Workin'

"Workin'" is a song about the importance of working, sung by the Fraggles in the Fraggle Rock episode "The Thirty-Minute Work Week" to motivate Wembley to choose a job.

Each Fraggle describes his or her own job: Mokey gathers radishes, Red cleans The Fraggle Pond, Gobo is an explorer, and Boober likes anything boring. Wembley isn't sure what he wants to do.

The song was re-recorded with a more "rock and roll" sound for its album releases. An "international" version of the song is shown in the documentary Down at Fraggle Rock, shifting between English, French, German, Spanish, Finnish, Dutch, Danish, Norwegian, and Swedish.

Elements of the song resurfaced in later episodes as well. Strains of "Workin'" can be heard at the end of "Doozer Building Song" in the episode "The Doozer Contest," and Gobo sings a little song with the same tune as "Workin'" as he goes to retrieve his postcard in the second-last episode, "The Honk of Honks." Wrench Doozer mumbles the song in a scene from "The Voice Inside".
