I've Been Workin in the Classroom. . .

Tune: Working on the Railroad

Iíve been working in the classroom all the live-long day.
Iíve been working in the classroom just to help the kids every way.
Donít you hear Nickleby blowing?
Rise up and protest in the morn.
Donít you hear the CEOs shouting, ďTeacher, hear our horn.Ē

Teacher wonít obey!
Teacher wonít obey!
Teacher won't blow your horn!

Someoneís in the schoolhouse with teacher,
Someoneís in the schoolhouse, I know
Someoneís in the schoolhouse with teacher,
Plotting with the CEO
and singing:

Fee-fi, freedomís gotta go
Fee-fi, freedomís gotta go
Fee-fi, freedomís gotta go
Plotting with the CEO.

Teacher won't obey!
Teacher won't obey!
Teacher won't blow your horn.
