Taba Naba is a song from It's a Wiggly Wiggly World!. The title is a Meriam Mir phrase which loosely translates to "let's go down to the reef and have a good time." While initially performed with Christine Anu, later performances by The Original Wiggles featured Greg performing lead. Upon Sam's entry to the group, the song was retired until The New Wiggles' Ready, Steady, Wiggle! tour, with each Wiggle taking a turn at singing lead. It has since resurged in performance, being featured in an episode of Ready, Steady, Wiggle! (TV Series 1), and the 2016 release Wiggle Town!, which once again features Christine Anu. Most recently it was released on Youtube as "Taba Naba Style!" on September 2, 2018. It is still the same song despite the name change.
