LITTLE TOOT

Little Toot was just a tug
Just a happy harbor tug
And he came from a line of tugboats fine and brave
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-chug, heave-ho, my lad
I'm a big toot just like my dad
Pull big boats with the old heave-ho
And away we go

He made the ocean liners wait
While he made a figure eight
With the greatest of ease
He'd 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 to sea

Chug-a-chug-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

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

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 weaves 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 "S.O.S."
He raced to the rescue of the ship nearby

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 cheerin' 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
