GUEST,Richard Which BBC Schools Broadcast around 1966 (20) Which BBC Schools Broadcast around 1966 26 Feb 16

I'm looking for a BBC schools music broadcast pamphlet from around 1966 that
includes songs that I recall from the time (I was born in 1958) to include the following lines:

1) "With a plane smooth the grain, get the surface to your liking, only
fools blame their tools when the skill is lacking. Craftsman get their
satisfaction from the standards set them, no apprentice to the art would
ever dare forget them"

2) "My old tin car makes a lot of noise along the street, for bits drop off
as the carburettor gathers heat, a magnet at the rear attracts the bits from
falling clear, I know it's nothing much to look at but it gets me there".

3) "Around my father's garden the ***** are at play. And everyone who sees
them says oh how sweet are they. But little do they know that they're out
to have some fun. Come into the garden, see if we can trick someone, come
into the garden, hurry everyone".(French Traditional Tune).

These songs might have been in a BBC Music Workshop pamphlet or perhaps Time and Tune?


Many thanks,
