Lyrics

Short Version

(chorus)
We'll sing a song for Gordon,
He's big, he's fast, he's proud
His paint is blue, so strong and true,
And his whistle's really loud!
The fastest train on Sodor,
You can't forget his name
So when we've sung for Gordon, well,
Let's sing it once again
Through wind and rain he thunders on
On him we can rely
Reliable and useful too
And that's the reason why
(chorus)

Long Version

(chorus)
We'll sing a song for Gordon,
He's big, he's fast, he's proud
His paint is blue, so strong and true,
And his whistle's really loud!
The fastest train on Sodor,
You can't forget his name
So when we've sung for Gordon, well,
Let's sing it once again
Through wind and rain he thunders on
On him we can rely
Reliable and useful too
And that's the reason why
(chorus)
The journeys never tire him out
He'll work all day and night
And everyone admires him
His boiler gleaming bright
(chorus x2)
