Tori Amos – The Happy Worker lyrics

Coughing from the smoke of a black roof chimney
Marching to the beat of a hot roof o'er me
Hey, ho, here we go
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
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
Happy workers

I love my job
He loves his job
Pull that lever
Sister, start the engine
Pump the water, yeah
Honey, build the pressure
Pump the water, build the pressure
Push the piston, press the button
It's the perfect job

... It's the perfect job
