Lyrics

Series 21 version

Thomas: Clap your hands
Stomp your feet
Across the land
To the beat
Sing it along with us
Let's set friendship in motion
Let's set friendship in motion
You can stay on the tracks
And stand still all day
Or you can keep chugging
And get on your way
Talk to people you meet
And learn something that's new
Make friends everywhere you go
They'll be there through and through
Let's go, go, go
And set friendship in motion
GO, GO, GO!
Let's go, go, go, and show
What good friends we can be
Thomas: (spoken) "Let's give it try, come on!"
Let's go, go, go
And we'll start a commotion
From ocean to ocean
Set friendship in motion
WITH ME!
Set friendship in motion
Let's set friendship in motion
'Cos there may be
Twists and turns on the tracks
Keep moving forward
No looking back
And then you'll see
True friends will be
There for you
Thomas: (spoken) "'Cos that's what friends do, yeah!"
Let's go, go, go
And set friendship in motion
GO, GO, GO!
Let's go, go, go, and show
What good friends we can be
Thomas: (spoken) "Let's give it try, come on!"
Let's go, go, go
And we'll start a commotion
From ocean to ocean
Thomas: (spoken) "Come on!"
Set friendship in motion
WITH ME!
Thomas: Clap your hands
Stomp your feet
Across the land
To the beat
Let's sing it again
Let's set friendship in motion
Let's set friendship in motion
Let's set friendship in motion
Let's set friendship in motion
Let's set friendship in motion
Let's go, go, go
And set friendship in motion
GO, GO, GO!
Let's go, go, go, and show
What good friends we can be
Let's go, go, go
And we'll start a commotion
From ocean to ocean
Set friendship in motion
WITH ME!
Set friendship in motion
Let's set friendship in motion
Come set friendship in motion
WITH ME!

Trivia

  • In both versions, before and after the chorus is sung the first time, as well as at the end of the song, part of Thomas' Classic Theme can be heard.
  • The logo of Big World! Big Adventures! in the prototype version had bigger letters highlighted in blue, but the final version used mismatched sized letters that are all yellow. The prototype logo also faded on the screen, while the final on dropped in letter by letter.
  • This is the only song of the twenty-first series that was not a CGI remake.
  • Joseph May voices Thomas for this song. There is no version sung by John Hasler.
  • The title of the song is the name of the brand's second marketing slogan.
  • A version of this song featuring the diesel engines was featured in the twenty-third series episode, Diesel Do Right, sung by Kerry Shale. In a sense of irony for this version, Shale originally auditioned for Thomas in Hero of the Rails.
  • The South African Version of the Series 22 version is at a lower pitch and key.
