Lyrics

Season 3 Version

It's Thomas the Tank Engine.
Hip, hip, hip, hip, hooray!
Chugga-chugga, chugg, chugg
Chuff, chuff, chuff.
He rides along the way.
And when you hear that whistle,
It can only be one train.
Our favourite little engine,
Thomas is his name!
Thomas the Tank Engine rolling along, [whistle]
All of his friends will be coming along.
Thomas, we love you.
He's a really useful engine
With his heart that's big and strong.
He chugga-chugga, chuff-chuffs working hard
Helping everyone.
Thomas, he has lots of friends
And you can be one too.
Just clap, clap, clap and sing-along
Thomas, we love you.
Thomas the Tank Engine rolling along, [whistle]
All of his friends will be coming along.
Thomas, we love you.
There's Gordon, and Henry,
Edward, James, and Toby,
Annie and Clarabel,
And don't forget Percy!
Terence and Bertie,
Diesel, Duck, and Daisy.
Lots more friends for you.
He's always up to mischief,
That cheeky little train.
He chugga-chugga-chuff-chuffs everywhere,
He's always playing games.
The Fat Controller scolds him,
But loves him just the same.
Our favourite little engine,
Thomas is his name!
Thomas the Tank Engine rolling along, [whistle]
All of his friends will be coming along.
Thomas we love you.
Thomas the Tank Engine rolling along, [whistle]
All of his friends will be coming along.
Thomas we love you,
Thomas we love you,
Thomas,
We love you!

Season 4 Version

He's a really useful engine
With his heart that's big and strong.
He chugga-chugga, chuff-chuffs working hard
Helping everyone.
Thomas, he has lots of friends
And you can be one too.
Just clap, clap, clap and sing-along
Thomas, we love you.
Thomas the Tank Engine rolling along, [whistle]
All of his friends will be coming along.
Thomas, we love you.
There's Gordon, and Henry,
Edward, James, and Toby,
Annie and Clarabel,
And don't forget Percy!
Terence and Bertie,
Diesel, Duck, and Daisy.
Lots more friends for you.
He's always up to mischief,
That cheeky little train.
He chugga-chugga-chuff-chuffs everywhere,
He's always playing games.
The Fat Controller scolds him,
But loves him just the same.
Our favourite little engine,
Thomas is his name!
Thomas the Tank Engine rolling along, [whistle]
All of his friends will be coming along.
Thomas we love you.
Thomas the Tank Engine rolling along, [whistle]
All of his friends will be coming along.
Thomas we love you,
Thomas we love you,
Thomas,
We love you!
