Transcript

Ringo Starr US version

  • Ringo Starr: One night, Henry and Gordon were alone with James. Although Sir Topham Hatt was beginning to think well of them. Whenever a chance came the other engines will talk of nothing but bootlace.
  • Henry: Remember when they had to use a bootlace to get you out of trouble James?
  • Ringo Starr: They would tease. James tried to get back by talking about Henry who got shut up in a tunnel and Gordon who got stuck on a hill. But they wouldn't listen.
  • Gordon: You talk too much little James.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: A fine strong engine like me has something to talk about. I'm the only engine who can pull the express. When I'm not there, they need two engines. Think of that. I've pulled expresses for years, and have never once lost my way. I seem to know the right line by instinct.
  • Ringo Starr: Every wise engine knows, of course, that the signalman sets the switches to make the engines run on the right track. But Gordon was so proud he had forgotten.
  • Gordon: Wake up, James.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Gordon next morning.
  • Gordon: It's nearly time for the express. What are you doing? Odd Jobs? Ah well. We all have to begin somewhere, don't we? Run along and get my coaches. Don't be late.
  • Ringo Starr: James went to get Gordon's coaches. They were all shining with new paint. He was careful not to bump them and they followed him smoothly into the station, singing happily...
  • Coaches: We're going away, we're going away.
  • James: I wish I was going with you.
  • Ringo Starr: Said James.
  • James: I should love to pull the express and go flying above the line!
  • Ringo Starr: Gordon with much noise and blowing off steam, got ready to back on to the train. Sir Topham Hatt was on the train with other important people and as soon as they heard the conductor's whistle, Gordon started.
  • Gordon: Look at me now! Look at me now!
  • Ringo Starr: He puffed and the coaches glided after him.
  • Gordon: Boop boop boop boop boop! Goodbye, little James, see you tomorrow!
  • Ringo Starr: James watched the train disappeared and then went back to work. He pushed some freight cars into their proper sidings and went to fetch the coaches for another train. James had just brought the coaches into the platform when he heard a mournful noise. There was Gordon trying to sneak into the station without being noticed.
  • James: Hello, Gordon. Is it tomorrow?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked James. Gordon didn't answer. He just let off steam feebly.
  • James: Did you lose your weight, Gordon?
  • Ringo Starr: Said James.
  • Gordon: No, it was lost for me. I was switched off the main line onto the loop. I have to go all around and back again.
  • James: Perhaps it was instinct.
  • Ringo Starr: Said James. Meanwhile, all the passengers hurried to the ticket window.
  • Passengers: We want our money back!
  • Ringo Starr: They shouted, but Sir Topham Hatt climbed onto a cart and blew the conductor's whistle so loudly that they all stopped to look at him. Then he promised a new train at once.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Gordon can't do it.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Will you pull it for us, James?
  • James: Yes sir, I'll try.
  • Ringo Starr: So James was coupled on, and everyone got in.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Do your best, James.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • James: Come along, come along!
  • Ringo Starr: Said James.
  • Coaches: You're pulling us well, you're pulling us well!
  • Ringo Starr: Sang the coaches.
  • James: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed James. Bridges and stations flashed by the passengers cheered and they soon reached the station. Everyone said thank you to James and Sir Topham Hatt was very impressed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Would you like to pull the express sometimes?
  • James: Yes, please.
  • Ringo Starr: Answered James. Next day when James came by, Gordon was pushing freight cars.
  • Gordon: I like some quiet work for a change.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Gordon: I'm teaching these cars manners. You did well with those coaches I hear. Good, we'll show them.
  • Ringo Starr: And he gave his cars a bump. James and Gordon are now good friends. James sometimes takes the express to give Gordon a rest. Gordon never talks about bootlaces, and they are both quite agreed on a subject of freight cars.

George Carlin version

  • George Carlin: One night, Henry and Gordon were alone with James. Although Sir Topham Hatt was beginning to think well of them. Whenever a chance came the other engines will talk of nothing but bootlace.
