The Steam Team is a song from Series 22 dedicated to the characters in the team - Thomas, Gordon, James, Percy, Emily, Nia and Rebecca.


Clap your hands, stomp your feet
Feel the rhythm as the trains go by
(As the trains go by)
They're the team, best in steam
Making tracks to discovery
Get on board, pull the cord
Blow your whistle for the dream team
(The dream team)
Work together, to be better
Friends forever, here's the Steam Team
(The Steam Team)
Gordon is thundering down his line
Nia is always thoughtful and kind
Percy pulls all the mail on time
James' paint, it really shines
Emily's bright, Rebecca is fun
Let's not forget Thomas
He's the cheeky one
All aboard the Steam Team!
Get on board!
(Chorus) x2
