Wheels on the Bus (and variations)

My Wheels on the Bus is based on Walter Minkel’s version, then simplified just a little more. And because storytimers love to invent songs based on familiar tunes, I’ve included a couple more songs that follow the same pattern.

Wheels on the Bus
C

The wheels on the bus go round and round,
G7               

Round and round, round and round,
C

The wheels on the bus go round and round,
G7              C

All through the town.

Verses
The wipers on the bus go swish, swish, swish...
The horn on the bus goes beep, beep, beep...
The doors on the bus go open and shut...
The babies on the bus go wah, wah, wah (or up & down)...
The driver on the bus says “Move on back"...
The mommies/daddies on the bus say “I love you"...
The coins on the bus go plink, plink, plink...
The umbrellas on the bus go drip, drip, drip...


All the Little Ducks Go Upside Down
C

All the little ducks go upside down,
G7
         
Upside down, upside down
C

All the little ducks go upside down,
          G7                          C
When they dabble at the bottom of the pond.

Verses
All their little beaks go snap, snap, snap...
All their little tails go wiggle, wiggle, wiggle...


The Fish in the Sea
C
The fish in the sea go swish swish swish,
G7
               
Swish swish swish, swish swish swish,
C

The fish in the sea go swish swish swish,
  G7   C
All day long.

Verses
The dolphins in the sea swim round and round...
The jellies in the sea go wiggle, wiggle, wiggle...
The sharks in the sea go chomp, chomp, chomp...
The crabs in the sea go pinch, pinch, pinch...
The sand in the sea drifts down, down, down...
The waves on the sea go up and down...
