Lyrics

There was a little railroad train with loads and loads of toys,
all starting out to find a home with little girls and boys.
And as that little railroad train began to move along,
the little engine up in front was heard to sing this song:
Choo choo choo choo, choo choo choo choo, I feel so good today.
Oh, hear the track, oh clickity clack, I’ll go my merry way.

The little train went rousing on so fast it seemed to fly.
Until it reached a mountain that went almost to the sky.
The little engine moaned and groaned and huffed and puffed away,
but halfway to the top it gave just gave up and seemed to say
I can’t go on, I can’t go on, I’m weary as can be.
I can’t go on, I can’t go on, this job is not for me. (5 years and 3049 days ago)

Aaaw... that poor little train I don't like it, when children songs end so sad. You created a very cute little train! The "9" as the nose is so cute. I suppose that picture shows it before the mountain? It looks so happy Good luck!

The toys got out to push, but all in vain alas, alack. And then a great big engine came a-whistling down the track. They asked if it would kindly pull them up the mountainside, but with a high and mighty sneer, it scornfully replied don’t bother me, don’t bother me to pull the likes of you, don’t bother me, don’t bother me, I’ve better things to do. The toys all started crying cause that engine was so mean. And then there cam another one, the smallest ever seen. And though it seemed that she could hardly pull herself along, she hitched on to the front and as she pulled and sang this song, I t

author says:

I think I can, I think I can, I think I have a plan, and I can do most anything if I only think I can. Then up that great big mountain with the cars all full of toys, and soon they reached the waiting arms of little girls and boys. And though that ends the story, it will do you lots of good to take a lesson from the little engine that could. Just think you can, just think you can and have that understood, and very soon you’ll start to say I always knew I could. I knew I could, I knew I could, I knew I could, I knew I could.
