Buses For Women, By Women.

We’re women and we’re bus drivin’,
’round your neighbourhood.
We only take onboard women,
(and girls)
is that understood?

If you’re a man looking,
hoped to catch a jolly ride,
know we’re pleased to taser,
should you try’an get inside.

We’re out to guard against,
malevolence, attack and rape.
Not only here in London,
we’ve spread ‘cross the landscape.

And it’s not just in England,
we’re needed everywhere.
Depots soon common,
through donations and ticket fares.

Opening up across the world,
like a new found faith.
While culture learns to civilise,
women, will feel safe.
