The Odd Bus


(Gerald Cohen, music)

If a public bus has a certain number,
the rules on that bus must change.
I know that in a democracy, that sounds a little strange.

If a public bus stops at certain places,
all passengers should beware.
The seating on that public bus is neither just nor fair.

It makes no difference what you think
or what principles you hold.
It’s been decreed that on that bus,
as a woman you are told
where to sit, go to the back
‘cause that’s the will of G-d.

Don’t you think in a democracy
that is a little odd?
