Let's have a race
(Mike O'Donnel/Junior Campbell)
lesson that's worth learning . . . one you never should forget
Is the art of friendly rivalry
It's not always about winning
You must learn that from the start
Enjoy yourself . . . remember . . . what counts is taking part
Let's have a race . . . have a race . . . have a race
Let's see who is the quickest
Who can be the fastest
On your marks now . . . get set . . . go!
Let's set a pace . . . set a pace . . . set a pace
Let's see if you can catch me
Let's see if you can match me . . . so . . .
Let's have a race . . . have a race
challenged Bertie . . . to a friendly race one day
Their drivers said, "Get ready,
But be careful on the way"
The friends lined up together . . . enjoying the fun
The stationmaster called out "Are you ready to begin?"
bus was winning . . . he sped along the way
Thomas tried so hard . . . to catch up on the way
Eventually he passed him . . . and Bertie had to say
"To pass you on that hill, Thomas,
I'd need wings like an airplane."
