Philadelphia native Frankie Smith is known most for the joyously nonsensical 1981 funk hit "Double Dutch Bus."  Still smarting from missing out on a bus-driving gig, Smith recorded an expletive-laced improvised rap about a "double Dutch bus." The engineers laughed and told Smith that they couldn't use that and Smith re-recorded a cuss-free version of the rap. Selling over two-million copies and included on the Children of Tomorrow album, "Double Dutch Bus" parked at number one R&B for four weeks, going to number 30 pop in the summer of 1981.
