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

Toot, Toot, Tootsie! (Goo' Bye!)  (1922) 
by Gus Kahn, Ernie Erdman and Dan Russo


Sheet music cover
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:
