The wheels on the bus song lyrics

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 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 people on the bus go chat, chat, chat Chat, chat, chat Chat, chat, chat The people on the bus go chat, chat, chat 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 waa, waa, waa Waa, waa, waa Waa, waa, waa The babies on the bus go waa, waa, waa All through the town.
