Down by the station
Early in the morning
See the little pufferbellies
All in a row
See the station master
Turn the little handle
Puff, puff, toot, toot
Off we go!

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 diff’rence if you’re two
Or a hundred and two
You’ll get a treat when you order
A seat on the ol’ 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
