Lyrics as they were originally found in the December 1937 issue of American Childhood:
1. The wheels of the bus go round and round,
Round and round, round and round;
The wheels of the bus go round and round,
Over the city streets.
2. The horn of the bus goes "Too-to-too,
the horn of the bus goes "Too-to-too"
At the other busses it meets.
3. The people in the bus go up and down,
Up and down,
up and down;
The people in the bus go up and down,
Bouncing off their seats.
Note that this version does not make any reference to the melody that is commonly attached to the song."
