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 horn on the bus goes beep, beep, beep,

Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep,

The horn on the bus goes beep, beep, beep,

All through the town.


 The babies on the bus go wah, wah, wah,

Wah, wah, wah, wah, wah, wah,

 The parents on the bus go shh, shh, shh,

Shh, shh, shh, shh, shh, shh,

The parents on the bus go shh, shh, shh,

All through the town.
