Book read: Pete the Cat's Train Trip

The Wheels on the Train
The Wheels on the Train go round and round,
Round and round, round and round.
The wheels on the train go round and round.
All through the town.
Additional verses:
The people on the train go bumpety-bump.
The bell on the train goes ding-ding-dong.
The whistle on the train goes whoo whoo whoo.

Little Train Going Down the Track
There's a little red train going down the track
Looking at the wheels go clickety clack
And the train wheels are rolling, rolling, rolling, rolling
And the train wheels are rolling, rolling right along.

There's an engine in the front and a caboose in the back
Look at those wheels go clickety clack
And the train wheels are rolling, rolling, rolling, rolling
And the train wheels are rolling, rolling right along.

The little train goes to the top of the hill,
It goes very slow but it gets there still
It gets to the stop and it goes back down
Look at the wheels go around and around.
And the train wheels are rolling, rolling, rolling, rolling
And the train wheels are rolling, rolling right along.

There's a little red train going down the track
Looking at the wheels go clickety clack
And the train wheels are rolling, rolling, rolling, rolling
And the train wheels are rolling, rolling right along.

This Old Train
(tune: “This Old Man”)
This engine, it is black,
It goes chugging down the track (make chugging motion)
With a chug-chug, toot-toot (pretend to pull train whistle)
Hear the whistle blow
This old train goes chugging home.

See this car, it is white,
It goes chugging out of sight. (make chugging motion)
With a chug-chug, toot-toot (pretend to pull train whistle)
Hear the whistle blow
This old train goes chugging home.

See this car, it is green,
It goes chugging full of steam. (make chugging motion)
With a chug-chug, toot-toot (pretend to pull train whistle)
Hear the whistle blow
This old train goes chugging home.

See this car, it is blue,
It goes chugging right by you. (make chugging motion)
With a chug-chug, toot-toot (pretend to pull train whistle)
Hear the whistle blow
This old train goes chugging home.

See this car, it is pink,
It chugs by quick as a wink. (make chugging motion)
With a chug-chug, toot-toot (pretend to pull train whistle)
Hear the whistle blow
This old train goes chugging home.

This caboose, it is red,
It goes chugging off to bed. (make chugging motion)
With a chug-chug, toot-toot (pretend to pull train whistle)
Hear the whistle blow
This old train goes chugging home.

Here Comes the Choo-Choo Train
This is a choo-choo train, (bend arms at elbows)
Puffing down the track. (rotate forearms in rhythm)
Now it’s going forward, (push arms forward, continue rotating motion)
Now it’s going back. (pull arms back, continue rotating motion)
Now the bell is ringing, (pull bell cord with closed fist)
Now the whistle blows. (hold fist near mouth and blow)
What a lot of noise it makes, (cover ears with hands)
Everywhere it goes! (stretch out arms)
