School bells rang "That Day"
Beckoning Crewed cut boys and pig tailed girls
To take to their seats all in a row,
Teachers watch while their
Students recite "The Pledge"
Mr Carson's slicked back 50's style causes
Wide eyed girls to hide secret crushes "That Day"
Reading, Writing, Arithmatic and
Boy only recess revealing bloody secrets
While classes are controlled by ruler sticks
Homeroom Mothers adored by all
Cup Cakes and other party treats
Promote pride filled faces "That Day"
Science Fairs, Boy Scouts and Brownies
Teach respect and responsibility
Public annoucements systems
Beckon students to Principal's office
Everyone knowing what that might mean
A request to take a long walk home, "That Day"
Protecting a five year old sister
4th grade doesn't matter anymore,
School girl crush dimisished
Where did the homeroom Mom go "That Day"
Fear replaced pride, friends don't linger
Pigtails gone, all alone and in charge
