OH! THE LIFE OF AN ENGINEER


| May/June 1960

When we were kids, we'd peek inside
At the engine with some fear;
And watch the wheels go round and
round
Oh, the life of an Engineer.

The piston moving back and forth, 
The governor and its gear
How often you have said these words -
Oh, the life of an Engineer.

But little did you realize
What went with that career
For if you did, you wouldn't say --
Oh! The life of an Engineer.

When other folks have went to bed
To pound a weary ear
He's leaving home to go to work --
Oh! The life of an Engineer!



He oils 'er up, she's running fine
So good he'd like to cheer
The fireman yells the water's gone --
Oh! The life of an Engineer!

Holidays or Sundays, all are the same
On the job he must appear
He's working while you're having fun
Oh! The life of an Engineer!
