Adventurers & Tinkerers

Adventurers and Tinkerers

Chorus

Adventurers and tinkerers
Built our wondrous nation;
Then rent-seekers and ol’ fat cat
Reduced all to stagnation.

While those who risk, they may well lose;
But, some of us will gain.
There’s no way we may safely snooze,
Nor live free of all pain.

Chorus

Adventurers they crossed the earth
Seeking markets out,
Latching on to things of worth
And not held back by doubt.

Chorus

Through trial and error things get made,
Each novel new creation;
This is a spur to brand new trade
And needs no explanation.

Chorus

But how great tides they ebb and flow,
For tides we know must turn;
For fortune can both come then go,
Where folk they do not learn.

Chorus
