The Whistle Song is the last song from the seventh season dedicated to the engine's whistles and was the last song of the Classic Series. It was later re-released with a new CGI music video as part of Thomas' YouTube World Tour.

Lyrics

Classic Series

Engines all have whistles, as everybody knows.
And as they leave the station, you'll hear the whistle blow.
Speeding down the hillside, the whistles blown with pride,
Driver checks the signal, and whistles one more time.
Engines, blow your whistles; Toby, ring your bell.
Gordon and Henry, Thomas as well,
Engines, blow your whistles and let's all have some fun!
Engines, blow your whistles; Let's hear the whistle song!
Every whistle's different; No two will sound the same,
It helps to warn off danger if something's in your way.
Whistles are important, as every engine knows,
Clear the line ahead now, when the whistle blows!
Engines, blow your whistles; Toby, ring your bell,
James and Edward, Percy as well.
Engines, blow your whistles and let's all have some fun,
Engines, blow your whistles; Let's hear the whistle song
An engine lost its whistle and could not make a sound.
It really was a problem until one could be found.
'Cause an engine's not an engine if it hasn't got a whistle,
Hear the whistles blow!
Engines, blow your whistles; Toby, ring your bell,
Gordon and Henry, Thomas as well.
Engines, blow your whistles and let's all have some fun,
Engines, blow your whistles; Let's hear the whistle song
One long whistle means coming up fast,
Two in the fog, give two short blasts.
One, two, three, means clear up the line
Let's blow our whistles one more time!
Engines, blow your whistles; Toby, ring your bell,
James and Edward, Percy as well.
Engines blow your whistles, and let's all have some fun,
Engines blow your whistles, Let's hear the whistle song!
