Toot Toot Tootsie! (Goodbye) by Al Jolson

Album: The Jazz SingerReleased: 1923
  • This song is about a guy who watches his girl leave on a train and promises to write. It is often performed with train whistles.
  • Jolson sang this in The Jazz Singer, which is the first feature-length movie with talking sequences. The song was also recorded by Gus Kahn, Ted Fio Rito, Ernie Erdman and Dan Russo (all in 1922) and by Eddie Cantor, who also popularized the song. Cantor (real name Israel Iskowitz), was called "Banjo Eyes." >>

Concerning the above mentioned 'Jazz Singer'; on October 6th 1927, the movie premiered at the Warners' Theater in New York City; it was first feature-length motion picture with synchronized dialogue sequences, but it was not a complete 'talkie', there were just 291 spoken words in the film...
"Toot Toot Tootsie" was also covered by Tony Bennett, Brenda Lee, and Wayne Newton.

I always remember this song from the "Fudge" books where Peter and Fudge's little sister's nickname is Tootsie.Dana - Greenwood, Sc
An episode of "The Andy Griffith Show" ("Aunt Bee's Medicine Man") features this song sung by a tipsy Aunt Bee after drinking some "elixir" (moonshine) sold to her by a traveling salesman. She is hilarious as she plays the piano and sings this with young Opie (Ron Howard). She even has a drunken spin around on the piano stool. Hands-down my favorite rendition of this song EVER.Margaret - Buellton, Ca
