Magic School Bus (lyrics only)

Motor vehicles—including cars, trucks, and busses—cause air pollution. So when you take a bus, join a carpool, or ride your bike, you are helping to reduce air pollution. Check out today’s air quality  in your community and challenge yourself with the AQI Game Show .
School buses travel approximately 4 billion miles and carry more than 25 million kids each year. Clean School Bus  is a national program to help communities reduce emissions from older diesel school buses. One simple (and economical) solution: a policy to reduce bus idling while waiting for students at the end of the school day.
Ultrafine particles from vehicles, known as UFPs, can have significant effects on health. A Spring 2014 workshop , cosponsored by NIEHS and the Energy Future Coalition, highlighted some of the research on the topic supported by NIEHS and other institutions.

Written by Peter Lurye

Cruisin' on down Main Street
You're relaxed and feelin' good
Next thing that you know you're seein'
Octopus in the neighborhood!

Surfin' on a sound wave
Swingin' through the stars
Take a left at your intestine
Take your second right past Mars.

On THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS
Navigate a nostril
Climb on THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS
Spank a plankton, too
On our Magic School Bus
Raft a river of lava
On THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS
Such a fine thing to do!

So strap your bones right to the seat
Come on in and don't be shy --
Just to make your day complete
You might get baked into a pie

On THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS...
Step inside -- it's a wilder ride!
Come on -- ride on THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS!
