind up at an army base
"And some make out much under the hood
"And some roll it on out to Hollywood"

But the cost is lost when the ticket's bought
And you can't catch what don't want to be caught
But when those tail lights start to dim
There's another one coming right around the bend

'Cause boys and buses got a lot in common
They both pick up speed when you try to stop 'em
You could waste your breath, you could scream and cuss 'em
But there's no use chasing after boys and buses

Sometimes, love and transportation
Will spin your wheels and keep you waiting
But anytime you think you've missed it
Just give it ten or fifteen minutes

Boys and buses got a lot in common
They both pick up speed when you try to stop 'em
You could waste your breath, you could scream and cuss 'em
But there's no use chasing after boys and buses

Yeah, there's no use chasing after boys and buses
