Alternative Lyrics & Related Songs
This version has an engine driver instead of a station master
Down at the station early in the morning
See the little Puffer Bellies all in a row
See the engine driver pull the little handle
Chug, chug, toot, toot
Off they go.
These 2 verses give us a different version
This is for the people who never rode the train
Whether in California or even up in Maine
Makes no diffâ€™rence if youâ€™re two
Or a hundred and two
Youâ€™ll get a treat when you order
A seat on the olâ€™ choo-choo
Down by the station early in the morning
See the little puffer bellies all in a row
See the station master turn the little handle
Chug, chug, toot, toot, off we go
