With the Olympics coming up and London's buses the subject of debate we thought we might publish these words from a fine man of music who left us early aged 57.

The Bus Driver's Prayer 

(By the late great Rock lyricist Ian Dury)

Our Father
Who art in Hendon
Harrow Road be they name
Thy Kingston come
Thy Wimbledon
In Erith as it is in Hendon
Give us this day our Berkhampstead
And forgive us our Westminsters
As we forgive those who Westminster against us
Lead us not into Temple Station
But deliver us from Ealing
For thine is the Kingston
The Purley and the Crawley
For Iver and Iver
Crouch End
