Lyrics

Oh yes, it's great to be an engine and go steaming along
Puff, Puff, Puffing along, Peep, Peep, Peeping along
All the people waving as you speed along
Puff, Puff, Puffing along all day
We're all so proud to be famous engines
And travel through the countryside
We're always brave when there hills to climb
No mountain is too high!
Oh yes it's great to be an engine as you're steaming along
Puff, Puff, Puffing along, Peep, Peep, Peeping along
Fly along the rails as your wheels go round
Whiz whiz whizzing around all day
It doesn't matter come rain or shine
There always things for us to do
And in the cold-cold wintertime
We're ready!
When you light the fire and stoke the boiler and we'll be there for you!
Oh yes it's great to be an engine as you're steaming along
Puff, Puff, Puffing along, Peep Peep, Peeping along
Feel the wind around you as you push along
Puff, Puff puffing along all day
Just think - how wonderful it would be
To live on the magical Island of Sodor, helping Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends
All day long it would be like a dream come true
If only I could be an engine too...
Oh yes it's great to be an engine as you're steaming along
Puff, Puff, Puffing along, Peep, Peep, peeping along
Fly along the rails as your wheels go round
Whiz, Whiz, Whizzing around all day
Oh yes it's great to be an engine and go steaming along
Puff, Puff, Puffing along, Peep, Peep, Peeping along
All the people waving as you speed along
Puff, Puff, PPuffing along...
Peep, Peep, Peeping and Puff, Puff, Puffing and steam around all day!
