There are so many workers in our community,
Providing goods and services for all our wants and needs;
Whether paid or unpaid, everyone agrees,
Their generosity and skills, we appreciate indeed!
Oh! Who do you think I am?
What do you think I do?
I’m not an Engineer or a Socceroo.
I take care of sick people,
That is what I do.
I am a ... Nurse. How clever of you!
