The song was written by Pete Townsend and was originally released by The Who in 1968 on the bands Magic Bus: The Who on Tour compilation album.

The track is usually performed as a duet, where the Rider is riding on the bus every day to see his girl.

Lyrics[]

Every day I get in the queue (Too much, the Magic Bus)

To get on the bus that takes me to you (Too much, the Magic Bus)

I'm so nervous, I just sit and smile (Too much, the Magic Bus)

Your house is only another mile (Too much, the Magic Bus)

Thank you, driver, for getting me here (Too much, the Magic Bus)

You'll be an inspector, have no fear (Too much, the Magic Bus)

I don't want to cause no fuss (Too much, the Magic Bus)

But can I buy your Magic Bus? (Too much, the Magic Bus)

Nooooooooo!



I don't care how much I pay (Too much, the Magic Bus)

I wanna drive my bus to my baby each day (Too much, the Magic Bus)

*[Magic Bus, Magic Bus, Magic Bus

Magic Bus, Magic Bus, Magic Bus

Give me a hundred (Magic Bus)

I won't take under (Magic Bus)

Goes like thunder (Magic Bus)

It's a four-stage wonder (Magic Bus)



Magic Bus, Magic Bus, Magic Bus, Magic Bus

I want it, I want it, I want it...(You can't have it!)

Think how much you'll save...(You can't have it!)]

I want it, I want it, I want it, I want it ... (You can't have it!)



Thruppence and sixpence every day

Just to drive to my baby

Thruppence and sixpence each day

'Cause I drive my baby every way



Magic Bus, Magic Bus, Magic Bus, Magic Bus, Magic Bus...

I want the Magic Bus, I want the Magic Bus, I want the Magic Bus...



I said, now I've got my Magic Bus (Too much, the Magic Bus) 

I said, now I've got my Magic Bus (Too much, the Magic Bus)

I drive my baby every way (Too much, the Magic Bus)

Each time I go a different way (Too much, the Magic Bus)

I want it, i want it, I want it, I want it ...
