Carpenter – Rhymes on Profession
Carpenters are the craftiest of the lot! They can carve anything out of wood! Doors, windows, cabinets, spoons, ladles, you name it! There are so many things that they can make. Listen to this song, to know more about what else they make!
I work with wood, at it, I’m very good.
A carpenter is what I am.
I make toys, for little girls and boys,
Also blocks, bats, tops and prams.
Vessels and ladles, cots and cradles,
Cupboards, tables, rocking chairs,
Houses, handicrafts, also boats and rafts,
Doors, windows, floors and stairs!
Hammers and saws,chisels and awls,
Are some tools that I use.
I cut andscrape,to get the right shape,
And join parts with glue,nails and screws!
Teak and redwood, maple and rosewood,
Fir, cherry, oak and pine,
The timber of these, I use with much ease,
As it is so very fine!
Hooks for wall clocks; doorstops and locks,
I fit these for you.
I’m so skilled, there’s nothing I can’t build.
I repair broken things too!
For every tree cut down, in a forest or town,
Let us grow many more trees,
To save the earth, and life in this world,
To save animals, birds and bees!
