The Counter

I've oiled these machines a thousand times
Chaff, cod, and herring
Running sweetly as a song
Severing bones, cleaning gullets
Singing a long song

Now they say old
Not reliable any more
I used these machines for years
Never a bad result yet

Always oiled regular
Run like magic
Just the ticket

No-one respects age anymore
Want electronic things
How do I do my fish
Do they think about
such things
