  • Inventing Is such Fun

Inventing is such fun
In fact that’s number one on our list
Give that dial a twist ha ha!
Inventing is so great
Who know what you’ll create if you try.
Put that out to dry
We don’t always know what we’ve made
But inventing gizmos ha ha is a lovely trade
Oh I’m impressed with us
Wait are you sure that’s right?
Oh oh ha ha ha
It’s creating something no one else has done
It’s a gas, oh it’s a blast
Inventing, inventing, inventing is such fun!
Oh I love it, I love it, I love it
