Some years ago, when I was just
A bit a-helpin' Pa,
He used to say, "Son, measure twice
Before you start to saw."

Measure twice before you start
To saw a board in two,
It's a pretty good rule, no matter
What the job you have to do.

I've thrown away a board or two,
And, some I've had to splice;
And all because I didn't take
The time to measure twice!

It always pays to double check,
Before you carry on,
For once you've cut a board too short,
The time you saved is gone.

And so, in life, at work or play,
Remember Pa's advice,
And always, before you start to saw,
Be sure to measure twice!
