Lyrics

We'll sing a song for Gordon.
He's big, he's fast, he's proud.
His paint is blue, so strong and true
And his whistle's really loud!
The fastest train on Sodor.
You can't forget his name.
So when we've sung for Gordon, well
Let's sing it once again.
Through wind and rain he thunders on.
On him we can rely.
Reliable and useful too
And that's the reason why.
We'll sing a song for Gordon.
He's big, he's fast, he's proud.
His paint is blue, so strong and true
And his whistle's really loud!
The fastest train on Sodor.
You can't forget his name.
So when we've sung for Gordon, well
Let's sing it once again.
The journeys never tire him out.
He'll work all day and night.
And everyone admires him
His boiler gleaming bright.
We'll sing a song for Gordon.
He's big, he's fast, he's proud.
His paint is blue, so strong and true
And his whistle's really loud!
The fastest train on Sodor.
You can't forget his name.
So when we've sung for Gordon, well
Let's sing it once again.
We'll sing a song for Gordon.
He's big, he's fast, he's proud.
His paint is blue, so strong and true
And his whistle's really loud!
The fastest train on Sodor.
You can't forget his name.
So when we've sung for Gordon, well
Let's sing it once again.
