Lyrics

Series 21 Version

Thomas: Clap your hands

Stomp your feet

Across the land

To the beat

Sing it along with us

Let's set friendship in motion

Let's set friendship in motion

You can stay on the tracks

And stand still all day

Or you can keep chugging

And get on your way

Talk to people you meet

And learn something that's new

Make friends everywhere you go

They'll be there through and through

Let's go, go, go

And set friendship in motion

GO, GO, GO!

Let's go, go, go, and show

What good friends we can be

Thomas: (spoken) "Let's give it try, come on!"

Let's go, go, go

And we'll start a commotion

From ocean to ocean

Set friendship in motion

WITH ME!

Set friendship in motion

Let's set friendship in motion

'Cos there may be

Twists and turns on the tracks

Keep moving forward

No looking back

And then you'll see

True friends will be

There for you

Thomas: (spoken) "'Cos that's what friends do, yeah!"

Let's go, go, go

And set friendship in motion

GO, GO, GO!

Let's go, go, go, and show

What good friends we can be

Thomas: (spoken) "Let's give it try, come on!"

Let's go, go, go

And we'll start a commotion

From ocean to ocean

Thomas: (spoken) "Come on!"

Set friendship in motion

WITH ME!

Thomas: Clap your hands

Stomp your feet

Across the land

To the beat

Let's sing it again

Let's set friendship in motion

Let's set friendship in motion

Let's set friendship in motion

Let's set friendship in motion

Let's set friendship in motion

Let's go, go, go

And set friendship in motion

GO, GO, GO!

Let's go, go, go, and show

What good friends we can be

Let's go, go, go

And we'll start a commotion

From ocean to ocean

Set friendship in motion

WITH ME!

Set friendship in motion

Let's set friendship in motion

Come set friendship in motion

WITH ME!

Trivia

  • In both versions, before and after the chorus is sung the first time, as well as at the end of the song, part of Thomas' Classic Theme can be heard.
  • The logo of Big World! Big Adventures! in the prototype version had bigger letters highlighted in blue, but the final version used mismatched sized letters that are all yellow. The prototype logo also faded on the screen, while the final on dropped in letter by letter.
  • This is the only song of the twenty-first series that was not a CGI remake.
  • Joseph May voices Thomas for this song. There is no version sung by John Hasler.
