COMPANY
Streams are flowing ?
See what's coming
Next!

Winds are blowing ?
See what's coming,
See what's going
Next!

Roads are turning,
Journey with them.
A little learning
Next!

Waters churning,
Lightning flashes,
Kings are burning,
Sift the ashes
Next!

Tower tumbles,
Tower rises
Next!

Tower crumbles,
Man revises.
Motor rumbles,
Civilizes.
More surprises
Next!

Learn the lesson
From the master.
Add the sugar,
Spread the plaster.
Do it nicer,
Do it faster
Next!

RECITER
The practical bird,
Having no tree of its own,
Borrows another's.

COMPANY
Streams are roaring,
Overspilling
Next!
Old is boring,
New is thrilling,
Keep exploring
Next!
First the thunder
Just a murmur
A little blunder
Next!
Then the wonder,
See how pretty!
(Going under What a pity!)
Next!

Streams are flying,
Use the motion
Next!
Streams are dying,
Mix a potion.
Streams are dying,
Try the ocean
Brilliant notion
Next!

Never mind a small disaster.
Who's the stronger, who's the faster?
Let the pupil show the master
Next!
Next!

Make the motions,
Keep it moving
Next!
