lyrics

Once upon a time in two double oh
seven the beginnin of a story long ago
Started off slow then pow it’s like wow,
Buckle up now cuz we gonna tell ya how
The desert bus crowd put money down
thank you, bank that twenty two thou
The first desert buck it made us all proud
shut it all down but now it’s comin back around
2008, date it it one year later
First year was great but our total’s even greater
Son beat the father like Luke and Darth Vader
Five days bussin and we’re stackin up the paper
Seventy K, every day
we play we Can’t believe the payment
made for kids from out the basement
justify the time that we spent
Make this ride a yearly event
Now it’s time to finally present
DB3, 2K9
Easily beat last time
one hundred forty thousand
is the final total
We streamin out the house and
our audience is global
We doin calls with JoCo
Wil Wheaton’s gettin social
It’s octopimp and stowell
The bidding’s going postal

She’s up all night to the sun
We’re up all night to drive some
She’s up all night to have fun
We’re up all night to get bussy

Another year, desert bus has come again, it’s 20 10
We gotta spend
five days, twenty-two hours at the wheel
donate close to a quarter of a mil
Hit the big time, get the big picture
Church of the bus got a new scripture
Giving it away to make us all richer
Proud to say this drive’s a nerd fixture

Nerd fixture hallelujah
Nerd fixture hallelujah
Nerd fixture hallelujah
Cuz uptown bus gonna give it to you
Cuz uptown bus gonna give it to you
Cuz uptown bus gonna give it to you
Saturday night and we in the spot
Don’t believe me just QWOP

One for the money
Two for the road
Three for the chat, about to explode
Four hours reckoned till I’m handing off my shift
Five is the seconds til an animated gif
Six sided dice like we’re rolling up a sheet
And the bus never stops, we be rollin in our sleep
Seven for the auctions
Eight for the bids
And nine is the years we’ve been bussing for the kids

Desert Bus Five it’s 20 11
3 7 6 K 1 6 7
Space bids like we popped the cheat code
Over 9000 minutes on the road
A year goes by and it’s Desert bus 6
AeroCmdr Kroze and Dix
Killin moderation like the grim reaper
Gotta take a shot for asking“Who’s Pika?”

Dance Break!

Desert bus 7, it’s time again
Call the derpline and tell your friends
Blame Winston when the camera fell
Chat going nuts for silica gel
Very charity, Much donations
Lack of plumbing insulation
6.45 day duration
Half a million is the statement
DB8 is looking nice
Firing up our new Device
Played so long we might just win it
$67 bucks a minute
Now it’s time for DB9
Eyes are on the finish line
Get on board, we want that million
Drive forever for the children

One for the money
Two for the road
Three for the chat, about to explode
Four hours reckoned till I’m handing off my shift
Five is the seconds til an animated gif
Six sided dice like we’re rolling up a sheet
And the bus never stops, we be rollin in our sleep
Seven for the auctions
Eight for the bids
And nine is the years we’ve been bussing for the kids

New merch! tee.pub/lic/VAcbB0o-soo

Mocking music that takes itself a little (or a lot) too seriously, MC 117 produces pan-referential straight-faced commentary of hip hop, video games, and pop culture at large. Focusing on audial allusions and lyrical sleight-of-hand, this satire auteur carves his own genre in the fertile ground between "knockoff" and "ripoff". ... more
