Song Lyrics

All: Do the propeller

Do the propeller

Do the propeller around and around

Do the propeller

Do the propeller

Do the propeller around and around

Lachy: We're going up and up and up and up

Simon: We're going down and down and down and down

All: We're going up up up up up up up up up

Emma: And then we stop

All: Oh

Do the propeller

Do the propeller

Do the propeller around and around

Do the propeller

Do the propeller

Do the propeller around and around

We're going up up up up up up up up up

Simon: We're down da-da down down da down down down

All: We're going up up up up up up up up up

Emma: And then we stop, Ahh!

All: Oh..woooo

Do the propeller

Do the propeller

Do the propeller around and around

Do the propeller

Do the propeller

Do the propeller around and around

Statue, Statue, Statue, Propeller!

Trivia

  • When this song was first shown in live theaters, websites such as Wiggle Time TV and the bonus feature of the 2012 video "Celebration" as a sneak preview from June to December 2012, the Wiggles didn't say "Statue, statue, statue, propeller!" at the end. It also used a different music track and the very last shot of the Wiggles on the double-decker bus. It was also shown 5 days before and after "Surfer Jeff" was released on DVD, June 16th 2012. One of the preview versions shows The Wiggles Logo with background music from "Get Ready to Wiggle" at the beginning just before the song starts.
  • The original title of the song was simply "Propeller" as seen in Celebration!; but for Taking Off!, it was changed to, "Do the Propeller!".
  • The demo version contains the drums, bass guitar, organ and sitar.
  • This is so far the only current Wiggles song that involves with aviation, which means aircraft stuff such as planes.
  • An instrumental track of this song is played over the credits of the Hot Potatoes! The Best of the Wiggles 2014 DVD.
