Updated Version of “Wheels On the Bus” for Karen Klein

By now you have probably seen the devastating video of the bus ride that went out of control when some children cruelly taunted their monitor, Karen Klein.  The whole thing was captured on video that you may check out here.

In honor of that bus ride, I have composed some new lyrics to the classic children’s tune “The Wheels on the Bus.” (If you don’t know the song in the first place, consider yourself lucky . . . so lucky that you can probably eat a whole pint of chocolate ice cream without any physical, emotional, or spiritual repercussions, so go ahead and get on that while the rest of us concentrate on the new lyrics.)

Fierce Monitor On Board

Monitor-Hero On Board

Updated Version: “The Wheels on the Bus” by Outlaw Mama

The thugs on the bus taunt “I hate you, you are poor, you are fat”/

The thugs on the bus taunt “I hate you,” all through the town/

The monitor on the bus maintains her cool, maintains her cool, maintains her cool/

The monitor on the bus maintains her cool, all through the town/

The video of the bus goes around the world, around the world, around the world/

The video of the bus goes around the world in about a day/

The people of the world say, “Oh hell no, oh hell no, oh hell no”/

The people of the world say, “Oh hell no,”and raise a bunch of funds/

The money that was raised goes straight to Klein, straight to Klein, straight to Klein/

The money that was raised goes straight to Klein, and soon she’ll buy the town.

  1. I felt awful after watching that video, but I am glad that Karen Klein is getting somewhat of a happy ending. I think she deserves it and I’m glad that she is donating some of that money to charity and good causes. I wrote an article yesterday about her story and the power of the Internet and social media. Here’s the link if you’d like to check it out:
