The Lyrics

Building a house is hard but rewarding, especially when you have got a good ladder.
Oh ah,
Oh.

The work day starts
At first light.
I came in by car,
Not by push bike.
I'm roofing today,
The ce-ment is laid,
It's already paved.

There's no Cuprinol,
So we slated,
I'm searching below,
For my tool kit.
My name's on the lid,
The font is quite big.
I don't want to quit.

There's no buttress,
Our work song is sung
With the best crew,
Where's the wood
I need to drill through,
Now shift that ladder
We need to shift that ladder
We need to shift that ladder.

I've got so much roofing to get through,
No, I don't want a lunch-break thank you.
Need to shift that ladder,
We need to shift that ladder.
We need to shift that ladder.

It says on my card,
That my name's Mike,
This project is hard,
It's a delight;
The coffee is free,
Some cake please.
I'd rather have tea.

Oh!
They need some more tar.
I can't find it.
We done the front,
Do you like it?
We need to cheer,
But I'm in tears,
We deserve beer.
There's no buttress,
I'm on the first run,
I need that screw,
Where's the wood
I need to drill through,
Now shift that ladder
We need to shift that ladder
We need to shift that ladder.

I've got so much roofing to get through,
No, I don't want a lunch-break thank you.
need to shift that ladder,
We need to shift that ladder.
We need to shift that ladder.

The family'll be back
In a little while.
Some Cuprinol,
That looks right.
It was hard to be discrete,
But we had to do it,
I really hope they like it.

Just one more turn,
pass me that vice.
I need to know,
It's nice and tight.
I have shared my tool kit,
And no you cannot keep it.
Everybody needs this.
(Aaah.)

And I think it fits,

I'm almost done,
let me show you,
Any other wood
I need to drill through?
Now shift that ladder
We need to shift that ladder
We need to shift that ladder.

(Woooo!)

I've been working all day through,
Look at this roof I have made for you.
Now take down the ladder,
Now take down the ladder,
Now take down the ladder.
