Narrator: The next morning, Thomas could hardly contain his excitement.

Thomas: Is it these ones? Is it those? Which trucks are they, Edward?

Edward: These trucks, Thomas. But, wait. I need to tell you something....

Thomas: I know. I know. I have to be coupled up before I go. You don't have to tell me. I've learned my lesson.

(Thomas backs up into the trucks)

Troublesome Trucks: Ow. Ow. Oy. Give it a rest.

Edward: Troublesome Trucks can play tricks on you, Thomas. It's not the same as in the yard. They'll push you off the rails if you're not careful.

Thomas: Don't be silly. (Toot toot) You worry too much, Edward. Like Henry. (Grunts)

The engines always think they are so clever
And so they like to bump the trucks around
They bump them in the sidings, they bump them in the yards
They better beware, they better take care
They better be on their guard...

Edward: Thomas! Be careful!

Thomas pulls the trucks along the line
He's happy and he thinks it's going fine
The trucks all start to moan
They rattle and they groan
Look out, Thomas!
Watch out, Thomas!
That's a warning sign!


Thomas: Come along. Come along.

(The scene cuts to Thomas puffing up Gordon’s hill)

Before long, Thomas comes to Gordon's Hill
It's hard work and he really has to pull

Troublesome Trucks: Hold back. Hold back.

But soon he's at the top
And then he just can't stop
Troublesome Trucks: On! On! On! (Thomas yells)
The trucks go faster still

Because those Troublesome Trucks will get the engines every time
Troublesome Trucks will run the engines off the line
They push them here, push them there, until they go too fast
Then they push them once again, laughing while they crash...
Troublesome Trucks will get the engines every time
Troublesome Trucks will run the engines off the line
They don't care how big they are, to them it's just a game...
Those Troublesome Trucks, will get them all the same

They don't care how big they are, to them it's just a game...
Those Troublesome Trucks, will get them all the same!

(Thomas sighs in relief)

The Fat Controller: Thomas. What are you doing here? And why did you come in so fast?

Thomas: I brought Edward's trucks for him, sir. But, they were pushing me.

The Fat Controller: You have a lot to learn about trucks, little Thomas. That's why I asked Edward to bring these trucks and not you. If you're not prepared to be patient and learn how to do things properly, I'll have to keep you in the shed.

Thomas: (Gasps) No, sir. Please, sir. I want to learn. I want to be a really useful engine.

Narrator: The Fat Controller was not just cross with Thomas.

(The scene fades to Edward at Knapford)

Narrator: He was cross with Edward too. He told both his engines that they had to stay in the yard until Thomas could learn as much about trucks as Edward.

Thomas: I'm sorry, Edward. This is all my fault.

Edward: Never mind, Thomas. At least we're working together again.
