Lyrics

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

Yellow Wiggle: (Red Wiggle)'s in the back seat,

(Murray) Playing his guitar, (Simon) singing la la la la

Yellow Wiggle: (Red Wiggle)'s in the back seat,

Of the Big Red Car!

(Chorus, Purple Wiggle falls asleep after chorus)

Lead Singer: (Purple Wiggle) is fast asleep,

(Jeff) He's having a little rest, (Lachy) He's sleeping through this song

We better wake him up so let's all

(Jeff) Call out "Wake up Jeff!" (Lachy) Wake up Lachlan (Awake Wiggles shout "Wake up Lachy!")

(Purple Wiggle Wakes Up)

(Chorus)

Lead Singer: Anthony is eating,

He's got so much food,

He's eating apples and oranges,

Unforgotten, Professional, or Replacement Wiggles: And fruit salad too!

(Chorus)

Other Wiggles: (Yellow Wiggle) is doing the driving,

Singing ((Yellow Wiggle:) Scooby do ah!)

Other Wiggles: (Yellow Wiggle) is doing the driving,

Of the Big Red Car!

(Chorus 2x)

  • 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.
