Habitat


With a tap, tap, tap, and a good strong back,
Stir the adrenalin, steel and bricks,
Gonna' build and fix,
A new home we'll begin.

With a tap, tap, tap, brand new habitat,
Sweat drippin' off our chin,
Side by side, gonna' work with pride,
Then stand back and grin!

A floor and a door, and lots, lots more,
Put a lovely window in.
Brush with paint, you'll become a saint,
See where you have been.

Another little house, a sturdy little house,
Move an eager family in,
With a tap, tap, tap, on the map, map, map,
Time to start again!

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
