Gone Fishing

  • Ash: (singing) Sometimes it's nice to take some time out. Do what you really want to do. Just to relax and let the world fly by you. Forget your worry, no need to hurry. Just leave a sign to say... Gone fishing, gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way, Gone fishing. Gone fishing, Gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way. Why don't we all go fishing? You drop your line down to the river, Waiting to see what you can find. Whatever life has to offer you. You know you'll take it, stand up and face it, Smiling along the way. Gone fishing, gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way, Gone fishing. Gone fishing, Gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way. Why don't we all go fishing? There's nothing better on a sunny day, When all your work is done. Throw down your line, settle down. Surprise, surprise, look what you've found. Gone fishing, gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way, Gone fishing. Gone fishing, Gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way. Why don't we all go fishing? It's a sunny old day and you're on your way... Gone fishing!

Ace Bunny

  • Chorus: (singing) North of the island, there lives a dear old animal, a little bunny, Ace is his name. He's quaint and old fashioned, but careful and wise. His coach is Kitty Pryde 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. Ace, oh Ace. What will become of you? The world's much nicer whenever we see you. Ace, dear Ace. 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 Ace 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 Ace and Kitty were needed right away. Wilhelmina had written to say, could they please come and help right away. Now they're part of his family forever. Ace, oh Ace. Show them what you can do. The world's much nicer whenever we see you. Ace, dear Ace. There's so much to learn from you. Oldies but goldies, we still care about you. Oldies but goldies, we still care for you.

Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover

  • Chorus: (singing) Ash first saw Freakazoid plowing in a field one day and he said, "Oh, golly gee, you do look strange. Where are your legs, where the heck are your legs? How ever do you move along? You really do look funny." "Don't be so rude", said Freakzoid "I don't have legs like you Because my caterpillar tracks are so much better. And I can go anywhere, anywhere, anywhere I don't need rails like you. One day I will prove it, show you how I do it Then you will understand... That you don't judge a book by its cover Don't make your mind up too soon Things aren't necessarily Always what they appear to be Don't judge a book by its cover Don't make your mind up too soon Never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never Never judge a book by its cover Sure enough, one winter's day When the snow lay deep and hard Ash got stuck, he was in trouble And who do you think came along, came along And rescued him that day The snow didn't matter to Freakazoid Now Ash understands... That you don't judge a book by its cover Don't make your mind up too soon Things aren't necessarily Always what they appear to be Don't judge a book by its cover Don't make your mind up too soon Never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never Never judge a book by its cover. Don't judge a book by its cover Don't make your mind up too soon Things aren't necessarily Always what they appear to be. Don't judge a book by its cover Just remember the rule Never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never Never judge a book.... By its cover!

Night Route

  • Children: (singing) See how the night sky glows, See the light from the night route, The fire glow from the night route. On down the line he blows... Woooooo-oooooo!!! On down the line he blows. All through the night he goes. Hear the sound of the night route, The chugga-chug-chugg of the night route. Hear how his horn blows... Woooooo-oooooo!!! Hear how his horn blows. Pulling, heaving, big engine breathing. Pistons pushing side by side. Driver checking, gauging, peering, Fireman stoking by his side. On down the line they go. Fast track for the mail route, Clear away for the post route. Non-stop all night they go... Woooooo-oooooo!!! Non-stop all night they go. See how the night sky glows. Clear ahead for the night route, Green light for the night train. On down the track he blows... Woooooo-oooooo!!! On down the track he blows. Dawn is breaking, sleepy town waking. Children waving, watch him go. Freight trains, milk trains, Boat trains waiting, Stand aside to let him go. There in the morning glow The sunlight on the night route, Silhouettes the night train. On down the line he blows... Woooooo-oooooo!!! There in the morning glow. On down the line he blows Hear the sound of the night route, The chugga-chug-chugg of the night route. Hear how his horn blows... Woooooo-oooooo!!! Hear how his horn blows. On down the line he blows, On down the line he blows.

Accidents Will Happen

  • Children: (singing) Thrills and spills on the railway, it's a life of happiness. But sometimes impatience can lead to carelessness.
  • Boy: (singing) Some think they are smart cats...
  • Girl: (singing) ...and some just know it all.
  • Children: (singing) But sooner or later we all find out that... Accidents happen now and again. Just when you least expect. Just when you think that life is okay, fate comes to collect. Accidents happen now and again, when people or trains get smart. If you don't concentrate on the thing that you're doing. Accidents will happen just like that. Your best laid plans can turn upside down if you get to confident. Sometime you will slip and slide if that Lady Luck's intent.
  • Girl: (singing) One minute you're riding high...
  • Boy: (singing) ...the next you're on the ground.

Cause if you don't concentrate on the thing that you're doing. Accidents will happen just like that. The warning signs are there for us to see most of the time. But sometimes we take chances, ignore the danger signs. Fate can surprise with no reason or rhyme. Make sure you'll learn your lesson. You'll know better next time. Accidents happen now and again. Just when you least expect. Just when you think that life is okay. Fate comes to collect. Accidents happen now and again, when people or trains get smart, if you don't concentrate on the thing that you're doing. Accidents will happen just like that. Accidents happen now and again. Sometimes just by chance. You gotta pick yourself up and dust yourself down put it down to experience. Accidents happen now and again, just don't take it all to heart.
  • Girl: If you don't concentrate on the thing that you're doing whatever you're doing is not what you're thinking.
  • Children: (singing) Accidents, incidents. Accidents, incidents, accidents happen just like that.

Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining (Bumpty and Raphael's Song)

  • Children: (singing) Life is full of surprises, full of ups and downs And so to have a silver lining, first there must be cloud. Bumpty and Raphael the twins work together all day long. They sometimes disagree how things are done. They get down in the dumps If things they do don't work out just as planned. But if at first you don't succeed then understand. There's no sense in worrying if things start going wrong. Obstacles can all be overcome. But even Bumpty and Raphael both agree that in the end. If you never lose hope, you're sure to cope and carry on. Every cloud is silver-lined, even when it rains. So don't get too downhearted, as things are bound to change. All you've gotta do is wear a smile and you will find. Your sun will shine. So if you've got a job to do, make sure you do it well. Arguing will get you nowhere fast. When Bumpty says "Push", and Raphael says "Pull", They always get it wrong. But never lose hope, you're sure to cope and carry on. Every cloud is silver-lined, even when it rains. So don't get too downhearted, as things are bound to change. All you've gotta do is wear a smile and you will find. Your sun will shine. Everybody makes mistakes it happens all the time. You should never lose sight of your goal. Just like Bumpty and Raphael things will work out in the end. If you never lose hope, you're sure to cope and carry on. When you're feeling down it doesn't help to wear a frown. Never lose hope, you're sure to cope and you can carry on. Every cloud is silver-lined to help you on your way. As long as there's hope, it'll help you cope. You must never lose hope, it'll help you on the way.
