Lyrics

Thomas: (spoken) You could overheat! Your boiler could blow up!
Gordon: Oh Thomas, will you stop your whining?
There’s no other engine I won’t be outshining
Too late,
I’ve got a date!
Streamlining!
Whoosh!
The Shooting Star is coming through!
Whoosh!
Give up, there’s nothing you can do!
Whoosh!
Cause all you’ll ever see of me
Will be a shining streak of racing blue!
My clouds today all have a silver lining
I’ll see my bossy brother get some undermining
Cause I’m the cream,
The best in steam,
Streamlining!
Oh...
[Speech:]
Announcer: Étienne and Spencer are still holding the lead, but after a late start, the Shooting Star is coming up from behind! He's already overtaken the Flying Scotsman and Axel...
Flying Scotsman: Gordon? Gordon!
Gordon: That's NOT my name!
Flying Scotsman: You have to stop! Listen to me, Gordon! There's something wrong!
Gordon: I can't stop, I WON'T stop!
Announcer: I don't know what's happening, but... it looks like the Shooting Star is having some kind of trouble!
Gordon: Whoosh!
The Shooting Star is coming through...!
Whoosh!
Give up, there’s nothing you can do...!
Announcer: (spoken) I think it's all over!
Gordon: Whoosh!
Cause all you’ll see of me...
Will be-!
Hot! Hot! Hot! Hot!
Owwwwww, oh!!!
[Speech:]
Announcer: It is now, his boiler is burst! He's slowing down! And The Shooting Star is out of the race! What a tragedy!
Gordon: Oh, the indignity...
