Carpenter, Carpenter – (from THE FROGS WORE RED SUSPENDERS)

Carpenter, carpenter, build us a house,

A sweet little house for a mouse and a spouse,

A mouse and a spouse and a family too,

We know that you can, and we hope that you do.

 

Build it of brick so it’s cozy and warm,

To keep us from harm in a cold winter storm.

As soon as you finish, we’ll pay you with cheese,

Carpenter, carpenter, build our house, please.
