A World Around You is a song from the eighth series. A second music video was later made using CGI footage as part of Thomas' YouTube World Tour on 25 February 2015.

Lyrics

Have a look about you.
Take in what you see.
There's a world around you
Wherever you may be.
Favourite names and places
Everywhere you go.
Sodor is our Island
The only home we know.
Out of Henry's Tunnel
Or climbing Gordon's Hill.
Past the castle ruins
Toward the watermill.
We'll whistle past the lighthouse
Gleaming red and white.
We'll leave the sheds at Tidmouth
Then come back home at night.
Take a look about you.
Enjoy the world you see.
Be it town or country.
There's such variety.
Old familiar faces
Everywhere you go.
Sodor is our Island
The only home we know.
Doo be doo be do bah
Doo be doo be do bah
Doo be doo be do bah.
Doo be doo be do bah
Doo be doo be do bah
Doo be doo be do bah.
Have a look about you.
Take in what you see.
There's a world around you
Wherever you may be.
Favourite names and places
Everywhere you go.
Sodor is our Island
The only home we know.
Across the old steel bridge
Or past the church we'll go.
Up beyond the windmill
Or ploughing through the snow.
On towards the castle
And past the sea so blue.
Wherever you are going
Here's what you should do.
Have a look about you.
Take in what you see.
There's a world around you
Wherever you may be.
Favourite names and places
Everywhere you go.
Sodor is our Island
The only home we know.
Doo be doo be do bah
Doo be doo be do bah
Doo be doo be do bah.
Take a look about you.
Enjoy the world you see.
Be it town or country
There's such variety.
Old familiar faces
Everywhere you go.
Sodor is our Island
The only home we know.
Doo be doo be do bah
Doo be doo be do bah
Doo be doo be do bah.
Doo be doo be do bah
Doo be doo be do bah
Doo be doo be do bah.
