The Island Song, alternately titled Island Song, is a song from the fourth series dedicated to the Island of Sodor. It aired in the US on the Mr. Conductor's Thomas Tales episode, Wish You Were Here in 1996. It was later re-released with a new CGI music video as part of Thomas' YouTube World Tour on 22 July 2015.

An instrumental lullaby version was created for the digital album, Lullabies.

Lyrics

Picture a land where the sky is so blue
A storybook land of wonder
A magical island just waiting for you
Island of Sodor will make your dreams come true
Imagine a place where the sun always smiles
The valleys are green as can be
The friends that you love are all waiting for you
Island of Sodor will make your dreams come true
Children follow the dream
To a land of make-believe
The Island of Sodor
A magical land where dreams come true
Follow the road that leads to your dream
Over the hills and mountains
Look for the skies with stars in their eyes
Island of Sodor will make your dreams come true
Children follow the dream
To a land of make-believe
The Island of Sodor
A magical land where dreams come true
The Island of Sodor
Magical land where dreams come true
