The Fireman Sam Theme is the song that plays in the beginning of every episode. There are different lyrics throughout the series. The original theme was sung by Maldwyn Pope and the New Series theme was sung by Cameron Stewart

Original Series Lyrics

When he hears the fire bell chime,
Fireman Sam is there on time.
Putting on his coat and hat
In less than seven seconds flat.

He's always on the scene, Fireman Sam!
And his engine's bright and clean, Fireman Sam!
You cannot ignore,
Sam is the hero next door!

Gliding down the busy streets,
Greeting people that he meets.
Someone could be in a jam
So hurry, hurry, Fireman Sam.

He's always on the scene, Fireman Sam!
And his engine's bright and clean, Fireman Sam!
You cannot ignore,
Sam is the hero next door!

Ending Theme

When he hears the fire bell chime,
Fireman Sam is there on time.
Someone might be in a jam
So hurry, hurry, Fireman Sam.

He's always on the scene, Fireman Sam!
And his engine's bright and clean, Fireman Sam!
You cannot ignore,
Sam is the hero next door!

Full Theme Lyrics

When he hears that fire-bell chime,
Fireman Sam is there on time.
Putting on his coat and hat,
In less than seven seconds flat.

He's always on the scene.
Fireman Sam!
And his engine's bright and clean.
Fireman Sam!
You cannot ignore,
Sam is the hero next door.

Driving down the busy streets,
Greeting people that he meets.
Someone could be in a jam,
So, hurry hurry Fireman Sam.

So move aside, make way.
Fireman Sam!
'Cos he's gonna save the day.
Fireman Sam!
He's the one we adore.
Sam is the hero next door.

When he's fighting fires,
He's always cool and calm.
And everyone admires,
When there's a fire alarm.
The way he never tires,
He always sees it through
And that's true.
Hey!

So move aside, make way.
Fireman Sam!
'Cos he's gonna save the day.
Fireman Sam!
He's the one we adore.
Sam is the hero next door.

If your kite's caught in a tree,
Sam will climb and set it free.
If you're stuck give him a shout.
Sam will always help you out.

Hooray for Fireman Sam!
He's always brave and strong.
Hooray for Fireman Sam!
And when there's something wrong.
He'll always be along
To help both you and me
Don't you see.

He's always on the scene.
Fireman Sam!
And his engine's bright and clean.
Fireman Sam!
You cannot ignore,
Sam is the hero next door.

Everybody knows
Fireman Sam.
Dressed in his fireman's clothes.
Fireman Sam!
Well, we've seen him before.
Sam is the hero next door.

So move aside, make way.
Fireman Sam!
'Cos he's gonna save the day.
Fireman Sam!
He's the one we adore.
Sam is the hero next door.

He's always on the scene.
Fireman Sam!
And his engine's always bright and clean.
Fireman Sam!
You cannot ignore,
Sam is the hero next door.

Come on, Sam!

Fireman Sam!

2005 & Movie Lyrics

When he hears that fire alarm,
Sam is always cool and calm.
If you're stuck, give him a shout,
He'll be there to help you out.

So move aside make way, for Fireman Sam!
'cause he's gonna save the day, Fireman Sam.
'cause he's brave to the core,
Sam is the hero next door!

If there's trouble he'll be there
Underground or in the air!
Fireman Sam and all the crew,
They'll be there to rescue you,

So move aside make way, for Fireman Sam!
'cause he's gonna save the day, Fireman Sam!
'cause he's brave to the core.
Sam is the hero next door!

2008-Present Lyrics

When he hears that fire alarm,
Sam is always cool and calm.
If you're stuck, give him a shout,
He'll be there to help you out.

So move aside make way, for Fireman Sam!
'cause he's gonna save the day, Fireman Sam.
'cause he's brave to the core,
Sam is the hero next door!

Trivia

  • The CGI series is shortened to 30 seconds, except at the beginnings of The Great Fire of Pontypandy and Heroes of the Storm, where the full version of the new theme song, as heard in Series 5, is used.
  • The Polish version of the original theme is played in a completely different arrangement, with the singer out of sync with the music.
  • The British music duo Pound Shop Boys did a cover of the Fireman Sam theme in 2017 which combines the lyrics of the original Series 1-4 theme and the Series 5/Movie theme.
  • One of the Persian Series 5 dubs actually uses the theme from the Mickey Mouse Club TV series, with all the sound effects replaced as a result, but surprisingly Disney did seemingly nothing to stop them from using it. It appears however that it was later correctly redubbed with the actual Series 5 theme.

Goofs

  • In the first CGI intro (Series 6-7) when Sam, Elvis, and Radar leave with Jupiter, we can't see Penny's helmet though she didn't go to an emergency. This got corrected in the Series 8-9 intro.
  • In the Series 5 intro as Sam is driving Jupiter down the main street of Pontypandy during the line "...Fireman Sam! 'Cause he's gonna save the day!...", if one looks closely it can be seen that Jupiter's lights do not flash at the correct rate near the end of the shot.
