I learned to fix bikes because if I didn't fix the problem, the story line of this song was my fate.
Chances are, unless you happen to be a black male who grew up in a poor part of the east bay who never got involved with the "thug" mentality, you won't particularly sympathize with the protagonist's lyrics.
Suffice it to say this is not merely a bus ride into a fanciful hypothetical for the sake of an amusing story line. It is quite an accurate description of travel via AC Transit in certain neighborhoods, from the inexplicably long delays to the fun characters on the bus.
I particularly like skit 2: "A-yo, you Rosa Parks' son motherfucker? Bring your ass back here..."
