Song Lyrics

Down by the station

Early in the morning

See the little pufferbillies all in a row

See the Engine Driver

Turn the little handle

Puff, puff! Toot, toot!

Off We Go!


  • The Wiggles rewrote twist the little handle to turn the little handle.
  • The song is usually called "Down by The Station" but The Wiggles rewrote the title themselves, although the original is on the Lachy album.
  • The 1995 version plays in C while the current version since 2014 plays in D.
  • The song was written by Lee Ricks and Slim Gaillard.
  • Gerry Brady is only credited for playing the guitar on the Big Red Car album, but not on the Here Comes the Big Red Car album.
