lyrics

There will be times in your life when it makes sense to go out on the town and spend every last cent you have on intoxicants. But what goes up must come down, and you're going to have to get yourself home. The problem being that you've missed the last train, have no cash for a cab and are in much too sorry a state for any knight in shining armour to be inclined to come to your assistance.

But never fear for the night bus with shining headlights will gladly pick you up and take you home, no questions asked.

The night bus attracts an interesting breed of human. Those with enough cash for a cab are weeded out. The suits, yuppies and even the hipsters have planned their evenings with enough forethought to avoid the night bus at all costs. You are left with the misfits of society, the fringe-dwellers, students, the occasional shift-worker, but mostly, let's be honest, the severely intoxicated. But there is camaraderie to be found on the night bus. Once aboard, you become one of the gang.

Last time I rode the night bus a girl on the back seat decided to start up a game of Chinese whispers. The first message was passed in a clockwise direction from person to person until it had gone full circle and morphed into something outrageously nonsensical. As was the desired outcome. The next message went in an anti-clockwise direction and all was going swimmmingly until the bloke next to me refused to get close enough to whisper in my ear. I think he thought it gay, and so the game was ruined. How sad is that?

So next time you're on the night bus don't be self-conscious. Get over yourself and rub shoulders with the ragtag gang to which you temporarily belong.
