“Man goes out to his work
And to his labor until the evening (Psalm 104:23 NKJV).”

Remember this ditty?

I’ve Been Working on the Railroad (author unknown)

“I’ve been workin’ on the railroad,
All the live long day.
I’ve been workin’ on the railroad,
Just to pass the time away.
Don’t you hear the whistle blowing?
Rise up so early in the morn.
Don’t you hear the captain shouting
‘Dinah, blow your horn?’

Dinah, won’t you blow, Dinah, won’t you blow,
Dinah, won’t you blow your horn?
Dinah, won’t you blow, Dinah, won’t you blow,
Dinah, won’t you blow your horn?

Someone’s in the kitchen with Dinah.
Someone’s in the kitchen, I know.
Someone’s in the kitchen with Dinah
Strumming on the old banjo.

Fee, fie, fiddle-e-i-o.
Fee, fie, fiddle-e-i-o-o-o-o.
Fee, fie, fiddle-e-i-o.
Strumming on the old banjo.”

Happy Labor Day!
