The Hollies

The Hollies
Bus Stop

Geschreven door Graham Gouldman die ook hits zou maken als For your love (Yardbirds), I'm not in love (10CC) en No milk today (Herman's Hermits). Gouldman kreeg het idee (uiteraard) op een bus als hij van het werk kwam. De openingszinnen komen van zijn vader die ook wel wat kon schrijven en hem af en toe ideeën gaf. Graham Gouldman maakte daarop zelf de song verder af. Gouldman had op dat moment nog een gewone job overdag in een winkel en speelde 's avonds muziek.

Refrein:
Bus stop, wet day, she's there, I say
Please share my umbrella
Bus stop, bus goes, she stays, love grows
Under my umbrella

Refrein 2:
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
Thinking 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
