LyricsEdit

A 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

CHORUS:

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
Wilson challenged Koko
To a friendly race one day
The driver 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

CHORUS:

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
Koko train was winning
She sped along the way
Wilson tried so hard
To catch up on the way
Eventually he passed her
And Koko had to say
To pass you on that hill Wilson
I'd need wings like an aeroplane

CHORUS:

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

CHORUS:

Let's have a race, have a race, have a race
Let's see who is the quickest
Who can be the fastest
Ready, 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
Let's have a race
Let's have a race
Right now
