Lyrics

Patience is a virtue
So it never hurts to
Take a little time to see.
Sir Topham Hatt has taught you
And you know you ought to
Be as patient as can be
Happy waiting patiently.
Don't get too excited.
Just try staying calm.
Thinking for a minute
Saves you so much harm.
Everything around you
Is rushing here and there.
Life can be so simple
If you make time to spare.
Patience is a virtue
So it never hurts to
Take a little time to see.
Sir Topham Hatt has taught you
And you know you ought to
Be as patient as can be
Happy waiting patiently.
If you're in a hurry
Take the time to think.
What's the point of rushing
If you're on the brink.
Go a little slower.
Someone else can lead.
Take the time to rest.
That's what engines need.
Patience is a virtue
So it never hurts to
Take a little time to see.
Sir Topham Hatt has taught you
And you know you ought to
Be as patient as can be
Happy waiting patiently.
Patience is a virtue
So it never hurts to
Take a little time to see.
Sir Topham Hatt has taught you
And you know you ought to
Be as patient as can be
Happy waiting patiently.
