Lyrics

It was a cold and frosty Christmas Eve
On the magical Island of Sodor
A jolly little engine chuffed along
Through the fallen snow
He peeped his shiny whistle
And he sang a merry song
His bright lamp shining brightly
to guide him all the way home
And he sang
"Peep! Peep! Peep! My whistle blows"
"What will Santa bring me? I don't know"
"Ho! Ho! Ho! It's Christmas Eve!"
"In Santa, I believe"
Wintertime is for everyone
Every boy and girl will have so much fun
Families gather, friends to greet
We'll listen to carollers in the street!
Gingerbread houses and candy canes
Decorations sparkle on our trains
Playing and sledding in the snow
Thomas couldn't wait to get home
So he sang
"Peep! Peep! Peep! My whistle blows"
"What will Santa bring me? I don't know"
"Ho! Ho! Ho! It's Christmas Eve"
"In Santa, I believe"
But then the engine hit a giant stone
Hidden from view under a blanket of snow
It caused a bump, his lamp went out
Now he couldn't see where to go
He stared at the stars for a miracle
When a shining light twinkled in the sky
Was it a shooting star, or maybe Santa's sleigh?
He followed that star and he was on his way
So, he followed that light all the way home
To his engine shed, where Thomas belonged
But just as his sleepy eyes closed for bed
He heard a strange sound coming from the roof of his shed
And a jolly laugh that went "Ho! Ho! Ho!"
Could it be?
Is it...Santa?
On Christmas Eve?
And he whispered
"Peep! Peep! Peep! My whistle blows"
"What will Santa bring me? I don't know"
"Ho! Ho! Ho! It's Christmas Eve"
"In Santa, I believe"
Then in the morning light of Sodor
Thomas found a gift right by his door
He opened to find a lamp so bright
It sparkled and shined, and it fit just right
And a note from Santa that said:
"To the little engine who followed me home"
"This Christmas Eve, I am so pleased"
"That you still believe"
The little engine sang
"Peep! Peep! Peep! My whistle blows"
"What will Santa bring me? Now I know"
"A special little lamp and Christmas cheer"
"I hope that Santa comes..."
"I hope that Santa comes next year!"

Trivia

  • The song refers to Thomas primarily as a little blue engine, but he is mentioned by name three times.
  • The music video contains multiple scenes that were edited to look like they take place at night.
  • The lines, "But then the engine hit a giant stone, hidden from view under a blanket of snow." was a reference to the sixth series episode, It's Only Snow when Thomas' snowplough hit a rock under some snow.
