Lyrics

1998 Version

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,

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

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, Jeff and Murray: And fruit salad too!

(Chorus)

Other Wiggles: Greg is doing the driving,

Singing

Greg: Scooby do ah!

Other Wiggles: Greg is doing the driving,

Of the Big Red Car!

(Chorus 2x)

Sam Version

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

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

Playing his guitar

Yeah, Murray's in the back seat,

Of the Big Red Car!

(Chorus, Jeff falls asleep after chorus)

Sam: Jeff is fast asleep, Oh no!

He's having a little rest

We better wake him up so let's all

Call out "Wake up Jeff!"

(Jeff Wiggle Wakes Up)

(Chorus)

Sam: Anthony is eating,

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

He's eating apples and oranges,

Sam, Jeff and Murray: And fruit salad too!

(Chorus)

Other Wiggles: Sam is doing the driving,

Singing

Sam: Scooby do ah!

Other Wiggles: Sam is doing the driving,

Of the Big Red Car!

(Chorus 2x)

2013 Version

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

Emma: Simon's in the back seat,

Singing

Simon: la la la. laaaaaaaaa

Emma: Simon's in the back seat,

Of the Big Red Car!

(Chorus, Lachy falls asleep after chorus)

Simon: Lachy is fast asleep,

He's sleeping through this song

We better wake him up so let's all

Wake up Lachlan (Awake Wiggles shout "Wake up Lachy!")

(Lachy Wakes Up)

(Chorus)

Lachy: Anthony is eating,

He's got so much food,

He's eating apples and oranges,

Emma, Lachy and Simon: And fruit salad too!

And though the road is rocky

We'd better wake him up

So let's all call out, "Wake Up, Lachy"

Simon & Emma: WAKE UP LACHY!

Lachy: Anthony is eating

He's eating so much food

He's eating apples and oranges

'Emma, Lachy & Simon: And fruit salad too

'Simon & Lachy: Emma is doing' the driving

Singing

Emma: Scooby doo-wah

Simon & Lachy: Emma is doing' the driving

All: Of the big red car

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.
  • The 2005 karaoke version lacks the lead vocals.
  • 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.
