It's a choo choo with a stunning view
That rivals all the best
But you won't ever see it advertised
It's a simple fact we stay on track
Though sometimes we digress
But that can only happen on the Polar Express

'Cause that's the way things happen
On the Polar Express

Conductor

Lights are gleaming far across the snow
You're not dreaming
May I present the North Pole!
If it's penguins you expect to view
You surely haven't guessed
They all live down at the other end

Conductor and Chorus of Children

With a little luck we'll be on time
There's no need to stress
'Cause that's the way things happen
On the Polar Express
