Learning lessons ev'ry day, first to work, then to play.
Try to learn each lesson thru, reading, writing, spelling, too.
There's one lesson we like best, and that is our music test.
Try to sing sweet harmony, that is if we stay on key.

Do, re, mi. It clings to mi, re, do.
Love, honor, always obey.
These things we learn ev'ry day.
Or try to Um, um, um.
We're learning Um, um, um.
There is a lesson we know in mi, re, do.

We don't like our lessons much. We like candies, cakes and such.
We just like to romp and play, singing skipping all the day.
We like games with lots of fun, like King James was King William's son.
After that we're all tired out, then we sit right down and shout.
