You Have To Learn Your Trade

You have to learn your trade
Everything takes practice
If you want to make the grade
You have to practice practice
Yes you have to learn your job
Not simply turn a knob
You have to practice practice practice

You never learn to feel by wearing gloves
You never learn to smile with just a frown
You never learn to talk by shutting up
Or walk by sitting down

You have to learn your trade
Everything takes practice
When you see what you have made
You'll shout "Look here, the fact is
With a fair amount of practice you can really
Positively learn your trade"
You have to learn your trade
