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)

2013 Version

Toot Toot, Chugga Chugga, Big red car,

We'll travel near and we'll travel far

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)

He's got so much food,

He's eating apples and oranges,
