Lyrics

Intro
High up in the Sodor Hills
Among the lakes and trees
There are some very special friends
Thomas likes to see
Chorus A
They are the narrow gauge engines
Running on narrow gauge track
Friends like Rusty, Duncan,
Fearless Freddie, Mighty Mac
They've got their own Controller
Mr. Percival is his name
And 'though they're small, they're strong,
And Really Useful just the same
Bridge
They're Sodor's best kept secret
Who people hardly know
Because they're small, they take the loads
Where bigger trains can't go
Verse 1
They work with James and Thomas
At the transfer yard
And 'though they're cute and friendly
These engines work so hard
Chorus B
They are the narrow gauge engines
Running on narrow gauge track
Skarloey, Peter Sam, Rheneas
Sir Handel at the back
They've got their own Controller
Mr. Percival is his name
And 'though they're small, they're strong,
And Really Useful just the same
Verse 2
Walkers, campers, fishermen
To all of them they're friends
Puffing proudly up the slopes
And rattling round the bends
Chorus A
They are the narrow gauge engines
Running on narrow gauge track
Friends like Rusty, Duncan,
Fearless Freddie, Mighty Mac
They've got their own Controller
Mr. Percival is his name
And 'though they're small, they're strong,
And Really Useful just the same *repeat once*
