There's a Job for Everyone, also known as Jobs-a-Plenty, is a song from The Great Discovery.


(Chorus:) Jobs a-plenty, five, ten, twenty – jobs for everyone.

Jobs galore, and still there's more, more jobs that must be done!

Train it, crane it – you name it – then we all can say:

The town that time forgot will shine like new on Sodor Day!

There's jobs for main line engines

And narrow gauge as well.

Jobs for workmen in the woods

With trees to clear and fell.

And guess who's trying hardest

To do more than the rest?

It's Thomas! But the others know

They all will do their best.


Emily and Gordon

Take fallen trees and rocks.

James and Edward bringing stone,

While Henry's at the Docks.

And Toby drops off workmen

To work with Jack and Ned

When Percy drops supplies.

No time to rest at Tidmouth Sheds.

(Chorus x2)

The town that time forgot will shine like new on Sodor Day!
