The Shooting Star is Coming Through is a song featured in The Great Race. The song is sung by Gordon, who is portrayed by Keith Wickham in the UK dub and Kerry Shale in the US dub. It is an alternate version of Thomas' Streamlining.
- 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!
- The Shooting Star is coming through!
- Give up, there’s nothing you can do!
- 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,
- 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...!
- 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!
- 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...
