Lyrics

The Great Race

Duck: It's gonna be special!
It's gonna be great!
Off to the Mainland without coaches or freight
Edward, Norman, Stanley and Duck: Please Sir, I beg you
I just have to know
Will you won't you take me to the Railway Show?
Henry: Take me, Sir
I pull the heaviest trains
I'm such a mighty engine, Sir
It's never a strain

(Gordon laughs)

Gordon: It's not a tough decision, though I have to confess
It's hard to find a better engine for the express

Sir Topham Hatt: Mmm, precisely!
Gordon: But...I didn't mean not to take me, Sir!

Philip: Haha!
I know I'm kinda small, Sir
But I'm not a beginner
I had a race with Gordon once
And I was the winner!

Gordon: Oh...
(Philip yelps)

Diesel: You ought to take me, Sir
I'm modern and new
Your first diesel ever
I'm loyal, kind and true
Percy, Emily and Sidney: It's gonna be special
It's gonna be great
Off to the Mainland without coaches or freight
Charlie, Scruff and Stafford: Please Sir, I beg you
You can't tell me no
James: Will you won't you take me to the Railway Show?
Flynn and Belle: Fast engines
Henry and Daisy: Long engines
Bill, Ben, Marion and Timothy: Tough engines
Skarloey, Rheneas, Sir Handel and Peter Sam: Strong engines
Salty, Porter and Paxton: Everyone who's any engine's eager to go

Cranky: I'm not goin' anywhere.

Oliver, Bert, Rex and Mike: Will you won't you take us to the Railway Show?
Stephen: It's gonna be special
It's gonna be great
Duck, Donald and Douglas: Leavin' behind all our coaches and freight
Please Sir, we're beggin'
Ya just can't say no
Gordon, James and Diesel: Will you won't you take us to the Railway Show?
Henry, Duck, Donald and Douglas: Will you won't you take us to the Railway Show?
Thomas: Will you won't you take me to the (wears out) Railway Show...?
(Gordon, James and Diesel laugh)
Donald and Douglas: Leaving behind all our coaches and freight
Please Sir, I begging
You just can't say no
Gordon, James and Diesel: Will you won't you take us to the Railway Show?
Henry, Duck, Donald and Douglas: Will you won't you take us to the Railway Show?
Thomas: Will you want to take me to the Railway Show?

The Big Race

Henry: Sir, sir!

The Fat Controller: Yes, Henry?

Henry: Will you take me to the Great Railway Show?

The Fat Controller: Henry...

Henry: Please, sir! I pull loads of heavy trains, sir! I think I could win the strength competition! I'm such a mighty engine, you know!

The Fat Controller: Perhaps, but-

James: I think you should take me, sir. My paintwork will surely win some sort of competition!
Henry: I think my strength is more important than your paintwork. I'm built this way. Your red coat can be replaced quite easily.
James: (gasps) Oh, it can?! Wow, I never knew that!
Gordon: Personally, I'd choose myself, sir. I am fastest and best-
Henry: -and we know the rest
Gordon: ...that's not clever, Henry. Didn't you not want to go?

Nonetheless, I can go up to 100 miles per hour. Then I can beat my famous brother!

The Fat Controller: Alright, everyone, settle down. I'll get all this sorted soon, but please just-

Philip: Oh, hello everyone! Why don't you take me?!
James: ...seriously?
Philip: Of course! I may be new and small, but I raced Gordon once, and I was the winner!
James: ...no you weren't.

(Gordon snorts)

Philip: Yes I was, James. He wasn't behind me the whole time. I won easily!

The Fat Controller: Do I want to know about this?

Philip: Actually yes, you do! At least you should. So first I was-
The Fat Controller: It was a rhetorical question, Philip...
Philip: Oh.

The Fat Controller: Alright everyone. Now, can you please just-

(Diesel bumps Philip who races back to the yard)

Philip: I still wooooon!

(Diesel snickers)

Diesel: Take me, sir, I was your first diesel, you know. I'm loyal, kind, and true, as well as modern and revolutionary.

(Gordon sniffs)

Gordon: What competition would you compete in, eh...?
Diesel: ...um... I don't know...
Gordon: Exactly. Leave us be and-
Duck, Donald and Douglas: Sir, sir!

Can we make a suggestion? Please?

The Fat Controller: ...three more?

Duck: I'm a very strong shunter, sir. Remember why you gave me a branch line?
The Fat Controller: Yes, I do, but-

Duck: It's because I arranged the yard so well, of course

Diesel: Oh of course, you get a branch line, and I'm simply looked at is devious...
Donald: Or ye cuid tak' us! We wirk weel th'gither!
Douglas: That's richt!

We could win if we practice.

James: Aren't you not supposed to take twins...? James
Douglas: Whit? How come?
Henry: Well... uh... it sounds like you'd be cheating
Donald: Whit nonsense!

(The Fat Controller sighs and is about to tell everyone off)

Stanley, Edward and Norman: Please sir! I beg you...
Charlie, Scruff and Stafford: You can't tell me know.
Sidney: But...
Stanley, Edward, Norman, Sidney, Charlie, Scruff and Stafford: Will you won't you take me to the railway show?
Flynn and Belle: Fast engines!
Daisy and BoCo: Long engines!
Bill, Ben, Timothy and Marion: Tough engines!
Skarloey, Rheneas, Sir Handel and Peter Sam: Strong engines!
Salty, Porter and Paxton: Anyone who any engine's eager to go!

Cranky: I'm not goin' anywhere.

Oliver, Mike, Bert and Rex: Will you won't you take us to the railway show?
Stephen: It's gonna be special! It's gonna be great!
Geoffrey: Leaving behind all our coaches and freight!
Please sir, I'm begging. Ya just can't say no!
Gordon, James and Diesel: Will you won't you take us to the railway show?
Henry, Gordon, James, Duck, Donald, Douglas, Geoffrey and Diesel: Will you won't you take us to the railway show?

(Thomas' whistle blows)

The Fat Controller: Oh... lovely... another engine...

Thomas: Why don't you take me?!

(Henry, Gordon, James and Diesel laugh)
