The Happy Worker lyrics

Laughing like smoke from the flickery chimneys.
Marching to the beat in a heart within me.
Heigh ho, heigh ho, we're off to work again.
Bells are ringing, we are singing, joyous in our industry.

I love my job. He loves his job. Pull that lever.
Start the engine. Pump the water. Build the pressure.
Push the piston. Press the button. Pump the water.
Build the pressure. Push the piston. Press the button.
It's the perfect job.


Happy workers. Happy workers, yes.
Happy workers. Hee, happy workers.


Mmm... I love my job. (Oh...) He loves his job. (Oh...)
Pull that lever. (Oh...) Start the engine. (Oh...)
Pump the water. Build the pressure. Push the piston.
Press the button. Pump the water. Build the pressure.
Push the piston. Press that button. Pump the water.
Build the pressure. Push the piston. Press that button.
It's the perfect job.


Happy workers, yeah happy workers, yeah.
Happy workers, yeah. Happy workers.


I love my job. (Mmm...) Oh, he loves his job. (Mmm...)
Pull that lever. (Mmm...) Sister, start the engine. (Mmm...)
P-pu-pump the water, yeah...
Ooh yes. Oh no, build the pressure, oh yes...
Pump the water. Build the pressure.
Push the button. (Push the piston.)
Oh no, yeah... (Push the button.)
It's the perfect job.


Aah... Aah... Aah... Aah...
Aah... Aah... Aah... Aah...
Aah... Aah... Aah... Aah...
Aah... Aah... Umm...


Happy workers, yeah. Happy Workers, yeah.
Happy workers, yeah. Happy workers.


I love my job. (Mmm...) Oh... he loves his job. (Mmm...)
Pull that lever. (Mmm...) Oh... Sister, start the engine. (Mmm...) Oh...
P-pum-pump the water, yeah...
Ooh yes. Build the pressure. Oh yes...
(Pump the water. Build the pressure.)
Push the piston. Push the button.
Pump the water. Build the pressure.
Push the button. (Push the piston.)
Oh no, yeah... (Push the button.)
It's a perfect job.
