Firemen On Their Way Lyrics

Firemen on their way, firemen on their way.
Firemen on their way, firemen on their way.

Here is the fire engine red shiny bright.
See the engine driver
turn on the siren light.
Woo-ee woo-ee hurry please make way.
Firemen on their way without delay!


Big yellow flames grow higher and higher.
Firemen arrive to put out the fire.
Swish goes the water from
the water spout.
In no time at all the flames
are put out.


Firemen on their way!
