Lyrics

Have a look about you, take in what you see
There's a world around you wherever you may be
Favourite names and places everywhere you go
Sodor is our island, the only home we know
Out of Henry's Tunnel or climbing Gordon's Hill
Past the castle ruins toward the watermill
We'll whistle past the lighthouse, gleaming red and white
We'll leave the sheds at Tidmouth, then come back home at night
Take a look about you, enjoy the world you see
Be it town or country, there's such variety
Old familiar faces everywhere you go
Sodor is our island, the only home we know
Doo be doo be do bah, doo be doo be do bah
Doo be doo be do bah, doo be doo be do bah
Doo be doo be do bah, doo be doo be do bah
Have a look about you, take in what you see
There's a world around you wherever you may be
Favourite names and places everywhere you go
Sodor is our island, the only home we know
Across the old steel bridge or past the church we'll go
Up beyond the windmill or ploughing through the snow
On towards the castle, and past the sea so blue
Wherever you are going, here's what you should do
Have a look about you, take in what you see
There's a world around you wherever you may be
Favourite names and places everywhere you go
Sodor is our island, the only home we know
Doo be doo be do bah
Doo be doo be do bah
Doo be doo be do bah
Take a look about you, enjoy the world you see
Be it town or country, there's such variety
Old familiar faces everywhere you go
Sodor is our island, the only home we know
Doo be doo be do bah, doo be doo be do bah
Doo be doo be do bah, doo be doo be do bah
Doo be doo be do bah, doo be doo be do bah
