about

The idea for this song is decades old. A friend shared with me that when she was a girl, she would sing "You know the busses," while driving in the car. Once her dad tried to sing along, but she snapped "Daddy! You no know the busses!"

It turns out that it's a timeless classic. Children LOVE replying YES I DO! (Yes WE do in crowds) whenever I say, "You don't know the buses." This song is a perfect chance to take an imaginary bus ride around the living room or classroom, but listen carefully for the red lights!

lyrics

You know the busses
You know the busses
You know the busses
You know the busses
Because the people in a rush ride the bus
The people in a rush ride the bus

You don't know the busses
(Yes I do!)
You don't know the busses
(Yes I do!)

Because my brother rides the bus
My brother rides the bus
My brother rides the school bus
My brother packs a lunch

You know the busses
You know the busses
You know the bus

And my sister rides the bus
My sister rides the bus
My sister rides the school bus
My sister packs a lunch

You don't know the busses
(Yes I do!)
You don't know the busses
(Yes I do!)

Because my grandma rides the bus
My grandma rides the bus
My grandma rides the city bus
My grandma's in a rush!

You know the busses
You know the busses
You know the bus

And my goldfish rides the bus
My goldfish rides the bus
He's in a little bowl
And he's swimming over bumps

You don't know the busses
(Yes I do!)
You don't know the busses
(Yes I do!)

Let's get on the bus!

We're on the busses
We're on the busses
We're on the busses
We're on the busses

Because the people in a rush ride the bus
The people in a rush ride the bus
The people in a rush, that's us
The people in a rush ride the bus
