Toot Toot Tootsie (Goo' Bye!)    (1922)

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, Goo' Bye!
Toot, toot, Tootsie, don't cry
The 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
Tut, tut, Tootsie don't cry
Toot, toot, Tootsie, Goo' Bye!"

When somebody says goodbye to me
I'm sad as I' can be
Not so with this loving Romeo
He seemed to take a lot of pleasure saying bye-bye to his treasure:

"Toot, toot, Tootsie, Goo' Bye!
Toot, toot, Tootsie, don't cry
The 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
Tut, tut, Tootsie don't cry
toot, toot, Tootsie, Goo' Bye!"
