Never, Never, Never Give Up is a song from the sixth season dedicated to Thomas, Edward, Henry, Gordon, James, Percy, Toby, Duck, Donald and Douglas. It is also referred to as Never, Never Give Up. The song was composed by Mike O'Donnell and Junior Campbell.
If you climb the highest mountain,
Cross the river deep,
Maybe you'll find it's never as easy
As it first appears, as it first appears
Just remember not to worry,
Or get down at heart
Never lose faith in positive thinking
You'll be amazed when you achieve
All the things you start,
all the things you start. So,
Never, never, never give up even though the going's tough
Don't stop trying, when you're tiring, and you're out of puff
No, never, never, never give up even though you're feeling rough
If at first you don't succeed, never, never, never give up
If at first you don't succeed, Then try and try again
Nothing in life is ever as easy
But you get there in the end, get there in the end
So blow your cares and woes behind you
Start a brand new day
Nothing can stop you reaching your goal
If you're determined, you can do it
You will find a way, you will find a way. So,
Some things seem impossible, answers hard to find
No matter how improbable, you won't know until you try
You can do whatever you choose it just takes a little luck
So remember never, never, never give up
(Repeat Chorus twice)
Never, never, never give up!
