The Hollies - Bus stop
Tekst en muziek: Graham Gouldman
(1966)






Bus stop, wet day, she’s there, I say: “Please, share my umbrella”
Bus stop, bus goes, she stays, love grows under my umbrella
All that summer we enjoyed it, wind and rain and shine
That umbrella, we employed it, by August she was mine



Every morning I would see her waiting at the stop
Sometimes she’d shopped and she would show me what she bought
Other people stared as if we were both quite insane
Someday my name and hers are going to be the same



That’s the way the whole thing started, silly, but it’s true
Thinkin’ of a sweet romance, beginning in a queue
Came the sun, the ice was melting, no more sheltering now
Nice to think that that umbrella led me to a vow



Every morning I would see her waiting at the stop
Sometimes she’d shopped and she would show me what she bought
Other people stared as if we were both quite insane
Someday my name and hers are going to be the same



Bus stop, wet day, she’s there, I say: “Please, share my umbrella”
Bus stop, bus goes, she stays, love grows under my umbrella
All that summer we enjoyed it, wind and rain and shine
That umbrella, we employed it, by August she was mine
