Red Pens-correcting tests
Blue Pens-making answers
Bullies beating pests
My mind, a tap dancer

Blue Pens-making answers
Faltering, waiting, doubting
My mind, a tap dancer
Wandering, laughing, shouting

Faltering, waiting, doubting
Never quite sure
Wandering, laughing, shouting
Taking quite a detour

Never quite sure
The Places it could take me
Taking quite a detour
Cities, Forests, Undersea

The Places it could take me
The work I’ve done so well
Cities, Forests, Undersea
Just waiting for that bell

The work I’ve done so well
I want it to pay off so badly
Just waiting for that bell
Wandering around, sadly

I want it to pay off so badly
There is a place I can go
Wandering around, sadly
I’m sure I will know

There is a place I can go
I go to a school right now
I’m sure I will know
One day I’ll leave, I vow

I go to a school right now
Bullies beating pests
One day I’ll leave, I vow
