Excavator

Sing along about the mighty excavator and the superstrong digging jobs he does!
Ever dig a hole with a shovel? Well, here’s a superstrong machine that uses a ginormous shovel with teeth to dig up huge holes and never gets tired. He’s an excavator! He can dig the deepest holes that you’ve ever seen. His boom helps him reach very far below, his shovel scoops out mounds of dirt, and his tracks keep him safe from falling in the deep, deep hole he’s digging. Sing along about the mighty excavator in this music video. The excavator loves to dig. What kind of things do you love to do?

This is the work I really love because that’s what an excavator does.
 I said this is the work I really love because that’s what an excavator does. He’s an excavator. His work is more like fun.
 He digs with his big bucket and works out in the sun. He can dig the deepest holes that you have ever seen.
 Oh, other trucks can dig, oh yes, but not like this machine. (no, not like this machine) This is the work I really love
because that’s what an excavator does.
 I said this is the work I really love
because that’s what an excavator does. See how long his boom is,
reaching far below.
 The tracks that keep him safe from
falling in this deep, deep hole. One of his best talents
is spinning all the way around
in either of both directions.
 His tracks stay firmly on the ground. (his tracks stay firmly on the ground) Excavators are sometimes called diggers. This is because their main job is to dig. Do you see how far down this bucket can go? Other trucks, like front-end loaders, can’t reach their buckets nearly this low. The bucket on both of these kinds of trucks can be called a shovel, just like the shovel you use to dig up dirt and sand. But an excavator’s shovel is huge and very strong. Look at the teeth on this shovel. Some excavators can dig up more than a ton in one scoop of their bucket. This is the work I really love
because that’s what an excavator does.
 I said this is the work I really love
because that’s what an excavator does. After a long day of
hard and dusty, dusty work,
he likes to take a shower
 and spray off all that dirt. He’ll start tomorrow early
just as the new day dawns
and work a long, long day again,
 but you’ll never see him yawn. (you’ll never see him yawn.) This is the work I really love
because that’s what an excavator does. (excavator)
 I said this is the work I really love
because that’s what an excavator does. (oh, excavator) This is the work I really love
