A simple song you can adapt to include many jobs.
Tune: Frère Jacques
Working hard. Working hard.
At my job. At my job.
I work as a (teacher, nurse, cleaner, doctor, etc). x 2
I work hard.
This was my favourite song about jobs when I was child.
You can just sing the chorus of the song inserting different jobs:
Oh, who are the people in your neighbourhood
In your neighbourhood
In your neighbourhood.
Oh, who are the people in your neighbourhood,
The people that you meet each day.
Oh, a doctor is a person in your neighbourhood,
In your neighbourhood, in your neighbourhood.
A doctor is a person in your neighbourhood,
A person that you meet each day.
Add verses with other people – teacher, police officer, chef, waiter, gardener, etc.
