Deda Heigh Ho, Heigh Ho, I Bit the Teacher's Toe! (92* d) RE: Heigh Ho, Heigh Ho, I Bit the Teacher's Toe! 30 Mar 05


From a New England prep school, single gender, mid 1960s:

I go to (three strong beats -- like "JohnSon School") so pity me
There ain't a (girl / boy)in the vicinity
And every night at eight they shut the gate
I don't know what the hell I ever-came-here-for

I'm gonna pack my bags and run-away ...

(Damn there was a second verse about escape plans, smoking and drinking -- but it's escaped ME.) I wish I knew how to describe this tune -- everyone knows it. It sounds like a school or military song.

Then there was my daughter's favorite from the mid 1980s, Colorado, to the tune of the Kids-R-Us commerical:

I don't wanna grow up, I'm a Special Ed kid,
My Mamma dropped me on my head and look what she did!
I can rub my head, I can chew my gum,
Oh, it's great to be a Special Ed kid!

There may have been other words but that's all I remember. I'll email her and ask.
