Lyrics

Once upon a time, not so very long ago
There was a little trouble going on
Diesels made the steamies pretty mad
And none of them could even get along
There they go, heading for the Steamworks
Honking horns, listen to the rolling thunder

Day of the Diesels
'Arry, Bert, Paxton, Diesel and Den
Day of the Diesels
Norman, Dart and Diesel 10

Percy thought he didn't have a friend in the world
How very, very wrong could he be
With a friend like Thomas rolling by his side
He couldn't be in better company
There they go, heading for the Steamworks
Whistles blow, listen to the rolling thunder

Day of the Diesels
'Arry, Bert, Paxton, Diesel and Den
Day of the Diesels
Norman, Dart and Diesel 10
Day of the Diesels
'Arry, Bert, Paxton, Diesel and Den
Day of the Diesels
Norman, Dart and Diesel 10

Thomas and Percy
Gordon and Henry
Fiery Flynn
He roars to the rescue
James and Edward
Toby and Emily
Don't forget Belle
Big, brave and bright blue
Rolling thunder
Rolling thunder

With the Dieselworks all cinders and ashes
There's only one thing to do
Put aside your worries and just pull together
Is the only way to get through

There they go, building it together
Dieselworks rising from the rolling thunder

Day of the Diesels
'Arry, Bert, Paxton, Diesel and Den
Day of the Diesels
Norman, Dart and Diesel 10
Day of the Diesels
'Arry and Bert, Paxton, Diesel and Den
Day of the Diesels
Norman, Dart and Diesel 10
Day of the Diesels

Trivia

  • This song has the same chord progression as Go, Go Thomas.
  • When the song was aired on television, the song excludes the lyrics about the engines working together to rebuild the Dieselworks. It even repeated the chorus twice at the end.
  • As the order of the engines named during the German version of the song was changed, Diesel 10 is shown when "Norman" is sung and mirrorwise.

Goofs

  • In the German version, Thomas is once incorrectly addressed by a German form of his name. In the German dub itself, his name is spoken like it is in English. During the rest of the song, the characters' usual naming is used.
