Subway Sing-Along


The folks from Improv In Toronto were up to their old tricks recently, bringing some more whimsy to unsuspecting underground commuters. Those familiar with the merry band of urban pranksters know the drill: participants meet up, head to a public place, and do something unexpected to make onlookers’ days just a little more interesting. In this particular iteration, the group decided to add a public transit twist to the Discovery Channel’s “I Love the World” song (itself based on the camping tune “I Love the Mountains”), turning it into an ode to the Toronto subway system’s red seats, transfers, and door chimes.
While we at Torontoist appreciate the sentiment of Improv In Toronto’s rose-tinted lyrics, riding the rocket does have its frustrating moments as well. With that in mind, here’s our version of the subway sing-along:


I love the subway
Too bad it’s such a pain
The stairs at Dufferin Station
Flooded by a little rain
And how about some money
For the Downtown Relief Line?
Boom-de-ya-da
Boom-de-ya-da
Boom-de-ya-da
Boom-de-ya-da
And now about those buses
They take us to and fro
It’s just too bad that
They are so frigging slow
Since when does “frequent service”
Mean “in twenty minutes’ time”?
Boom-de-ya-da
Boom-de-ya-da
Boom-de-ya-da
Boom-de-ya-da
Okay, enough complaining
(It’s the Toronto way)
Public transit’s future
Looks much brighter than today
We’re going to take the TTC
Up until the day we die!
Boom-de-ya-da
Boom-de-ya-da
Boom-de-ya-da
Boom-de-ya-da
