THE SCISSOR-MAN by Madeleine Nightingale










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.
