Strength is a song from the tenth series, describing what strength is used for.

Lyrics

You've got to have strength!
Strength to make the wheels go round.
Strength!
Strength to lift things off the ground.
You've got to have strength!
Strength to get you to the top.
Strength will keep you going
When you want to stop.
You'll go that extra mile
When you're hauling freight
Or go a little faster
When you might be late.
And if there's heavy metal
Lying on the line
Diesel 10's so strong
He'll clear it every time.
You've got to have strength!
Strength to make the wheels go round.
Strength!
Strength to lift things off the ground.
You've got to have strength!
Strength to get you to the top.
Strength will keep you going
When you want to stop.
You'll give that little extra
When the going's tough.
Strength will keep you puffing
When you've had enough.
Just remember as you're
Speeding down the track
Strength not only takes you there.
It brings you back.
You've got to have strength!
Strength to make the wheels go round.
Strength!
Strength to lift things off the ground.
You've got to have strength!
Strength to get you to the top.
Strength will keep you going
When you want to stop.
You've got to have strength!
Strength to make the wheels go round.
Strength!
Strength to lift things off the ground.
You've got to have strength!
Strength to get you to the top.
Strength will keep you going
When you want to stop.
You've got to have strength!
Strength to make the wheels go round.
Strength!
Strength to lift things off the ground.
You've got to have strength!
Strength to get you to the top.
Strength will keep you going
When you want to stop.
