'O’ Jeepney Driver'


Sung to the tune of "Take Me Home, Country Roads," by John Denver

Almost heaven, Olongapo City,
Green, green mountains, shadow o'r Shit River.
Life is fast here, faster than your eyes,
Filipino haircut, if you butterfly.

O’ Jeepney driver, take me home,
To the girl, I belong,
Giling-giling, all night long,
Take me home, Jeepney driver.

All my mem’ries, are about her,
Sexy lady, down in Subic City.
Dark and thrusty, under the table,
Misty taste of Mojo, make me want to go home.

O’ Jeepney driver, take me home,
To the girl, I belong,
Giling-giling, all night long,
Take me home, Jeepney driver.

I hear her voice in the evening how she calls me,
She says, "Come on honey-ko, it’s time to go to bed.
While walkin’ down the road I get a feelin' that I
Haven’t pissed since yesterday, I’m broke today.*

O’ Jeepney driver, take me home,
To the girl, I belong,
Giling-giling, all night long,
Take me home, Jeepney driver.

O' Jeepney driver, take me home
O' Jeepney driver, take me home.
*Variation: While drivin’ down the road I get a feelin'
She took all my Pesos yesterday, yesterday.

Written by an FTG2 Blaine Collins, US Navy, 1975-1980
