How long is this enigmatic piece of string?
One person says job won't take long.
Another says, how long, is a piece of string.
It seems none of them want an answer. We'll
Walk around wondering all the while, how long is
This blooming piece of string..

It will take as long as it take's.
Today, tomorrow that little voice will echo
act now, Up To you to decide, how
long this particular piece of string is going to be.
If we strive all our lives shall we ever understand
How long is that enigmatic piece of string?

Now have we have answered our own question, can
We just get on with working and not stringing out,
this irritating little puce of hemp.
Okay lads and ladies roll it up, put away all
thoughts of an enigmatic piece of string.
