If there's one thing that I like,
it's riding around on a steam engine
I'm a steam queen, when I once begin.
I took first place back in ninety-six,
I know all the diesel's dirty tricks
I'm a marvel when I'm out to win.
In a fifty mile race I am the best,
I steam five miles and brake the rest.

So come along and see me riding at the Sodor Races
Easier than hop scotch, beating all the railroad aces.
I've been driving all my life, I started from scratch.
I've ridden in the coaches, and on switchers and all.
Hear the people cheer me when they see me chuffing backwards.
Down the hill I go at break-neck speed,
See me coming down the track with the winning post on the cow-catcher.
Oh! Come along and see me riding at the Sodor Race

Come along and see me riding at the Sodor Races
Easier than hop scotch, beating all the railroad aces.
Once my train was hard to climb, but I didn't mind,
Until I found they'd hitched on 20 box cars behind.
Everybody's chatting, when they see a lady driver.
My inside rattles when I go the pace.
My ear begin to flap about, there's all the spare parts sticking out.
So come along and see me riding at the Sodor Race


(Instrumental Break)

With my gears in reverse, facing tender round, I'll finish first,
So, come along and see me riding at the Sodor Race.
A follow on from here; fav.me/dahpe5i with a tribute to :iconeddie-sand: and his Lady & the Tramp Railroad Stories.

I feel that this song wraps up Lady and her career on the Western & Atlantic Railroad.

This song is based on Geroge Formby's song "Riding at the TT Races'' from his movie No Limit; www.dailymotion.com/video/x3sj… (09:20 - 11:40)

Now, I came up with this idea for a story based on the movie back in 2011, before Thomas & Friends went CGI, never mind the Great Railway Show was written down on paper...

NOTE: The icon is from a book cover I created, also back in 2011..
