- Thomas and James are racing, racing to the Wharf
- Everyone likes to be the first, not second, third or fourth!
- Pistons pumping wildly, boilers fit to burst,
- There's something really special for the engine who comes first.
- Steaming through the countryside, imagine their elation
- Speeding past the platforms, they're not stopping at the station.
- Racing under bridges and then rattling round the bends.
- A very special prize awaits the winner when it ends.
- Children on the bridges, waving as they both rush by.
- Go so fast, if trains had wings, you'd think they'd start to fly!
- Wheeshing and then whooshing, oh, but what's that up ahead?
- It can't be true . . . they'll have to stop . . . the signal's turned to red!
- Come on, come on, I'll win this race . . .
- I'll take a rest, then set the pace . . .
- He's out of puff, he's out of steam . . .
- Hurray, hurray! The signal's green!
- (chorus x2)
- On the UK DVD, this song is called Racing to the Wharf.
- This music video features the least amount of characters to date, with three.
- The close-up of James' wheels on the left in this scene is almost identical to the one from the second series episode Old Iron.
- Edward and the Mail - Both signals turned green.
