Lyrics

Classic Series

Oh yes, it's great
To be an engine
And go steaming along,
Puff puff puffing along,
Peep peep peeping along.
All the people waving
As you speed along.
Puff puff puffing along
All day.
We're all so proud to be
Famous engines
And travel through the countryside.
We're always brave when
There are hills to climb.
No mountain is too high!
Oh yes it's great
To be an engine
As you're steaming along.
Puff puff puffing along,
Peep peep peeping along.
Fly along the rails as
Your wheels go round
Whiz whiz whizzing around
All day.
It doesn't matter
Come rain or shine.
There are always things
For us to do.
And in the cold cold
Wintertime,
We're ready.
When you light the fire
And stoke the boiler
And we'll be there for you!
Oh yes it's great
To be an engine
As you're steaming along.
Puff puff puffing along,
Peep peep peeping along.
Feel the wind around you
As you push along.
Puff puff puffing along
All day.
Just think - how wonderful it would be.
To live on the magical Island of Sodor,
Helping Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends
All day long,
It would be like a dream come true.
If only I could be an engine too...
Oh yes it's great
To be an engine
As you're steaming along.
Puff puff puffing along,
Peep peep peeping along.
Fly along the rails as your
Wheels go round.
Whiz whiz whizzing around
All day.
Oh yes it's great
To be an engine
And go steaming along.
Puff puff puffing along,
Peep peep peeping along.
All the people waving
As you speed along.
Puff puff puffing along,
Peep peep peeping and
Puff puff puffing and
Steam around all day!
