Lyrics

1998 Version

Greg and Mark: Toot Toot, Chugga Chugga, Big red car,

We'll travel near and we'll travel far

Toot Toot, Chugga Chugga, Big Red Car,

We're gonna ride the whole day long

Greg: Murray's in the back seat,

Playing his guitar

Murray's in the back seat,

Greg and Mark: Of the Big Red Car!

(Chorus, Jeff falls asleep after chorus)

Greg: Jeff is fast asleep,

He's having a little rest

We better wake him up so let's all

Greg and Mark: Call out "Wake up Jeff!"

(Jeff Wiggle Wakes Up)

(Chorus)

Greg: Anthony is eating,

He's got so much food,

He's eating apples and oranges,

Greg and Mark: And fruit salad too!

(Chorus)

Mark: Greg is doing the driving,

Singing

Greg: Scooby doo ah!

Mark: Greg is doing the driving,

Greg and Mark: Of the Big Red Car!

(Chorus 2x)

Sam: Well, Murray's in the back seat,

Playing his guitar

Yeah, Murray's in the back seat,

Wiggles: Of the Big Red Car!

(Chorus, Jeff falls asleep after chorus)

He's having a little rest

We better wake him up so let's all

He's got so much food, Uh-huh!

Trivia

  • According to the "Wiggles songs" category, this is the number one Wiggles Song on Wigglepedia along with Lights, Camera, Action, Wiggles!.
  • In some parts of the original 1998 version, Anthony's skivvy is darker than it usually is so as to not interfere with the bluescreen process. The 1998 version also shows the Big Red Car flying at the end. This is similar to Grease, a 1978 film.
  • This song is sometimes confused with the song Big Red Car as they're both songs about The Big Red Car.
  • The 1998 version aired on television after the Toot Toot video was released
  • The 1999 remake didn't air on television because it did not appear on any of the TV Series 2 episodes.
  • The Karaoke Songs 1 version shows that John Field's name was in the credits, although he didn't write it. The same thing happened on Wiggly Jukebox, but with Craig Abercrombie's name added.
  • An instrumental track is played over the credits of the Hot Potatoes! The Best of The Wiggles DVD.
  • The song is played in the games Build the Big Red Car and The Great Big Red Car Maze.
  • On The Wiggles' YouTube channel, the Nursery Rhymes version was uploaded on April 27th 2017 and the Wiggle Around Australia version was uploaded on November 16th 2017. Then on June 21st 2018, the 2013 version was uploaded.
  • Jeff Fatt is not credited for playing the organ in the 1998 version.
  • Anthony Field's name got removed from Lyrick Studio's Toot Toot! Sampler.
