They forced it
On the county school board
And made a lot people mad
They planned to bus
Us off across town
And things got really bad

That's when
The private schools
Were started
And they opened in a rush
But daddy said
Come September
You’ll be riding bus

109 bus
109 bus
You'll be fine
On bus 109

I met Lavonna Jones
In gym class
She said my hair
Had no curl
We played
Basketball together
But came
From different worlds

Lavonna lived down
In the projects
Compared to her
I had so much
You know my life
Was changed forever
All because of bus

One day Lavonna
Came to my house
What people thought
Didn't matter to us
When the lines
Were drawn by colors
We crossed
The line on bus
