All Work Together

  • All Work Together

    Words and Music by Woody Guthrie, 1946

     

    My mommy told me an' the teacher told me, too,

    There's all kinds of work that I can do: 

    Dry my dishes, sweep my floor, 

    But if we all work together it won't take very long.

     

    We all work together with a wiggle and a giggle, 

    We all work together with a giggle and a grin. 

    We all work together with a wiggle and a giggle, 

    We all work together with a giggle and a grin.

     

    My sister told me, 

    Brother told me, too, 

    Lots an' lotsa work 

    That I can do. 

    I can bring her candy.

    Bring him gum. 

    But if we all work together 

    Hadn't oughtta take long. So

     

    My daddy said,

    And my grandpaw, too,

    There's work, worka, work

    For me to do. 

    I can paint my fence.

    Mow my lawn.

    But if we all work together,

    Well, it shouldn't take long. So

     

    I tell Mama an' Daddy,

    Grampaw an' Granmaw, too,

    I tell my sister an' my brother,

    Lotsa work for you to do.

    You can bring me pennie

    And candy and gum;

    But if we all work together

    'Twon't take so very long. And so

     

    We all work together with a wiggle and a giggle, 

    We all work together with a giggle and a grin. 

    We all work together with a wiggle and a giggle, 

    We all work together with a giggle and a grin.

    With a wiggle and a giggle and a google and a goggle

    And a jigger and a jagger and a giggle and a grin.
