lyrics

While the rust is working on the iron, the iron is working on the rust.
And while they're working in the bullpen, the bubble's working on the bust.

You're sure to find a piece of mirth from time to time,
but mostly there is work.
And if it keeps you occupied, that's as close to satisfied as humps like us deserve.

Behind that pushbroom, there's not much headroom.
Boardroom to bedroom, sir, one thing's for sure:
brother, it's all work.

The leaden march, the yawning grave. The leaden march, the yawning grave. The leaden march.
The yawning grave is not the end.
Carbon and nitrogen.
I'm turning matter into energy,
so, sweetheart, don't you cry for me.

The measure of my worth --
lord, I'll keep working underneath the earth.
I am the engine and the factory,
so, sweetheart, don't you cry for me.
Don't you cry for me, now, baby.

Underneath the elms,
I am the cargo and the heaving helm.
I am the atom and the cyclotron.
Long gone and burning on.

This is the work.
This is the work.
This is the work.
Now, don't you love the work?
