To the tune of “Christmas in Killarney” – and yes, it’s a bit forced in places. I’m a math teacher, people.
The holly green
The ivy green
The bestest grade 10’s you’ve ever seen!
It’s Christmas time in Hanley,
When do we send these kids home?
They’re busy learning geometry and poems and novels and short stories
Gluing Industrial arts projects
And baking small gingerbread homes.
In gym they’re shooting baskets,
In science it’s Chemistry and Wildlife has them studying Lakes and fish and trees!
It hurts, you know,
To stub your toe
While trying to avoid the mistletoe
Why are there no kids named Stanley?
The likes you’ve never known….
It’s Christmas time in Hanley!
When do we send these kids home?!
