Little Engines is a song from the sixth season.


First verse:

Main Line Engines always boast how big they are,
Superior by far.
But Little Engines toil away from dawn to dusk,
Without a fuss or care.
Just because we're small doesn't mean we don't stand tall,
And we pull our weight like all the others do.
You'll be surprised, in spite of their size,
Just what little engines can do!


Little Engines, Little Engines,
Little Engines can do the biggest things.
Little Engines, Little Engines,
Little Engines can do most anything.
They'll carry on until the work is over,
They'll carry on 'til the end,
They're the smallest in the station, don't underestimate them,
They're not such little engines after all.

Second verse:

Bigger engines say little engines play all day,
And they're not much use to anyone at all.
But we're strong enough to deal with those trucks,
That's what little engines are for!


Third verse:

Thomas, Percy, Bill & Ben,
You can rely on them,
These little engines are the best!
Stepney, Duck and Oliver,
They'll give the trucks what for,
You'll be so impressed.


They're our favourite little engines,
They're mighty little engines!
They're not such little engines after all!
They're not such...little engines after all!
