Lyrics

What makes an engine happy?
What makes an engine sad?
It all depends what's happened
And the type of day you've had.
What makes an engine happy
Won't make an engine sad.
So many things can make your day
A good one or a bad.
Chuffing children to the sea
Will make an engine smile.
Or racing through the countryside
For mile on mile on mile.
Just being really useful
Will make an engine's day.
Or going somewhere different
Making new friends on the way.
What makes an engine happy?
What makes an engine sad?
It all depends what's happened
And the type of day you've had.
What makes an engine happy
Won't make an engine sad.
So many things can make your day
A good one or a bad.
Running out of water, yes
It makes an engine sad.
Breaking down or being late
Makes an engine feel so bad.
Getting stuck up Gordon's Hill
Won't please Sir Topham Hatt.
But don't despair 'cause everyone
Has days that go like that.
What makes an engine happy?
What makes an engine sad?
It all depends what's happened
And the type of day you've had.
What makes an engine happy
Won't make an engine sad.
So many things can make your day
A good one or a bad.
What makes an engine happy?
What makes an engine sad?
It all depends what's happened
And the type of day you've had.
What makes an engine happy
Won't make an engine sad.
So many things can make your day
A good one or a bad.

Trivia

Goofs

  • A question mark is put at the end of "What makes an engine happy" the second time it is sung during each chorus in the official sing-along lyrics. That doesn't make sense, as the next line says "Won't make an engine sad".
