article imageVideo: Saudi Arabian ‘No woman, no drive’ song goes viral

By Richard Milnes     Oct 28, 2013 in Odd News
A video, featuring a song which parodies Bob Marley’s ‘No woman, no cry’ and mocks the Saudi ban on women drivers has gone viral.
The video was uploaded by Alaa Wardi and has already received more than three million views since being uploaded on 26 October 2013, just two days ago.
As reported previously on Digital Journal, Interior Ministry spokesman General Mansur al-Turki said: "It is known that women in Saudi are banned from driving and laws will be applied against violators and those who demonstrate in support" of this cause.
The Australian reports that dozens of Saudi women have taken to the roads around Saudi Arabia defying a new surge of warnings from the government, mosque pulpits and radio channels to drop their challenge to a de facto ban on driving by women.
The words to the song (which is sung in English in the video) are subtitled in both Arabic and English. Here is the English…
No woman, no drive (repeated)
Say I remember when you used to sit,
In the family car, but backseat,
Ova-ovaries all safe and well,
So you can make lots and lots of babies,
Good friends we had and good friends we lost,
On the highway,
In this bright future,
You can’t forget your past,
So put your car key away,
No woman, no drive,
No woman, no drive,
Hey little sister, don’t touch that wheel,
No woman, no drive,
I remember when you used to sit,
In the family car, but backseat,
Of course the driver can take you everywhere
Because the Queens don’t drive.
But you can cook for me my dinner
Of which I’d share with you.
Your feet is your only carriage,
But only inside the house – and when I say it I mean it,
Ev’rything’s gonna be alright (repeated)
No woman, no drive (repeated)
Hey little sister, don’t touch that wheel,
No woman, no drive.
