John Cronin is a man Who doesn’t take too kindly To being told by others What to do or what to say He’s not a sort of character About whom songs are written But I’ll sing you this song About John Cronin anyway John Cronin is a man I think Of this we can be certain Who feels he's seen a truth That all the others seem to miss No corporation tie for John He'd not be seen dead in one I fear he feels he's found a way To prove that he exists This Cronin is unsound He doesn’t listen to advice He seems to think that none of this is Serious Habits must he mend A message must we send John Cronin is a man About whom colleagues speak of warmly But timetables are slipping And now something has to give It pains me to inform him He’s on a final warning The union has done The very best it can for him Now Cronin is unwell The doctor says he’ll be away for weeks And who can tell if this is Serious? Flowers should we send? Could this be the end? John Cronin was a man Who didn’t take too kindly To being told by others What to do or what to say He’s not a sort of character About whom songs are written But I’ll sing you this song About John Cronin anyway I’ll sing you this song About John Cronin anyway now I’ll sing you this song About John Cronin anyway I’ll sing you this song About John Cronin anyway now I’ll sing you this song About John Cronin anyway

Lofty and Eastman are waiting They’ve heard that soon there could be news Lofty and Eastman are waiting together What else is there really to do? 10 o' clock now in the evening An hour past clocking in time Lofty and Eastman are working together In a room at the end of the line Telling each other their stories Piece by piece sharing their lives Lofty and Eastman are talking together The world hurries onwards outside And though Maybe tomorrow Will come And bring­ with it news Lofty and Eastman could wait here forever Chewing the fat just one man to another Or not saying much, just wondering whether They can hold back the sun from the moon? Lofty and Eastman are waiting They’ve heard that soon there could be news Lofty and Eastman are waiting together What else is there really to do? Five o'clock now in the morning, Grey light creep in through the blinds Lofty and Eastman could wait here forever But a new dawn is soon to arrive Lofty and Eastman could wait here forever But a new dawn is soon to arrive.

about

Two Songs About Buses is a concept single; both songs are inspired by Seeing Red, a BBC documentary filmed at the London Buses depot in Westbourne Park on the eve of the 1992 General Election. The cassette is accompanied by a 12-page fanzine paying tribute to London buses, and the men and women who drive them.
