Determination is an eighth season song. It was later remade using CGI footage.

Lyrics

Don't give up, show determination.
Don't give up. You'll be a big sensation.
Keep your wheels a-turning your pistons pumping hard.
Keep your boilers burning, don't idle round the yard.
Right on time, you'll reach your destination.
Now's the time to show determination.
Hard work gets it done
Then there's time to have some fun.
Teamwork - work you share.
That's the way to get you there.
When you have the will,
You can climb the highest hill.
Hard work - that's the way.
Here's the words you have to say...
Don't give up, show determination.
Don't give up. You'll be a big sensation.
Keep your wheels a-turning your pistons pumping hard.
Keep your boilers burning, don't idle round the yard.
Right on time, you'll reach your destination.
Now's the time to show determination.
(Instrumental break)
Don't give up, show determination.
Don't give up. You'll be a big sensation.
Keep your wheels a-turning your pistons pumping hard.
Keep your boilers burning, don't idle round the yard.
Right on time, you'll reach your destination.
Now's the time to show determination.
(Instrumental break)
Don't give up, show determination.
Don't give up. You'll be a big sensation.
Keep your wheels a-turning your pistons pumping hard.
Keep your boilers burning, don't idle round the yard.
Right on time, you'll reach your destination.
Now's the time to show determination.
