In memory of Fung Wah Bus Transportation, Inc., the cut-rate bus service shut down last month by the US Department of Transportation after a number of its vehicles failed safety inspections, the New Yorker has produced a music video tribute.
The song, a parody of Bob Dylan’s “Farewell Angelina,” was written and performed by Marc Philippe Eskenazi. Its lyrics capture the downsides of Fung Wah:
“You left me in the bathroom at a bus stop in the rain.”
“You got stuck in a toll booth for cars, Fung Wah, why?”
But it also pays homage to the redeeming quality of the bus service: its remarkably cheap fares.
“Farewell Fung Wah, bus of the crowds.”
And the best line of the song sums it all up:
“I’ll think of you always with nostalgia and fear.”
