"The Polar Express" is the theme song of the 2004 film of the same name. It is performed by Tom Hanks (as the conductor) and a chorus of children and plays when the train arrives at the North Pole, as well as during the credits. However, the film version only features the children singing, but the conductor's vocals are heard in the credits version, as well as on the official soundtrack version.

Earlier in the film, the children are singing the song when Hero Boy first gets on the train.

Lyrics

It's a magic carpet on a rail
Never takes a rest
Flying through the mountains
And the snow

Ride for free and join the fun
If you just say yes
'Cause that's the way things happen
On the Polar Express

Woo woo the whistle blows
That's the sound of her singing
Ding ding the bell will ring
Golly look at her go

You wonder if you'll get there
Soon anybody's guess 'cause
That's the way things happen
On the Polar Express

When we get there we'll scream yes
We'll arrive with a bang bang bang
Boom boom boom
Laughing all the way

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
Disgress but that can only happen
On the Polar Express

Hiss hiss the steam hisses
That's the sound of her breathing
Clang clang the boiler bangs
What a wonderful show

With a comfy seat and lots to eat
Boy it's just the best
Wish it wouldn't ever have to end

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

Woo woo the whistle blows
That's the sound of her singing
Ding ding the bell will ring
Golly look at her go

If you want to join us come along
I'll check my manifest
'Cause that's the way things happen
On the Polar Express

When we get there we'll scream yes
We'll arrive with a bang bang bang
Boom boom boom
Laughing all the way

If you want to join us come along
You can be our guest
'Cause that's the way things happen
On the Polar Express
