Little Toot is a song from the Melody Time segment of the same name. The song is about Little Toot, a small tugboat who is different from all the other tugboats in the harbor and must learn how to be responsible and serious like his father.

Lyrics

Little Toot was just a tug
Just a happy harbor tug
And he came from a line of tugboats fine and gray
But it seems that Little Toot
Simply didn't give a hoot
Though he tried to be good, he never could behave

Chug-a-chug-a-chug
Heave ho, my lad
I'm a Big Toot, just like my dad
Pull big boats with the ol' heave ho
And away we go

Chug-a-chug-chug-chug
Chug-a-chug-chug-chug
Chug-a-chug-chug-chug
Chug-a-chug-chug-chug
Whee!

He made the ocean liners wait
While he made a figure eight
With the greatest is ease, he cut through the seas and slide
But he went too far one day
When he slid in Big Toot's way
And it wasn't a joke for it nearly broke Big Toot's pride

Won't you ever grow up, Little Toot?
Won't you ever grow up, Little Toot?

When there's work to be done
All you think of is fun
Won't you ever grow up, Little Toot?

Oh, Little Toot had quite a scare
He decided then and there
That he'd try to be good as good as he could be

So when his dad came puffin' slow
With a mighty ship in tow
Little Toot went to help him take it out in sea

Chug-a-chug-a-chug
Heave ho, my lad
I'm a Big Toot, just like my dad
Push big boats with the ol' heave ho
And away we go

Chug-a-chug-chug-chug
Chug-a-chug-chug-chug
Chug-a-chug-chug-chug
Chug-a-chug-chug-chug
Whoo!

Won't you ever grow up, Little Toot?
Won't you ever grow up, Little Toot?

When you get into trouble
You get into it double
Won't you ever grow up, Little Toot?

What a shame
What a shame
You've disgraced your father's name
Won't you ever grow up, Little Toot?

Bad boy (Bad boy)
Shame (Shame)
Too bad (Too bad)

He was drifting all around
When a storm came crashing down
In the billowing sea
He tossed and tossed and tossed

And his heart was filled with fear
For he knew the rocks were near
With the waves in pursuit, Little Toot knew all was lost

Then he saw a rocket's flare
Come a-bursting in the air
And he suddenly knew that he must do or die

For a ship was in distress
And as he puffed an SOS
He raced to the rescue of the ship nearby

Try, try, try
Do or die, do or die
Do or die, do or die

(fade to soft melody)

Well, it seems you've grown up, Little Toot
Toot, toot

You're a brave, you're a brave
Brave Little Toot
Can't you hear that cheering crowd?
You have made your daddy proud
You are now a Big Toot, Little Toot

Yes, you're now a Great Big Toot, Little Toot!
