« A version of the melody was first copyrighted as « The Pump » in 1944 but was not recorded until October 15, 1952 (Prestige PRLP 7027). By this time, Monk had revised and renamed « Little Rootie Tootie » in tribute to his son, Thelonious, Jr., who was two years old at the time. He earned the nicknmame « Toot » after Little the Tugboat » from a favorite Walt Disney cartoon based on children book of the same name; young Thelonious learned to whistle like « Little Toot » before he learned to talk.  The song has also been associated with the sound of the railroad, a common motif in blues an jazz since the early part of the century. »
