Teachers teachers they don’t have a clue
All I want to do is colour and glue
I don’t want to add I don’t want to rhyme
I really don’t need to tell the time
I just want to sit here and doodle and draw
Twinkle Twinkle little star, I don’t care who you are
I just wanna run and have some fun
Jump in the mud and play some games
I don’t want fruit from you I just want my petits filous
I want chocolate and biscuits and coke for my break
and I promise I won’t get a tummy ache.
Teachers teachers when will they know
that with all these things
I will still grow
- Jessica Lynch
