"Workshop Song" is a song from Babes in Toyland.

Lyrics

The Children: Painting eyes on funny faces, putting on a smile or a frown.

Mr. Toymaker: Come now, there’s lots of orders coming in.

The Children: Bolting wheels on axel braces so they never will break down.

Mr. Toymaker: Children, we need 600 more of these you know.

The Children: Cutting, sewing, pressing dresses, every little doll gets one. Putting curls in all their tresses, isn’t it a lot of fun?

Mr. Toymaker: Christmas coming.

The Children: Things are humming.

Mr. Toymaker: Busy, busy.

The Children: In a tizzy.

Tom and Mary: Hurry, hurry, hurry, till we’re done.

Tom, Mary, Mr. Toymaker and the children: Hurry, hurry, hurry, till we’re done.

The Children: Gluing legs on chairs and tables, never any less than four.

Mr. Toymaker: Say, you! Please pay attention to your job!

The Children: Cows and goats for tiny stables, put a dozen in or more.

Mr. Toymaker: Willie! This is no time for foolishness!

The Children: Tacking, pounding, fitting, nailing, every little thing must run. Some for flying, some for sailing, isn't it a lot of fun?

Mr. Toymaker: Christmas coming.

The Children: Things are humming.

Mr. Toymaker: Busy, busy.

The Children: In a tizzy.

Tom and Mary: Hurry, hurry, hurry, till we’re done.

Mr. Toymaker: We must not waste an instant.

Tom, Mary, Mr. Toymaker and the children: Hurry, hurry, hurry, till we’re done.

The Children: Quack, quack, quack, quack, chick, chick, chick, chick, teedle-iddle lum tum tum

Mr. Toymaker: Oh, that’s good, we should be happy when we work.

The Children: Boom, boom, boom, boom, tick, tick, tick, tick, teedle-iddle lum tum tum

Mr. Toymaker: Careful! You're gonna shoot him in the head!

The Children: Oink, oink, oink, oink, ding, ding, ding, ding, teedle-iddle lum tum tum.
Bang, bang, bang, bang, bing, bing, bing,
bing, teedle-iddle lum tum tum.
Quack, quack, chick, chick,
boom, boom, tick, tick, oink, oink, ding, ding, bang, bang, bing, bing,
Mr. Toymaker: Tum-tum-tum-tum-tum,
teedle lum tum
la la la la la la
tum tum tum tum tum
teedle lum tum
la la la la la la la la
Tum tum tum tum tum
Teedle lum tum
La la la la la la la la
Tum-tum-tum-tum-tum,…
