Ame Bus ma gyaata, tan, tan, tan!
Ame farva gyaata chhan, chhan, chhan! (2)
Harta, farta, ramta, jamta    (2)
(Ame) Doda dodi karta hooray!     (2)
Ame Bus ma gyaata, tan, tan, tan!
Ame farva gyaata chhan, chhan, chhan!
Bus na stop par laambi kataar,
Bus ne aavta laage bahu vaar (2)
Oobha hatha chela pan chadi gaya pahela   (2)
(Ame) Dhaka muki karta, haalo!  
Ame Bus ma gyaata...
Mummy ane Daddy besi gaya,
ame to vachma oobha rahiya (2)
Ghantadi vaagine Bus to bhaagi   (2)
(Ame) Aachka khaatha Ahu! Ahu! Ahu!   
Ame Bus ma gyaata...
Conductor pooche “Lidhi chhe ticket?”
kahiyu ame “kya chhe besavaani seat?”  (2)
Javu hatu Brent Cross ,
ne pahonchi gaya King’s Cross!  (2)
Masti tofaan karta Oho! Oho! Oho!
Ame Bus ma gyaata...

We went on a bus tan, tan, tan!
We went on a trip chhan, chhan, chhan!
We travelled, we played, we ate, we had fun
We ran all over the place, hooray!
We went on a bus, tan, tan, tan!
We went on a trip chhan, chhan, chhan!
The queue at the bus stop was so long,
And the bus took ages to come
We were standing last but got on first
We pushed and shoved, hooray!
We went on a bus...
Mummy and Daddy took their seats
but we stood in the middle
When the bell rang, the bus zoomed away
We had such a bumpy ride Ahu! Ahu! Ahu!
We went on a bus...
The conductor asked, “Bought a ticket?”
We replied, “Where do we sit?”
We wanted to go to Brent Cross,
But ended up in King’s Cross!
We got up to so much mischief Oho! Oho! Oho!
We went on a bus...
