Percy's Seaside Trip is a song from the fifth season dedicated to Percy taking passengers to the seaside. The tune is based on his theme.


The sun is shining, it's a lovely day.
It won't be long before we're on our way.
The guard is waiting, flag in hand.
He blows his whistle, we're off to sea and sand.
The sky is blue, there's not a cloud in sight,
So much excitement, didn't sleep all night.
Now Percy's rushing trough the countryside,
With people waving as we (peep peep) whistle by.

Seaside, we're off to the seaside.
Ice cream in cones,
Candy floss on your nose.
Seaside, we're off to the seaside,
We're gonna have a lovely day.

Just one more hill to climb and we'll be there.
Sounds of the seaside start to fill the air.
Then someone shouts out excitedly
"Look over there, everybody, I can see the sea!"

Seaside, we're off to the seaside,
Buckets and spades, all the fairground arcades.
Seaside, we're off to the seaside,
We're gonna have a lovely day.

And when it's cold in wintertime,
Still you can be there any time.
Just close your eyes, count 1-2-3,
Dream your dream and once again be by the sea.

Sir Topham Hatt arrives to greet the train.
He is so pleased that Percy's right on time.
So much excitement, so much glee.
We're all together with Percy by the sea.

Seaside, we're all at the seaside,
Building sandcastles with buckets and spades.
Seaside, we're all at the seaside.
Oh, what a lovely, lovely, day.

Seaside, we're all at the seaside,
Picnics and paddling, swimming all day.
Seaside, we're all at the seaside,
Oh, what a lovely, lovely day.

Thank you, Percy, for such a lovely day.
