SONG

FROM THE HALLS OF BLESSED SACRAMENT
TO THE SHORES OF BUBBLE GUM BAY.
WE WILL FIGHT OUR COUNTRY'S TEACHERS
WITH SPIT BALLS, GUM, AND CLAY.
FIRST TO FIGHT FOR LUNCH AND RECESS,
THEN TO KEEP OUR DESKS A MESS.
WE ARE PROUD TO CLAIM THE TITLES
OF THE PESTS FROM B.S.S.

PARODY, SONG

MINE EYES HAVE SEEN THE GLORY OF THE BURNING OF THE SCHOOL.
WE HAVE HUNG ALL THE TEACHERS AND BROKEN ALL THE RULES.
NOW WE'RE MARCHING DOWN THE CORRIDOR TO GET THE PRINCIPAL.
THE SCHOOL IS BURNING DOWN.

GLORY, GLORY HALLELUIAH.
THE TEACHER HIT ME WITH THE RULER.
SO I SLAMMED HER ON THE BEAN WITH A ROTTEN TANGERINE,
AND THE WHOLE CLASS STARTED TO SCREAM.

Submitter comment: SUNG TO THE TUNE OF THE "BATTLE HYMN OF THE REPUBLIC".

Where learned: DETROIT ; MICHIGAN, ASSUMED
