"The Wheels on the Bus" is an anonymous United States[citation needed] folk song dating no later than 1939.[1] It is a popular children's song in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom and is often sung by children on bus trips to keep themselves amused. It has a very repetitive rhythm, making the song easy for a large number of people to sing, in a manner similar to the song "99 Bottles of Beer". It is based on the traditional British song "Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush".
