It is not easy to make furniture pieces. Carpenters and joiners are needed You take a tree trunk first and saw boards, planks long, and short, it depends!.... A workbench fixes them strong, The saw is getting white of work and sawdust - everywhere!
A plane works in another way You have to rough plane first and Wood shave then. When a sphere is to be produced, You need a turn machine. Do not hurry, be patient, a box, or a chair is ready soon.
Carpenter and joiner - that’s OK, But engineer is better, That’s what I’d like to be and be able to build a house, Tell me how! I’ll draw a building I dream of, The front part is called façade, Here is a bathroom, a garden there That’s quite clear!
A layout and planning are ready Hundreds of things for thousands hands Buildings in scaffoldings high up in the sky Scaffolding winch is screeching: Tie-beams are lifted like tiny sticks. Bricks can be carried easily. The roof is tin-plated:
The house is ready yet, Big and nice, Boys and girls will live in it happily!
An engineer has it good, but a doctor- better, I’d like to treat kids, Show me, how to do it! I’ll come to Pete or Poline! Hello! How are you getting on? Stomach ache? Throat ache? Show me your tongues!
Put thermometer under your armpits, And they do it, of course! It would be nice for you to take some powder or mixture A tee-spoon-full And after that go to bed. And I’ll recommend you to apply a compress to your belly, And you’ll recover soon.
But workers are the best! I’d like to be, show me how! Get up and go to work The factory whistle is calling me! Thousands of people and what you alone can’t do, Can we all together! We can cut iron, cat-crane carries heavy loads, sledge hammer bends rails like grass. Tin is melted, machines are driven.
Everyone’s work is needed I make nuts and you- Screws And our product is assembled by other workers. Hey! Screws and nuts! Move yourselves into your holes! Put all parts together!
Smoke –here, thunder – there, The factory is crashing, And soon a steam locomotive For carrying you is ready!
A factory is nice, But in a tram it’s better, I’d like to be a Conductor, show me! Carrying a big bag, he can go as far as… you know and how long …you know
Kids and grown-ups Buy tickets big and small, red and green. We go wherever we want, no rails - get off, have a rest at the fire in the forest.
Being a conductor is OK, but to be a driver – better, I’d like to be a driver, teach me! The car sputters and Goes ahead, a good driver could I be!
Just tell me, where to go – I’ll bring you home. I’ m driving – go away from my way!
A driver is cool, but pilot is better! I ‘d start to fly, show me how! Fill the tank with petrol, Set in the propeller! Go high in the sky, my machine, with birds together, Don't be afraid of rain or hail!
Clouds –Flouts, do not disturb me, I am flying far-far away like a white seagull. Without difficulties I pass high mountains. Go, my machine, fly high up to stars and to the Moon, either they are so far away.
Being a seaman is the best, better than a pilot. Teach me, how to become a seaman! Imagine, I am wearing a peakless hat with searibbons and a seaman uniform with anchor. My ship ploughed the oceans And conquered them.
Don’t roar, waves, yards and masts are my stairs and I go up and down like a cat. Give up, you, stormy wind, give up the gale. I am going to discover the South Pole, and surely the North Pole.
