The 91 Bus Driver's Prayer



Our Father,
Who art in Hendon
Harrow Road be Thy name
Thy Kingston come
Thy Wimbledon
In Erith as it is in Hendon.
Give us this day our Berkhamsted
And forgive us our Westminsters
As we forgive those who Westminster against us.

Lead us not into Temple Station
And deliver us from Ealing,
For thine is the Kingston
The Purley and the Crawley,
For Iver and Iver.
Crouch End.

(Ian Dury)

  1. Haha that's my bus... Did wake up in Hendon once at 3am, what a shock!

  2. Ian Dury is a much under-rated British songwriter. Who woulda thought you could combine music hall with punk?
