Never, Never, Never Give Up, also referred to as Never, Never Give Up is the last song from the sixth series. A second version was later made using CGI footage as part of Thomas' YouTube World Tour on 22 April 2015.

An instrumental lullaby version was created for the digital album, Lullabies.

Lyrics

If you climb the highest mountain,
Cross the river deep,
Maybe you'll find it's never as easy
As it first appears
(As it first appears)
Just remember not to worry,
Or get down at heart
Never lose faith in positive thinking
You'll be amazed when you achieve
All the things you start,
(All the things you start.) So,
Never, never, never give up, even though the going's tough
Don't stop trying, when you're tiring, and you're out of puff
(No!) never, never, never give up, even though you're feeling rough
If at first you don't succeed, never, never, never give up
If at first you don't succeed, then try and try again
Nothing in life is ever as easy
But you get there in the end
(Get there in the end)
So blow your cares and woes behind you
Start a brand new day
Nothing can stop you reaching your goal
If you're determined, you can do it
You will find a way
(You will find a way.)
So,
Never, never, never give up, even though the going's tough
Don't stop trying, when you're tiring, and you're out of puff
Never, never, never give up, even though you're feeling rough
If at first you don't succeed, never, never, never give up
Some things seem impossible, answers hard to find
No matter how improbable, you won't know until you try
You can do whatever you choose it just takes a little luck
So remember: never, never, never give up
Never, never, never give up even though the going's tough
Don't stop trying, when you're tiring, and you're out of puff
(No!) never, never, never give up even though you're feeling rough
If at first you don't succeed, never, never, never give up
Never, never, never give up, even though the going's tough
Don't stop trying, when you're tiring, and you're out of puff
(No!) never, never, never give up, even though you're feeling rough
If at first you don't succeed, never, never, never give up
Never, never, never give up
Never, never, never give up!
