Song Lyrics

Do the propeller
Do the propeller
Do the propeller around and around

Do the propeller
Do the propeller
Do the propeller around and around

We're going up and up and up and up
We're going down and down and down and down
We're going up, up, up, up, up, up, up, up, up
And then we stop
Ahhhhhhhh!

Do the propeller
Do the propeller
Do the propeller around and around

Do the propeller
Do the propeller
Do the propeller around and around

We're going up, up, up, up, up, up, up, up, up
We're down da-da down down da down down down
We're going up, up, up, up, up, up, up, up, up
And then we stop
Oh!
Ahhhhhhh, whoo!

Do the propeller
Do the propeller
Do the propeller around and around

Do the propeller
Do the propeller
Do the propeller around and around

Statue
Statue
Statue
Propeller

It also used a different music track and the very last shot of the Wiggles on the double-decker bus. It was also shown 5 days before "Surfer Jeff" was released on DVD, June 16th 2012.
