North of the Island, there lives a dear old train, A little tram engine, Toby is his name. He's quaint and old fashioned, but careful and wise. His coach is Henrietta and she’s seen better days.
His mind keeps returning to the good old days When they were busy working everyday. But nobody rides with them nowadays. They can't understand why things have changed. Their line is closing down today, forever. Toby, oh Toby,
What will become of you? The world's much nicer whenever we see you.
Toby, dear Toby, There's still lots that you can do Oldies but Goldies, we still care about you.
All of the children came to say goodbye They clapped and cheered as Toby rang his bell, “Bye bye.” Everyone was sad to see them go Whatever will they do, and where will they go?
Suddenly news came to brighten up their day How Toby and Henrietta were needed right away The Fat Controller had written to say Could they please come and help right away. Now they're part of his family, forever.
Toby, oh Toby, Show them what you can do The world's much nicer whenever we see you.
Toby, dear Toby, There's so much to learn from you. Oldies but Goldies, we still care about you.
