Sounds is the first song from the eighth series. A second music video was later made using CGI footage from the thirteenth series and was later renamed The Sound Song.

Lyrics

Series 8 version

"All Aboard!" and "Close the doors!"
Whistle blows and the engine roars
Spinning wheels beginning to grip
These are the sounds as we start our trip
Rattling rails and cheerful chuffs
Clattering carriages huffs and puffs
With a "Whiss" on the whistle
And a "Wheesh" on the brakes
These are the sounds that the engines make
Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)
Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)
Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)
These are the sounds that the engines make
Happy hoots as the fields rush by
Shovelling coal how the time does fly
Proudly race full steam ahead
Screeching brakes when the lights go red
A wheesh of steam and clanking joints
Shuddering doors and clattering points
With a 'Whiss' on the whistle
And a 'Wheesh' on the brakes
These are the sounds that the engines make
Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)
Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)
Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)
These are the sounds that the engines make
Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)
Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)
Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)
These are the sounds that the engines make
These are the sounds as we start our trip
Big wheels squeal as we start to grip
Off we go with a chuff, chuff, chuff
Climbing slow with a puff, puff, puff
Happy hoots as the fields rush by
Shovelling coal how the time does fly
Proudly race full steam ahead
Screeching brakes when the lights go red
A wheesh of steam and clanking joints
Shuddering doors and clattering points
With a 'Whiss' on the whistle
And a 'Wheesh' on the brakes
These are the sounds that the engines make
Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)
Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)
Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)
These are the sounds that the engines make
Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)
Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)
Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)
These are the sounds that the engines make

Series 13 version/Alternate cut

"All Aboard!" and "Close the doors!"
Whistle blows and the engine roars
Spinning wheels beginning to grip
These are the sounds as we start our trip
Rattling rails and cheerful chuffs
Clattering carriages huffs and puffs
With a "Whiss" on the whistle
And a "Wheesh" on the brakes
These are the sounds that the engines make
Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)
Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)
Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)
These are the sounds that the engines make
Happy hoots as the fields rush by
Shovelling coal how the time does fly
Proudly race full steam ahead
Screeching brakes when the lights go red
A wheesh of steam and clanking joints
Shuddering doors and clattering points
With a 'Whiss' on the whistle
And a 'Wheesh' on the brakes
These are the sounds that the engines make
Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)
Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)
Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)
These are the sounds that the engines make
Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)
Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)
Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)
These are the sounds that the engines make
Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)
Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)
Chugga-chugga (Wheesh)
These are the sounds that the engines make
