Yesterday I heard a lover sigh
Goodbye, oh me, oh my
Seven times he got aboard his train
And seven times he hurried back
To kiss his love again and tell her

Toot, toot, tootsie, goodbye
Toot, toot, tootsie, don't cry
That choo choo train that takes me
Away from you, no words can
Tell how sad it makes me

Kiss me tootsie and then do it over again

Watch for the mail, I'll never fail
If you don't get a letter
Then you'll know I'm in jail
Toot, toot, tootsie, don't cry
Toot, toot, tootsie, goodbye

Kiss me, tootsie, and then do it over again

Watch for the mail, I'll never fail
If you don't get a letter
Then you'll know I'm in jail
Toot, toot, tootsie, don't cry
Goodbye, tootsie, goodbye
