Take this test and shove it



by Larry Gibson
33 years teacher retired



Sung to the music of Take this a job and Shove it! By Johnny Paycheck

Note: Before each test in the chorus, add appropriate acronym.


Take this test and shove it, I ain't teaching to it no more!
My conscience won't allow me to compromise my
principles anymore
Get out of my way as I head for the main door
Take this test and shove it, I ain't teaching to it no more!

I've been teaching in this school for near 30
years
Watching in recent times as the children sink into mass
confusion
I've seen a lot of good folks fooled by politicians hell
bent on destruction
While they insist on dictating every method of
instruction!

Take this test and shove it, I ain't teaching to it no more!
My conscience won't allow me to compromise my
principles anymore
Get out of my way as I head for the main door
Take this test and shove it, I ain't teaching to it no more!

Well we've got this "Governor", who's an arrogant tool,
surrounded by his legislative fools
Turning our schools into charters solely for corporate
gain
One of these days I'm just going to
blow..
Lord, I can't wait for the day I finally open up and shout
it...

Take this test and shove it, I ain't teaching to it no more!
My conscience won't allow me to compromise my
principles anymore
Get out of my way as I head for the main door
Take this test and shove it, I ain't teaching to it no more!

Take this test and shove it.......
