Welcome children welcome to your school
and now it is time for learning every day
while here you'll have to sit upon your stool
for there is no time for you here to play
I hope you will like it and soon settle in
for this is the only way for you to start
and so dear children please let us begin
I hope you will join in with all your heart

English and History
learn to count and one two three
writing and reading too
also things for you to do
though it may seem a lot
it is not so bad at all
you'll sweat and you'll get hot
but it does no good to bawl

When you're older you'll be glad you went
you'll see that your time it really was well spent
to go to school it wasn't bad at all
and later in life you can see it all
I'm glad that there was a school right there for me
and think of all those that does not have a school
I know I'm lucky lucky as can be
and glad that I did not turn out a fool
