I’m lost in a place very far from my home -
In a forest where millions of sad children roam,
With a teacher who tells all we kids what to do
And it’s worse, oh much worse than a life at a zoo.
I’m missing my Mummy. I’m missing my Dad
And oh oh oh oh - I am feeling so sad.
The noise in the classroom is so very loud
And oh how I hate being one of a crowd.
There are children who’re big - well as big as a bus -
And children who look and feel sorry for us.
I’m put in a place where the others are tough -
And I’m watching the big ones who’re terribly rough.
I’m trying to remember the things I must do
And I’m doing my best to tie up my shoe.
My name’s on the register - what does that mean?
Perhaps I’m now royal and a bit like a queen.
We feel like the animals who’re locked in a zoo -
Oh why put us here and just what can we do?
But the teachers all like us, we know by their smiles
And yet home and my Mum seem a million miles!
At the end of the day I’ve made a few friends
And we’re all really glad that this day’s at its end.
Tomorrow I’m sure will be better than this
And oh, here comes my Mum with a hug and a kiss.
