Lyrics

Rock and roll, click-clack
Steaming down the track
The fun just never ends
Every day's a good good day
For Thomas and his friends
Steady, steady, steady
Everybody's getting ready
The Steam Team leads the way
It's a very special day
It's getting better and better
Now everybody say hey!
It's gonna be a great day
Rocking and a rolling, they're riding the rails
In the noon day light
Shunting and a hauling freight
They don't wanna be late
They wanna do what's right
Weesh-Weesh, Whoo-Whoo
They know what they have to do
They are a useful crew
It's a very special day
It's getting better and better
Now everybody say hey!
It's gonna be a great day
Weesh, Weesh, Whoo-Whoo
They know what they have to do
They are a useful crew
It's a very special day
It's getting better and better
Now everybody say hey!
It's gonna be a great day
Now it's a very special day
It's getting better and better
Now everybody say hey!
It's gonna be a great day
It's a very special day
It's getting better and better
Now everybody say hey!
It's gonna be a great day
It's gonna be a great day
