School break time
Break time at school is a nightmare they say,
And even in rain you get sent out to play,
We go out each day, in every weather,
And what do we do, standing huddled together?
We watch teachers inside, nibbling biscuits and chocs,
Whilst we stand outside, small frozen blocks,
We queue up at the fountain,
They're inside, sipping tea!
We're climbing a mountain,
They're having fun by the sea!
Do you know what I'm saying,
When I truthfully say,
No one ever wants to go out at play.
Everyone knows that you have to wear pants,
Though sometimes you feel like they're full of ants,
There are long ones for nannies,
And boxers for teens,
And ones that are smelly when you eat too many beans!
The wimpies wear skimpies,
The girlies wear pinkies,
The babies wear ones that are "Oh, they're so dinky!"
