Laughing at the smoke from the factory chimneys
Marching to the beat of a heart within me
hi-ho, hey-o, 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

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

pump the water
build the pressure
push the piston
press the button

It’s the perfect job

Happy workers
Happy workers, yeah
Happy workers, hee
Happy workers

I love my job
Oh, he loves his job
pull that lever
sister, start the engine
pump, pump the water, yeah
ooh, yes

It’s the perfect job
