"Big Red Car" is the first Big Red Car song, from the video and album of the same name, about The Wiggles going for a ride in it around town.

Lyrics

CHORUS
Jump in the car
And buckle up
And we can ride the whole day long
Jump in the car
Put on my seat belt
And we can ride the whole day long

Ride into town
Walk down the street
Get back in the car
And buckle up into my seat
Yes, that's the way we do it
Riding in our Big Red Car

CHORUS

On holidays
We go down to the beach
I get back in the car
And buckle up into my seat
Yes, that's the way we do it
Riding in our Big Red Car

Our Big Red Car (x11)
Our Big Red Car, Car, Car, Car, Car, Car, Car, Car, Car, Car, Car, Car, Car, Car, Car, Car, Car, Car

Our Big Red Car (continuously)

Trivia

  • John Field's name never was mentioned in the original song credits for this song. It's possible he only wrote the lyrics to 'I'll Come Running Back' while Jeff Fatt wrote the music. In any case, while there are some similarities between the songs, they are not exactly the same musically. Interestingly, in a YouTube interview, Murray said that this song was written by Greg Page. Other sites credit Anthony Field with coming up with the idea for a vehicle, but not necessarily the song.
  • The last shot in the 1995 music video where The Wiggles are in the Big Red Car running is sped up. Also, it was filmed outside.
  • The song was written in 1995.
  • The 1995 version of the music video was filmed in chroma key, as the partial blue screen is seen.
  • This song gives thanks to Terry Murray for the guitar work.
  • An instrumental track of the song is played over the opening and closing credits of Here Comes the Big Red Car.
  • A Behind the Scenes image of the 1995 version shows Jacqueline Fallon as Wags the Dog.
  • The Wiggly Circus version which has the TV Series 2 video has a different Rainbow Song Title and audio from the 1995 version.
  • The song is played on the Big Red Car Kiddie Ride.

Goofs

  • Background Goof #1: in the 1999 version (TV Series 2), you'll notice that they pass the same backgrounds about six times, most likely an error with the 3D animation program, or trying to save costs.
