Henry Ford lyrics

Henry Ford

FORD:
See my people?
Well, here's my theory
Of what this country
Is moving toward.
Every worker
A cog in motion.
Well, that's the notion of
Henry Ford!

One man tightens
And one man ratchets
And one man reaches
To pull one cord.
Car keeps moving
In one direction.

ENSEMBLE:
A genuflection to
Henry Ford!
Hallelujah!
Praise the maker
Of the Model T!

FORD:
Speed up the belt.
Speed up the belt, Sam.

ENSEMBLE:
Hallelujah!

COALHOUSE:
Hell, I'll take her!

ENSEMBLE:
Sure amazin'
How far some fellas can see!

FORD:
Speed up the belt.
Speed up the belt, Sam.
Speed up the belt.
Speed up the belt, Sam!

ENSEMBLE & FORD:
Speed up the, speed up the, speed up the speed up the belt!

ENSEMBLE:
Mass production
Will sweep the nation.
A simple notion,
The world's reward.

FORD:
Even people who ain't too clever
Can learn to tighten a nut forever,
Attach one pedal
Or pull one lever

ENSEMBLE:
For Henry Ford!
Henry Ford!
Henry Ford!
Henry Ford!

FORD:
Grab yor goggles

ENSEMBLE & FORD:
And climb aboard!

COALHOUSE:
I'm ready, Lord!
