Lyrics

Whatever job you're doing
Make sure you're doing it right.
Start each day the proper way
All polished, shining bright.
Do your best but still have fun
So when you come home at night
You can say in every way
You tried to do things right.
Don't go racing through the fog.
That's when you must take care.
Help the other engines
As there's always work to share.
Take on coal and water
To see you through the day.
And you'll get used to doing
Everything the proper way.
Whatever job you're doing,
Make sure you're doing it right.
Start each day the proper way
All polished, shining bright.
Do your best but still have fun
So when you come home at night
You can say in every way
You tried to do things right.
Wait 'til everyone's on board
Before you're wheeshing steam
Clear the snow with snowploughs
Follow Harold's shining beam.
Whistle out a warning
When there's trouble up ahead.
How proud you're going to feel
When you go home to Tidmouth Sheds.
Whatever job you're doing,
Make sure you're doing it right.
Start each day the proper way
All polished, shining bright.
Do your best but still have fun
So when you come home at night
You can say in every way
You tried to do things right.
You can say in every way
You tried to do things right.
Don't go racing through the fog.
That's when you must take care.
Help the other engines
As there's always work to share.
Take on coal and water
To see you through the day.
And you'll get used to doing
Everything the proper way.
Whatever job you're doing,
Make sure you're doing it right.
Start each day the proper way
All polished, shining bright.
Do your best but still have fun
So when you come home at night
You can say in every way
You tried to do things right.
You can say in every way
You tried to do things right.
