Salty is a song from the seventh series dedicated to Salty. The tune is based on his theme.

Lyrics

There's a dockside Diesel we know well
Who can spin a yarn
Who can tell a tale
He loves the sea and the ships that sail 
Salty is his name.
He works so hard, he's very very proud,
His friends all love him being around,
When the sun goes down they'll gather round,
For a tale or a song of the sea.
On with the sailor's song,
Follow on, Salty's song,
Follow the leader home,
Follow the leader home.
Salty, tell us another one,
Salty, spin us another one,
Salty, one more story will do,
Salty, oh Salty,
We'll always follow you.
Everyone knows the troublesome trucks,
Push their luck,
Get the engines stuck.
But someone knows just what to do,
Salty is his name.
When he rolls along, he hums his song,
A pretty little song,
Let me tag along.
And his rhythm makes them follow on,
Homeward bound we go.
On with the sailor's song,
Follow on, Salty's song,
Follow the leader home
Follow the leader home.
Salty, sing us another one,
Salty, spin us another one,
Salty, one more story will do,
Salty, oh Salty,
We'll always follow you,
Salty, tell us another one,
Salty, spin us another one,
Salty, tell us another one do,
Salty, oh Salty,
We'll always follow you,
We'll always follow you,
We'll always follow you.

Trivia
