PRECISION! (Uncle Molle Rat's Song)

How does the bricklayer lay the right amount of bricks?
How does he know the precise amount to mix?
When the Conciergerie’s* off, how does it get fixed?
With precision
With precision

How does the vintner make the perfect bordeaux?
What helps the gardener make his lovely flowers grow?
Who was the best friend of Michelangelo?
It’s precision
precision

But just to know the ways and wheres and how and whys that something works isn’t all you need
For we must delve into the issues very essence if one wants to succeed!

What makes the door fit exactly in the jam?
How does the scholar excel at his exam?
What makes the tiny baby fit into her pram?
It’s precision
it’s precision

How did the architect design the Palace of Versailles?
How did Moses reach Mt. Sinai
What made de Lome's airship sail across the sky?

But just know the ways and wheres and how and whys that something works just isn’t all you need
For we must delve into the issues very essence if one wants to succeed

How does the harpist pluck upon his lyre?
What makes the lonely crank turn the eager gear?
How does a train from Prague get all the way to here?

How does the draughtsman locate the midpoint?
How does the carpenter make a dove tail joint?
And how do our monarch’s never fail to disappoint?
With precision
With precision

*The oldest clock tower in Paris
