Song 1
Work all day, work is play.
Dig and scoop, every day.
Lift and load, it’s my job.
We must clear the site and move the rocks out of the way!
Song 2
It’s time to dig, dig, dig a big hole.
We need to drop the blue pipe in!
We need to connect it so the water flows, to all of the homes.
Song 3
Stack the bricks, row by row, one by one,
Lay the rows out straight.
It’s so fun, look at all the progress we’ve made,
It’s a job well done!
Song 4
Working on construction sites, I like to lift heavy things.
I’ll lift the pile of wood, And move it out of the way.
Song 5
What a surprise!
We’ve just discovered some gold.
Big bars of precious gold, What an amazing day!

Song 6
Come along and count on me.
You can practice counting too, 1,2,3.
Come along and count with me, 1,2,3.
Numbers can be so much fun, Won’t you count along with me.
Song 7
I love digging and digging.
Each and every day.
I love digging and digging.
I’ll work hard all day long.

You answered all the questions.
