Lyrics

Original

(Bus honks, drives up, doors open)
 
Valerie Frizzle: Seatbelts, everyone!
 
Arnold: Please let this be a normal field trip.
 
Wanda: With the Frizz?
 
Kids except Arnold and Dorothy Ann: No way!
 
Arnold: Ohh!
Little Richard: Cruisin' on down main street. You're relaxed and feelin' good! (Yeah!)
 
Next thing that you know, you're seein'...
 
Valerie Frizzle: (driving into ocean) Wa-ha-ha-hoo!
 
Little Richard: An octopus in the neighborhood?!
 
Surfin' on a sound wave! Swingin' through the stars!
 
Ralphie, Wanda and Carlos: Yee-ha!
 
Little Richard: Take a left at your intestine. Take your second right past Mars!
 
Kids: On The Magic School Bus!
 
Little Richard: Navigate a nostril!
 
(Ralphie sneezing)
 
(class gasping)
 
Kids and Little Richard: Climb on The Magic School Bus!
 
Little Richard: Spank a plankton, too!
 
Wanda: Take that!
 
Kids: On our Magic School Bus!
 
Little Richard: Raft a river of lava!
 
Kids: On The Magic School Bus!
 
Little Richard: Such a fine thing to do!
Kids: Whoa!
 
Little Richard: So strap your bones right to the seat.
 
Come on in and don't be shy.
 
Come on.
 
Just to make your day complete,
 
You might get baked into a pie!
 
Kids and Little Richard: On The Magic School Bus!
 
(Dorothy Ann, Keesha and Ralphie run up to Bus and enter before Bus shapeshifts)
 
Little Richard: Step inside, it's a wilder ride!
 
Come on!
 
(Bus appears under big title that reads "The Magic School Bus...")
 
Kids and Little Richard: Ride on The Magic School Bus!
 
(Bus disappears to reveal title of episode)
 
(Bus honking)
