A Homeschool For Us!

A Poem By LoriAnn // 3/26/2010

Sing to the tune of "The Big Time For Us!" from the musical, "The Will Rogers Follies". Enjoy!

 

From the small fam’ly
To the medium fam’ly
To the big fam’ly,
To the medium-small fam’ly
More, more, learning more, more
No more big school
From now on it’s homeschool!
 
We like acting,
And subtracting
Gotta knit another skein
Doing “homework’s” such a pain
 
School for us is a family plus
We’re together getting along
Sometimes right, sometimes wrong
Sad or happy
Or mad or scrappy
 
Nothing’s easy, and nothing’s perfect
We still complain and we fuss
But long as we stay together
It’s a homeschool for us!
 
Hi there! I’m homeschooling!
Hi there! I also homeschool!
Hi there! I homeschool, too!
(See ya!) She’s graduating!
 
We’re glad our parents homeschool us
Ain’t we got fun?
We are not un-socialized
Talk to anyone
Before we’re bored with stuff we do
We’ve got it done
There’s no mean old school superintendent
Hounding us ‘cause we’re independent!
 
At night our Daddy reads to us
And hears us pray
And we meet in an orchestra
Every Friday!
Scratch your skull
Tilt your head
Ask your mom for help!
 
Folks ask us what we want to do
When we grow up we’re going to
Home
School
Too!
 
Nothing’s easy and nothing’s perfect
We still complain and we fuss
But long as we stay together
It’s a homeschool for us!
 
Homeschool
And Homeschool
And Homeschool—
Homeschool—
Homeschool—
Homeschool!
 
It’s a homeschool
For us!

I don't know the tune, but

I don't know the tune, but this was really fun =D My favorite part was where it said: 'Before we're bored with stuff to do/we've got it done' LOL!

'Folks ask us what we're going to do/When we grow up we are going to/Homschool too!' ROFL :-D
