Lyrics

1. The mill-wheels are clapping, the brook turns them round, Clip clap!
By day and by night is the grain being ground, Clip clap!
The miller is jolly and ever alert,
That we may have bread and be glad like a bird,
Clip clap! Clip clap! Clip clap!

2. How busy the wheels are in turning the stone, Clip clap!
And grinding so finely the grain we have grown, Clip clap!
The baker the flour for the baking will use,
And make us a roll or a cake if we choose,
Clip clap! Clip clap! Clip clap!
