Time for sleeping no more, I fall the floor
Step out the door, wave at my neighbour
How I'd love to unwind, seems I've rarely the time
To indulge in the fruits of my labour
Sun beats down on my red head
I reach for a drink that is fizzy
They say the devil will find work for idle hands to do
So its lucky I am always so busy

My job is big
Big like Galactus
Big like the wheels on some tractors
Big like the heads on some actors
Big like the halls of St Paul's
Or the balls on them Gauls that had brawls
I recall that I'm small
Small like a kitten
Small like a one year old's mitten
Smaller than all that's been written
On stamps
In Britain
Or France
Like the tiniest cog
I am doing a very big job

Yes indeed
So, once I've dug up the weeds
I proceed to sew seeds
I concede: my work's important
From winter to autumn, days lengthen and shorted
But I solider on
It has always been thus, I'll be here when you're gone
and I'm sorry that there's not a moment to spare
But I'm doing a very big job

My job is big!
Big like a rhino
Big like the thirst on a wino
Big like this fat lady I know
Big like the great wall of China
The great falls Niagara
Viagra wont help me
I'm small
Small like a minnow
Small like the teeth 'neath a pillow
Small like the nuts of a squirrel
Smaller than beanstalks are tall
Getting closer to God
Cos I'm doing a very big job
