I sing the lives of working men
And working women too
A song of celebration for
The many things they do

The steel, the saw
The plow, the plane
The pencil and the chalk
The resolute commuter
And the lucky few who walk
The drill, the wrench
The brush, the broom
The ruler and the rake
The fairly few who conjure
And the many hands that make

The brew, the bread
The rock, the brick
The mortar and the mix
The powerful who fashion
And the delicate who fix

The shovel and the hammer
The keyboard and the mouse
And even those who labor
In the Senate and the House

I sing them all
A chorus hall
In harmony and unity
May God grant each
And every one
A little opportunity
