The Lyrics

The song's taken from Mei's POV, for those who have watched the movie.
I met him in the woods, in the camphor trees,
Where the flowers bloom and the sky is clear like Kyoto,
Just like in Kyoto.

I climbed on his belly when he was asleep,
I thought up a name and in a soft sweet voice,
I said Totoro!
My neighbor Totoro!
To-To-To-Totoro!

Well, I've been around but I ain't never seen
A thing that hops round the forest like a Mexican bean.
That's Totoro!
To-To-To-Totoro!

Well, I'm not dumb but I can't understand
How he can fly across the sky without waving his hands.
Oh, Totoro!
My neighbor Totoro!
To-To-To-Totoro!

Well, I left town just a week before,
And I've never lived in the country before.
And all my friends were sceptical of course,
Of this Forest King that could scream like a horse!

Well, I'm not the kind that would argue with them,
So it looks like I'm going meet that fur ball again!
Oh, Totoro!
I love you, Totoro!
To-To-To-Totoro!

Let's go!
My neighbor Totoro!
To-To-To-Totoro!

So I ran from home!
But soon I got lost!
I saw the Cat Bus!
And I shouted: "Hooray!"
Well I won't forget this happy day!

I said: "Big sister, how did you ever find me?"
She mentioned Totoro and I just had to clamor with glee!
Oh, Totoro!
Thank you, dear Totoro!

I know Setsuki must be really annoyed,
But we're going to see our mother, so she's tingled with joy!
Oh, Totoro!
Thank you, dear Totoro!

Well, that's the last time I saw my friend.
So I guess I won't be seeing him again.
But I know Totoro will return someday,
I'll be waiting for him 'till I'm shrivelled and gray!

The Ghibli contract I had to sign,
Says I'll be making chibi dolls 'till the end of time
Of Totoro!
My neighbor Totoro!
To-To-To-Totoro!

Let's go!
My neighbor Totoro!
To-To-To-Totoro!

Let's go!
My neighbor Totoro!
To-To-To-Totoro!

Let's go!
My neighbor Totoro!
To-To-To-Totoro!

Let's go!
My neighbor Totoro!
To-To-To-Totoro!

Let's go!
My neighbor Totoro!
To-To-To-Totoro!

Let's go!
My neighbor Totoro!
To-To-To-Totoro!
'My Neighbor Totoro' belongs to Studio Ghibli and was directed by Hayao Miyazaki. Highly recommended to watch for the family!

555, I not very familiar with Totoro, I've read about it, haven't actually seen it(this coming from an anime fanboy), I like anime parodies, so it didn't cost you any points in funny.
