The Lyrics

A low-bitrate mp3 of the song can be found here.
Train’s stopped, it’s stalling, now it’s dead
Init-ially I had thinked the signal’s simply red
Shutting down commute
This train’s stopped it’s hauling and the thought ain’t enthralling

In dis-gust, the Fat Controller, he was rung
And I gave that bureaucrat the sharp end of my tongue
Bleeping words, he copped
This pit stop is galling and complaint I’ll be scrawling

But when one’s steam won’t blow
You’re screwed my friend, believe me, so replete-ly
It’s oh so wrong still, that my trip ends incompletely

(Choo-choo, choo-choo’s done
Choo-choo, choo-choo’s done)

Train’s stopped, it’s stalling, now it’s dead
Hope thump doesn’t mean on ties that there’s a bovine dead
C’llidin’ I don’t need
There’s no locomotion on this train, I’m profanin’
Conductor - see
Put a murraine on thee!

If I sit long then caboose-stress creeps up and peeves me

Train’s stopped, it’s stalling, now it’s dead
Does poor little Thomas need to rest back in the shed?
Might need coal, does he?
That little tank engine’s got the brains for obtainin’
Work absence, see
He is cunning, trust me...
On Merry & Pippin's mega-midnight-mix of the song, the alternate last verse otherwise infers the reason for Thomas' tiredness was borne from his activities the night before, endlessly shunting Annie and Clarabelle in the shed...

Five BJ's for this 'right on track' , AmTrak theme song redux... and the Thomas/Thomas 'coincidence' is downright spooky...

Dom Joly's 'Complainers' series did an item on how rubbish First Trains in the West Country was. The campaigners were forbidden to sing anti-First songs at the platform - this could have been one!
