Streamlining is the second song featured in The Great Race. It is sung by Thomas. The song is reprised by Gordon later in the film as The Shooting Star is Coming Through.

Lyrics

Thomas: Maybe I can do anything I want to. If I go as fast as the Flying Scotsman, The Fat Controller/Sir Topham Hatt will definitely take me to the show!
Annie: Ooh! But you can't go as fast as the Flying Scotsman!
Caitlin: Hi, Thomas!
Thomas: (gasps) Caitlin! What if I was streamlined like Caitlin? Streamlining makes engines much faster!
Annie and Clarabel: (laugh) Silly Thomas!
Clarabel: Whoever heard of a streamlined --
Annie and Clarabel: Whoa!!!
Thomas: All I want is a bit of redefining
A slinky, slicker, swifter coat that's smooth and shining
To get the speed I really need...
Streamlining!
Whoosh!
You'll wonder who was passing through
Whoosh!
You won't believe it's even true
Whoosh!
But all you'll see of me will be...
A shiny streak of racing blue!
I've come to you, my friend
As I need some redesigning
To be a tank engine is so confining
Give me the curves I deserve...
Streamlining!
(giggles)
Wo-how!
(gasps) Amazing!
Wow!
I love it!
Whoosh!
You'll wonder who was passing through (Annie and Clarabel: Passing through)
Whoosh!
You won't believe it's even true (Annie and Clarabel: Even true)
Whoosh!
But all you'll see of me will be... (Annie and Clarabel: Do, do, do-do)
A shiny streak of racing blue!
(giggles)
Annie and Clarabel: (Go, Thomas, go)
(Go, Thomas, go)
All I want is a little redefining (Annie and Clarabel: Do, do-do-do)
But certain other engines might be reconsigning (Annie and Clarabel: Do, do-do-do)
I'll get a shape that makes 'em gape (Annie and Clarabel: Do, do-do-do)
(Go, Thomas, go)
I'll have the curves that I deserve (Annie and Clarabel: Do, do-do-do)
(Go, Thomas, go)
I'll get the speed I really need... (Annie and Clarabel: Do, do-do-do)
(Go, Thomas, go)
Streamlining!
Whoaaaaaa!!!
