Joe Offer Lyr Req: 9 O'Clock the Spelling Lesson Just Begun (3) ADD: The Little Red School House 18 Mar 19

Hmm. I wonder is the requester's memory was mom-processed. I found this:


In the little red school house,
With my book and slate,
In the little red school house,
I was always late.
I long to be back there where I was a scholar, in the days of yore.
How I'd stand right up there and hollar, "two and two are four".
When we should have been learning about the Golden Rule,
our little hearts were yearning for the swimming pool.
Oh how we'd sit and wait for the 4 o'clock bell,
the moment that we heard it we would run like. .mad,
O golly gee, I want to be, in the little red school house.

Ten o'clock the spelling lessons just begun,
Johnny throws an ink ball just for fun.
Hits the teachers ear with an awful splat,
She turns around and says, "Who did that?"
Pretty little Percy in the very first row, raises up his hand and says, "Teacher, I know".
Little Johnny whispers to the teachers pride,
"You just wait till I get you outside".

Johnny's told to stand up with his face to the wall,
He says, "I don't wanna" and he tried to stall,
"If I stand up there I'll take an awful chance,
I've got a great big tear in the seat of my pants".

Teacher sends you home to wash your face and then,
you say, "Oh what's the use, it just gets dirty again".
Oh gee, I wanna be, in the little red school house.
