Video: Kris Kross – I Missed The Bus (1992)

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Mr. Gripples and I were talking today, and he said he can still recite the whole first verse of this song (prooooove iiiiit). I remember this cassette being my pre-soccer “get pumped” music back in the day, and this was one of my fav’s.

There’s some unflattering pics of Chris “Mac Daddy” Kelly that recently surfaced over at Concrete Loop. As a bald man of almost 7 years, I want to donate a Head Blade to him. I understand it’s not his fault, but you’ve got to wear a hat or shave those loose hairs, man.  Going out like that (and with pants still backwards) “is something you should never, ever, ever do again”

    Ok. In order to back up my claim I am going to type all the words I can remember. I swear I haven’t listened to this song in at least 4-5 years so I’m not even 100% sure its the first verse. I’ll write it, listen to the video, and see how I did. I promise I’m being legit.

    I was up (I WAS UP!) but I laid back down
    thinkin I could chill till the time came around
    and I did (HE DID!) but a little too long
    cause when I woke up yo the bus was gone
    I almost broke my neck tryin to get out the door
    and i chased the bus till my feet was sore
    on the trail (THE TRAIL!) yo I couldn’t catch up
    it must have been the day for me to have bad luck

    *never actually figured out this part when i was younger*

    something bout MONEY something bout BUSTED
    and when I got in i was really disgusted

    cause when i got to school it was the same old thing
    stepped in my class then the school bell rang
    but there was nothing i could do
    i tried to explain, but the teacher treated me like i was playing a game
    YOU LOSE YOU LOSE, something bout win?
    I’m gonna never miss my bus again.

    I guess I didn’t know it as well as I thought but I’m pretty sure I got at least 80% of it right.

    OH DAMN!

    I don’t think I’ve ever been this proud of myself. I was a little disappointed when I realized it was THE SECOND VERSE instead of the first, but I’m smiling from ear to ear right now. That song might be the greatest throwback of all time. Jump was a tight song, but the real Kriss Kross fans know that “I Missed The Bus” was the real jam.

    Romer, I swear on my life that was recited before I watched the video. And 4-5 years might be wrong, I’m guessing 7-8.

    I’m not even mad, I’m impressed.
