This here's a story about paper makin'
And this little class that I've been takin'
We make paper but not out of trees
We use old rags and dungerees
How do we do it?
First we cut 'em into pieces that are kind of small
Then we put 'em in a beater than beats 'em all
Turns 'em into pulp that is kinda like soup
Then we pour it into buckets and we stir up the goop
Sounds fun, right?
Then we take a wooden frame and we dip it in the mix
And we shake out the water, that's how we get our kicks
Then we open up the frame and slap it on the tray
First I had a little trouble, but, it turned out okay
Not as easy as it looks
Then we stack it in a press
And we tighten the screws
This flattens the paper
And the water gets excused
We open up the press
Take our paper off the pile
And we stick it on the window (sounds like "winda")
And we leave it there a while
Paper's dryin' now
The pink one's mine
We take our paper off the window once it's good and dry
This takes a little doing
Oh, and by the by
See the different colors
Reds, yellows and greens?
Remember these were rags once
And old blue jeans
Really kind of amazin'
Well, now our paper makin' day is done
Hope you liked it, we had fun
If you ever get the chance
You should give it a try
But now we gotta go
So we're gonna say "good-bye"
