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 day long

the people on the bus go
up and down
up and down
up and down
the people on the bus go
up and down
all day long

the driver on the bus says
move on back
move on back
move on back
the driver on the bus says
move on back
all day long

the babies on the bus go
whaa whaa whaa
whaa whaa whaa
whaa whaa whaa
the babies on the bus go
whaa whaa whaa
all day long

the mommies on the bus go
shhh shhh shhh
shhh shhh shhh
shhh shhh shhh
the mommies on the bus go
shhh shhh shhh
all day long

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 day long

all day long
all day long
all day long

    Communist propaganda metaphor. The "wheels" are constantly revolving, or "revolutionary", carrying the "bus" (aka Bolshevism) all around the "town" (the world). The people (proletariat) go "up and down" (they rise up and are put down, multiple times, and cannot be completely stopped), all around the "town" (the world). The "driver" (Lenin) directs the people deeper into the "bus" (Bolshevism). The "babies" (dissenters), not knowing their place in the world, complain, but the "mommies" (the kgb, etc.) have to put them in their place and silence them. The horn (the vanguard of the Soviet Union) proclaims the mantle of Communism all around the world.
    (by the way, this is satire, so please don't get too offended by it. You should hear me talk about Mary Poppins).
