Have you included the jquery-ui.css and jquery-ui.js file?
Try to create a new html file and type this, and see the result :

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>jQuery UI Tooltip - Default functionality</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="//code.jquery.com/ui/1.11.4/themes/smoothness/jquery-ui.css">
    <script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.10.2.js"></script>
    <script src="//code.jquery.com/ui/1.11.4/jquery-ui.js"></script>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/resources/demos/style.css">
    $(function() {
      $( document ).tooltip();
    label {
      display: inline-block;
      width: 5em;
    <p><a href="#" title="That&apos;s what this widget is">Tooltips</a> can be attached to any element. When you hover
    the element with your mouse, the title attribute is displayed in a little box next to the element, just like a native tooltip.</p>
    <p>But as it's not a native tooltip, it can be styled. Any themes built with
    <a href="http://jqueryui.com/themeroller/" title="ThemeRoller: jQuery UI&apos;s theme builder application">ThemeRoller</a>
    will also style tooltips accordingly.</p>
    <p>Tooltips are also useful for form elements, to show some additional information in the context of each field.</p>
    <p><label for="age">Your age:</label><input id="age" title="We ask for your age only for statistical purposes."></p>
    <p>Hover the field to see the tooltip.</p>
