I want a good deal
Better if it's free
But I charge a lot
Want more money
Don't want to work
Just want more pay
Cut corners here
Make more that way

(meanwhile...)

I work in a large room
(I work in a room that's large and bare)
I'm at this workbench every day
(I never miss a day)
I keep my tools very organized
(I have a special place
For all my tools)
This tinny radio is all I play
(I love music)

I'm working on this new invention
(and I'm really, really excited about it)
I think it needs something extra here
(in the evenings I read tool catalogues)
I'm studying the grain of my workbench
(I can fix anything you like)
I'm humming a tune while I wait
For the answer to appear

When I get stuck I go fishing
Put in the clutch so to speak and glide
I coast among the rabble
And the right words
In my work I take great pride

(meanwhile)

I need more things
I need more money
Don't want to work
Want things for free
Cut corners here
Make more that way
I have no pride
The world is unfair
Wah...

My shop is a long meadow
In a winding landscape
In a series of elevations
With a few cows
And a babbling brook

I love to do what I love to do
This excludes anything I don't like to do
The pleasure is in the peace of mind
The pleasure is mine
Mein bitte...

Mein bitte: to me it means "my pleasure/what makes one tick
