Felt Song: This Little Train
(Tune: This Old Man)
This little train, painted black
It comes chugging down the track
With a “choo-choo, toot-toot”
Hear the whistle blow
This little train goes chugging home

This little car, painted blue
It has seats for me and you
With a “choo-choo, toot-toot”
Hear the whistle blow
This little train goes chugging home

This little car, painted yellow
Shimmies and shakes like a bowl of jello
With a “choo-choo, toot-toot”
Hear the whistle blow
This little train goes chugging home

This little car, painted green
The fanciest car you’ve ever seen
With a “choo-choo, toot-toot”
Hear the whistle blow
This little train goes chugging home

This caboose, it is red
It will take you home to bed
With a “choo-choo, toot-toot”
Hear the whistle blow
This little train goes chugging home
