Wheels On The Bus

The ‘Wheels On The Bus’ song is an early childhood classic. It is a great circle time song that helps teach sequencing and improves memory skills, listening skills, large motor skills, taking turns, and generally having fun in a group. A fun way to sing it is with props and appropriate hand actions. Some props for the various verses include a baby doll for when the baby goes “wah, wah, wah”, two drumsticks from the music center to act as windshield wipers for that verse and a horn for the bus horn when it goes “beep.beep,beep” and so on. Be as creative as possible!

The only verse I don’t hear in this version is “the money on the bus goes “clink, clink, clink”. You can add it easily – give each child a few coins to pay the driver when they get on the bus and give the bus driver an empty coffee can to collect the fares. When this verse comes up the driver can shake the can to the “clink, clink, clink” chorus! The children never seem to tire from this great action song. Let them take turns doing the different jobs of the song. (The driver, the mommy, the horn, the wipers….etc.)

LYRICS:
The Wheels on the Bus (People on the Bus)

(Talk) I like to sing this song when I go for a ride with my mom. I sing it when I go on a field trip with my class. I sing it when I pretend I’m driving somewhere. Why don’t we all sing it right now? YEAH!

The people on the bus go up and down, up and down, up and down. The people on the bus go up and down, all through the town.

The driver on the bus says, Move on back, move on back, move on back. The driver on the bus says, Move on back. All through the town.

The horn on the bus goes beep, beep, beep. Beep, beep, beep. Beep, beep, beep. The horn on the goes beep, beep, beep all through the town.

The wipers on the bus go swish, swish, swish. Swish, swish, swish. Swish, swish, swish. The wipers on the bus go swish, swish, swish, all through the town.

The seatbelts on the bus go click, click, click. Click, click, click. Click, click, click. The seatbelts on the bus go click, click, click, all through the town.

The wheels on the bus go round and round, round and round, round and round. The wheels on the bus go round and round all through the town.

The baby on the bus goes, Wah, wah, wah. Wah, wah, wah. Wah, wah, wah, wah. The baby on the bus goes, Wah, wah, wah, all through the town.

The mommy on the bus goes, Shhh don’t cry. Shhh don’t cry. Shhh don’t cry. The mommy on the bus goes, Shhh don’t cry, all through the town.

The cow on the bus goes, Moo, moo, moo. A cow! You can’t fit a cow on the bus. It’s too big! No! The people on the bus go up and down, up and down, up and down. The people on the bus go up and down, all through the town.
