The Scissor-Man by Madeleine Nightingale

SING a song of Scissor-men,
Mend a broken plate,
Bring your knives and garden shears,
Will do them while you wait.
Buzz-a-wuzz! Buzz-a-wuzz!
Fast the wheel or slow.
Ticker Tacker! Ticker Tack!
Rivets in a row.

Sing a song of Scissor-men,
Sitting in the sun.
Sing it when the day begins.
Sing it when it’s done.
Be it hard or be it soft.
Here’s a jolly plan;
Sing to make the work go well,
Like the Scissor-man.
