Thanks to Geoff Unwin for the articles

I have fond memories of composing the melody for On the Buses - something along the lines of 'Knees up Mother Brown' on wheels. There were two recordings: the first was just a demo but it finished up being featured as the sound track. My theme tune was then arranged by Max Harris to marry into the various scenes, so the theme tune is heard throughout the film. For the commercial recording, featuring the group Quinceharmon I arranged a fuller sound which featured a string section from the London Symphony Orchestra along with various ex-members of the Ted heath orchestra - Frank Horrox, piano for example. Brian Bennet of the Shadows was my drummer for the session. Fans may be interested to know that On the Buses was retained in many cinemas for two and sometimes three weeks, making more money, at that time, than all the 'Carry On' films together at that time - such was its popularity. The critics thought otherwise. But the British public thought better of it. The film is still hugely popular in Canada, Australia and Scandanavia.

Oh! It's agreat life ON THE BUSES,
There's nothing like it, you'll agree.
Take a ride ON THE BUSES
because there's plenty you can see
Oh! It's agreat life ON THE BUSES,
there is no better place to meet.
So why not look around you,
no need to leave your seat.
Oh! It's agreat life ON THE BUSES,
no matter what the time of day.
You can see the world up-ON THE BUSES,
were on our way.
There's so much feeling ON THE BUSES,
as people fumble for their fare.
it always hapeens in the cruches,
they take there chance while it's there.
It's so exciting ON THE BUSES,
when some one is fumbling next to you.
and when the traffic jams in rushes,
there's little else to do.
There's always gay life ON THE BUSES,
make sure you leave your bird at home.
You'll see so many ON THE BUSES,
you won't be sitting on your own.
It's so romantic ON THE BUSES,
you'll find it thrilling when you ride
and you can get it ON THE BUSES,
upstairs or down inside.
Oh! It's a grat life ON THE BUSES
no matter what the time of day,
You'll see the world ON THE BUSES
were on our way.
