bertha is also a big green machine that used to appear on childrens television during the daytime. It always used to break down in every episode after making some toys or items went wrong, bertha got ill and needed repairing. then the whole episode would revolve around bertha's illness and it all ended when she got better. There is only one worker I can think of at the moment, and that is Mr Sprockett. He always had a pencil lodged in his ear. he wore blue overalls and had a clipboard where he would mark off things on a checklist

Bertha, lovely Bertha
You are a lovely machine
And anyone who works with you
Will know just what I mean

Bertha, lovely Bertha
Sometimes I think you're a dream
When we work out what you have to do
You can always turn the goods out
always turn the goods out
We can depend upon you

Clicking in the day
Flashing in the night
Your computer is flashing lightly
Some people say you've a mind of your own
and I think thats very likely .. likely

Bertha, lovely Bertha
Sometimes I think you're a dream
When we work out what you have to do
You can always turn the goods out
always turn the goods out
We can depend upon you.

I had a hard run
Running from your window
I was all night running, running
Lord, I wonder if you care
I had a run in
Run around and a run down
Run around the corner, corner
Lord ran smack into a tree
I had to move
Really had to move
That's why if you please
I am on my bended knees
Bertha don't you come around here any more
Dressed myself in green
Lord I went down unto the sea
Try to see what's going down
Try to read between the lines
I had a feeling I was falling, falling, falling
I turned round to see
Heard a voice a-calling
Lord you was coming after me
I had to move
Really had to move
That's why if you please
I am on my bended knees
Bertha don't you come around here any more
Ran into a rain-storm
Ducked into a bar door
It's all night pouring, pouring rain
Lord but not a drop on me
Test me, test me, test me, test me
Why don't you arrest me
Throw me in the jailhouse
Lord, until the sun go down
I had to move
Really had to move
That's why if you please
I am on my bended knees
Bertha don't you come around here any more
