Lyrics

(Bold and italics indicate the main opening)
James! Percy! Nia! and Gordon!
Rebecca! and Emily! and Thomas Number One!
Let's go, go, go
On a big world adventure,
Let's go, go, go explore,
With Thomas and his friends!
Let's go, go, go
And meet new friendly faces,
The world's just a train ride away!
Big world, big, big adventures!
Thomas & Friends: Big World! Big Adventures!
Let's discover the world
But where should we begin?
There are so many places
Let's give the globe a spin
You love the hometown that you know
But you want to see some more
It's time to go, go, go
Get ready to explore!
Let's go, go, go
On a big world adventure,
Let's go, go, go explore,
With Thomas and his friends!
Let's go, go, go
And meet new friendly faces,
The world's just a train ride away!
Big world, big, big adventures!
Thomas & Friends: Big World! Big Adventures!
You can chart a new course
It's time to find your way
Just pick a direction
And let the music play!
Talk to people you meet
Discover things you never knew
Amazing sights everywhere you go
Waiting there for you!
Let's go, go, go
On a big world adventure,
Let's go, go, go explore,
With Thomas and his friends!
Let's go, go, go
And meet new friendly faces,
The world's just a train ride away!
Big world, big, big adventures!
Thomas & Friends: Big World! Big Adventures!
'Cos there may be
Twists and turns on the tracks
Keep moving forward
No looking back
Discovering
Each day will bring
Big adventures for you!!
Let's go, go, go
On a big world adventure,
Let's go, go, go explore,
With Thomas and his friends!
Let's go, go, go
And meet new friendly faces,
The world's just a train ride away!
Big world, big, big adventures!
Thomas & Friends: Big World! Big :Adventures!

Trivia

  • The theme tune has the same melody as Set Friendship in Motion, albeit as a different song type with altered lyrics.
  • The logo for Big World! Big Adventures! in the prototype version had bigger letters highlighted in blue, using a similar font to the one seen on the box art for the special. but the final version used mismatched sized letters that are all yellow. The prototype logo also faded on the screen, while the final on dropped in letter by letter.
  • A version of this song featuring the diesel engines was featured in the twenty-third series episode, Diesel Do Right, sung by Kerry Shale. In a sense of irony for this version, Shale originally auditioned for Thomas in Hero of the Rails.
  • In the Japanese version, the logo of Thomas & Friends: Big World! Big Adventures! is replaced with stock footage from Trusty Trunky.
  • The South African Version of the theme tune, performed by Bobby van Jaarsveld, is at a lower pitch and key.

Goofs

  • In the closeup of Nia, Thomas is seen in the berth next to her, but in the shot of Thomas at the sheds, James is seen as the engine on Thomas' right (viewer's left) side.
