The Choo-Choo Song

Song Video


Once there was a choo-choo, but he couldn't choo-choo so the story goes.
He kept saying achoo instead of saying choo-choo, 'cause he had a cold in his nose.

All the little children laughed at him and teased him.
Sticks and stones they threw.
'Cause he kept saying achoo instead of saying choo-choo like the other choo-choo trains do.

The children were playing on the tracks one day, the little train was headed their way.
We knew he couldn't stop, and he couldn't turn back, so he went "ACHOO" and blew them off the track.
Now they wait for hours, showering him with flowers when he's coming through.
He found fame and glory, so ends the story of the little train that went achoo.

Information About The Choo-Choo Song

Songs about trains have been popular with children for a very long time. Other famous children's songs include the folk song "I've Been Workin' On The Railroad" and "I'm A Choo Choo Train" by Sam Jones.

This song helps children learn to be nice to everyone, even if they seem to be different. The main character in this song makes a funny noise, so the children tease him, but he ends up saving them!

"Choo-Choo Song, The" is also known as the "The Train With A Cold In Its Nose,' a description of the main character of the song. The "Achoo" noise sounds a lot like the "choo choo" sound that steam trains make when they push steam out of their exhaust pipes, the big round part on the top of the train.

My mama use to sing this to me when I was little though the ending went "he won his fame and glory so ends the story of the little choo-choo that went achoo. ACHOO!" I thought my mom was the only one who knew that song!
