Lyrics

The train jumped in the water
To see if he could swim
But when he jumped in the water
He just sank right in

Chorus
He said, "Oh no I can't float.
How I wish I was a boat!
I guess there's really not much hope...
That a ten ton engine like me could swim.

The train chugged under the water
His fire was growing cold
When he got out of the water
He felt good as gold

Chorus
Break
