Back to school

Summer’s over
Sure was fun
Sang our songs
Got some sun
But days are shorter
Nights are cool
Time to get
Back to school

Always comes
Way too fast
Longer we wish
Summer would last
But we don’t get
To make the rule
That says we must
Go to school

Summer still
Has weeks to go
Three in fact
Plus a day or so
Don’t matter tho
Because you’ll
Spend your days
Stuck in school

But don’t be sad
Don’t’ make a fuss
‘bout getting up
To catch a bus
You don’t want
To be a fool
You really want
To be in school
