"Oh please, don't sell me out", said the man with the hammer,
hammering the anvil
"I've been walking on the road of rocks
and I keep on hammering, Keep on hammering, keep on hammering
hammering the anvil."
"Don't let the sun go down," said the man with the fire, firing the
furnace
"I've been buried in the snow
and I keep on firing, keep on firing,
firing the furnace."
"Don't talk to me", said the man with the chisel, chiseling the
surface
"I've been sleeping far too long,
and I keep on chiseling, keep on chiseling, keep on chiseling
chiseling the surface."
"I don't know what you mean", said the man with the shovel, shoveling
the ashes,
"I've been diggin in the frozen ground,
and I keep on shoveling, keep on shoveling, keep on shoveling,
shoveling the ashes
Chiseling the surface,
Firing the furnace,
Hammering the anvil
Hammering the anvil.
"Oh please, don't sell me out", said the man with the hammer,
hammering the anvil
"I've been walking on the road of rocks,
and I keep on hammering , keep on hammering, keep on hammering,
hammering the anvil."
Shoveling the ashes
Chiseling the surface
Firing the furnace
Hammering the anvil.
Keep it on, keep it on, keep it on!
Hammering the anvil.
