The Work Song is a Direct-to-Home Video song from Jack and the Sodor Construction Company.

Lyrics

CHORUS:

Sodor's always busy with jobs that must be done
Being really useful is not just work, it's fun
Hard work can be dirty with coal and dust and grime
But if we choose to work or play, we choose to work each time
There are jobs across the island, today we're on the quay
Loading this and shunting that like fish fresh from the sea
We might be in the quarry or pulling the express
Whatever work we're doing, we always do our best

CHORUS:

Sodor's always busy with jobs that must be done
Being really useful is not just work, it's fun
Hard work can be dirty with coal and dust and grime
But if we choose to work or play, we choose to work each time
It takes a team of engines to clear snow from the track
But when you're building buildings, you'll need Jack and his pack
They're digging, dipping, loading, whatever duty calls
Filling holes with concrete or knocking over walls

CHORUS:

Sodor's always busy with jobs that must be done
Being really useful is not just work, it's fun
Hard work can be dirty with coal and dust and grime
But if we choose to work or play, we choose to work each time

(Instrumental break and guitar solo)

What's the next job waiting? Only time will tell
If a job's worth doing, we like to do it well

CHORUS:

Sodor's always busy with jobs that must be done
Being really useful is not just work, it's fun
Hard work can be dirty with coal and dust and grime
But if we choose to work or play, we choose to work each time

CHORUS:

Sodor's always busy with jobs that must be done
Being really useful is not just work, it's fun
Hard work can be dirty with coal and dust and grime
But if we choose to work or play, we choose to work each time
