Thomas is a tank engine
Who's small and short and blue.
He sometimes causes mischief, but
His heart is good and true.
Engines don't have hearts," you say.
And that is very smart.
But Thomas' good nature proves
He doesn't need a heart.
For those with hearts are good and kind.
They help when times are tough.
They stick by friends and those in need
And cannot give enough.
They listen when they're spoken to
And try to do their best
They know there's time to work real hard
And time to play and rest.
So Thomas doesn't have a heart,
But he is all of these
Good, hard-working, smart and kind
He always aims to please.
And on his Branch Line, back and forth
He's loyal to the end.
And with his boiler he is still
A really useful friend.
