Stop the bus!
I wanna be lonely
When seconds pass slowly
And years go flying by.
You gotta stop the bus
And get off here.
Enough's enough,
And I'm leaving this factory

Now all she wants
Is food on the table
And I won't be able
To bring it home.
No, I won't, come on,
'Cause all I need, yeah, is free
'Cause I'm a factory.

Did Mother Nature tell you:
"Boy, you come and go as you please"
That's what she said to me
But Big Brother got the keys
And I got Jackson Cannery

(Whoa-oh)(Whoa-oh)(Whoa-oh)(Whoa-oh)

Millionaires (millionaires)
and mill rats live side by side (side by side)
Messed up my brother's mind,
He's far (far) from earth.
Tell me, what's he worth? (Nothing!)
The same as you, the same as me
In this factory

Did Mother Nature tell you:
"Boy you come and go as you please."
That's what she said to me
But Big brother got the keys
And I got Jackson Cannery

(Whoa-oh) Come on. (Whoa-oh)
(Whoa-oh)
(That was pretty good, try it again!)(You think so?)
(Whoa-oh)

It's 4 in the morning
Mother don't know
That I'm goin' far away
She's whispering to the moon:
"I hope he don't join you soon."

Baby boss
Climbs up from his soapbox
Great Caesar's ghost
Knows what's best for me
He says: "Stop the bus!"

Did Mother Nature tell you:
"Boy, you come and go as you please."
That's what she said to me
But Big brother got the keys
And I got Jackson Cannery
(Oh, Big brother got the keys)
(And I got Jackson Cannery)
Oh, Big brother got the keys
And I got Jackson Cannery
