"The Happy Worker" as written by Bruce Woolley and Trevor Charles Horn....
Laughing out the smoke from a factory chimney
Marching to the beat of a heart within me
High ho hey ho 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
A 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, yes
Happy workers, happy workers

I love my job, he loves his job
Pull that lever, start the engine
A 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, happy workers

I love my job, oh he loves his job
Pull the lever, sister, start the engine
Pump, pump the water yeah ooh yeah
Press, oh yeah, build the pressure, oh yehs
Pump the water, build the pressure, push the button oh yeah
It's the perfect job

Happy workers, happy workers
Happy workers, happy workers

I love my job, oh he loves his job
Pull the lever, sister, start the engine
Pump, pump the water yeah ooh yeah
Press, oh yeah, build the pressure, oh yehs
Pump the water, build the pressure, push the button oh yeah
It's the perfect job

    General Commentthe lyrics here are a bit messed up -
    anyway - what I LOVE about this song is Tori's dry cynical delivery of the lyrics which makes me think she's being sarcastic and the job is not, in fact, a joyous one afterall. As the music builds, by the end it actually sounds military (which ingeniusly ties in with the film's narrative) and the happy factory sounds more like a war camp.

    General CommentThis song is great. It's from the Toys soundtrack, and it was written for the movie I think (and not by Amos). It means... it's a great job, and people like it.
