It is a regular song at gigs and everyone likes it I should say.

It is indeed very efficient: the lyrics are simple, the chorus even more so. So everybody can sing it along. It is just a perfect song to "make you smile".

In 2002, the song was covered by Lenny Beige during a Divine Comedy concert at Edinburgh.

It describes the people who see on a bus, as National Express is a British bus company.

"Tomorrow Belongs To Me" is a song from Cabaret and the tune on that line is that of the song.
