Transcript

Ringo Starr US version

  • Ringo Starr: Gordon was resting in a siding. Sometimes he thought...
  • Gordon: It's really tiring to be such a large and splendid engine, one does have to keep up appearance is so.
  • Henry: Peep peep peep peep! Hello, lazybones!
  • Ringo Starr: Whistled Henry.
  • Gordon: What cheek!
  • Ringo Starr: Spluttered Gordon.
  • Gordon: That Henry is too big for his wheels. Fancy speaking to me like that. Me who has never had an accident.
  • Percy: Aren't jammed whistles and burst safety valves accidents?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Percy innocently.
  • Gordon: No indeed. High spirits. Might happen to any engine. But to come off the rails like Henry did. Well, I ask you. Is that right? Is it decent?
  • Ringo Starr: Then it was Henry's turn to take the express. Gordon watch him getting ready.
  • Gordon: Be careful, Henry. You're not pulling the Flying Kipper now. Mind you keep on the rails today.
  • Ringo Starr: Henry went off in a huff, and Gordon yawned and went to sleep. But not for long.
  • Driver: Wake up, Gordon.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver.
  • Driver: A special train's coming and we're to pull it.
  • Gordon: Is it coaches or freight cars?
  • Driver: Cars.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver.
  • Gordon: Cars.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: Puh.
  • Ringo Starr: Gordon's fire was slow to start, so Edward had to push Gordon to the turntable to get him facing the right way.
  • Gordon: I won't go, I won't go!
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled Gordon.
  • Edward: Don't be silly, don't be silly.
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Edward. At last, Gordon was on the turntable. The movement had shaken his fire. It was now burning nicely and making steam. Gordon was cross and didn't care what he did. He waited till the table was halfway round.
  • Gordon: I'll show them, I'll show them.
  • Ringo Starr: He hissed. He moved slowly forward to jam the table, but he couldn't stop himself and slithered into the ditch.
  • Gordon: Oosh!
  • Ringo Starr: He hissed.
  • Gordon: Get me out, get me out!
  • Driver: Not a hope.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver and fireman.
  • Fireman: You're stuck, you silly great engine. Don't you understand that?
  • Ringo Starr: They telephoned Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: So Gordon didn't want to take the special train and ran into a ditch? What's that you say? The special's waiting? Tell Edward to take it please. And Gordon? Oh, leave him where his is. We'll get him out later.
  • Ringo Starr: On the other side of the ditch, some little boys were chattering.
  • Boy 1: Coo, doesn't he look silly?
  • Boy 2: They'll never get him out.
  • Ringo Starr: They began to sing.
  • Boys: Silly old Gordon fell in a ditch, fell in a ditch, fell in a ditch, silly old Gordon fell in a ditch all in the Monday morning.
  • Ringo Starr: Gordon lay in the ditch all day.
  • Gordon: Oh, dear.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought.
  • Gordon: I shall never get out.
  • Ringo Starr: But that evening, they lifted Gordon and made a rope of sleepers under his wheels to keep him from the mud. Strong ropes were fastened to his back end, and James and Henry pulling hard, managed to bring him to safety.
  • (Gordon is pulled to safety, we show a close up of his wheels, and finally a shot of him on the turntable)
  • Ringo Starr: Late that night, Gordon crawled home, a sadder and wiser engine.
