Sounds is the first song from the eighth season and the New Series. It was later remade using CGI footage for the thirteenth season and was later renamed The Sound Song.

Lyrics

"All Aboard!" and "Close the doors!"

Whistle blows and the engine roars

Spinning wheels beginning to grip

These are the sounds as we start our trip

Rattling rails and cheerful chuffs

Clattering carriages huffs and puffs

With a "Whiss" on the whistle

And a "Wheesh" on the brakes

These are the sounds that the engines make

Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)

Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)

Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)

These are the sounds that the engines make

Happy hoots as the fields rush by

Shovelling coal how the time does fly

Proudly race full steam ahead

Screeching brakes when the lights go red

A wheesh of steam and clanking joints

Shuddering doors and clattering points

With a 'Whiss' on the whistle

And a 'Wheesh' on the brakes

These are the sounds that the engines make

Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)

Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)

Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)

These are the sounds that the engines make

Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)

Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)

Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)

These are the sounds that the engines make

These are the sounds as we start our trip

Big wheels squeal as we start to grip

Off we go with a chuff, chuff, chuff

Climbing slow with a puff, puff, puff

Happy hoots as the fields rush by

Shovelling coal how the time does fly

Proudly race full steam ahead

Screeching brakes when the lights go red

A wheesh of steam and clanking joints

Shuddering doors and clattering points

With a 'Whiss' on the whistle

And a 'Wheesh' on the brakes

These are the sounds that the engines make

Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)

Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)

Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)

These are the sounds that the engines make

Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)

Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)

Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)
