The Scissor-Man by Madeleine Nightingale - Funny poem for children

Sing a song of Scissor-men,

Mend a broken plate,

Bring your knives and garden shears,

Will do them while you wait.

Buzz-a-wuzz! Buzz-a-wuzz!

Fast the wheel or slow.

Ticker Tacker! Ticker Tack!

Rivets in a row.

Sing a song of Scissor-men,

Sitting in the sun.

Sing it when the day begins.

Sing it when it's done.

Be it hard or be it soft.

Here's a jolly plan;

Sing to make the work go well,

Like the Scissor-man.
