(4/4 time. 5 bar intro)

(chorus)

Bricks and mortar and wet plaster

Slap it on and smooth it down.

Hammer nails in, firm and solid

Making sure it won't fall down.

We are builders, building houses

We take pride in what we do.

We work hard from morn 'til evening

Working hard the whole day through.

Bricks and mortar and wet plaster

Slap it on and smooth it down.

Hammer nails in, firm and solid

Making sure it won't fall down.

There's the foreman, Mister higgins

He's the one what makes the tea.

Fred and tom and joe and albert, 

They would never work for free.

Bricks and mortar and wet plaster

Slap it on and smooth it down.

Hammer nails in, firm and solid

Making sure it won't fall down.

Bricks and mortar and wet plaster

Slap it on and smooth it down.

Hammer nails in, firm and solid

Making sure it won't fall down.
