Here I am in uniform the First Day of School
Book sack hanging on my back, Man I look Cool!
Lunch bag stuffed with my favorite food, momma's at my side
Look at me I’m a Big Boy now. Eyes don’t start to cry.
Paper, Pencils, Crayons, Scissors, Markers and Glue
In my new supply box, my name is on there too.
Placed inside my book bag, I’m ready to begin
I’ve met my teacher in the yard. Please don't take me in.
IT’S THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL, THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL
EVERYTHING IS SO BRAND NEW. WHAT AM I TO DO
ON THE FIRST DAYOF SCHOOL. THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL
MOMMA, PLEASE DON’T SAY GOODBYE
ON MY FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL
It’s not that I don’t want to learn and make you proud of me
I don’t want to leave you at home by yourself you see.
There’s my friend from 2 doors down, this may not be so bad.
We can play at recess with toys I hid in my bag
Now I'm sittin' in my desk, this is kind of neat.
The teacher asks if we know our numbers and A, B, C’s.
Each of us says our name, so we can become friends.
We play Games, Draw and Color. I hope this never ends.
Here I am in Uniform, The first Day of School
Walking out my Classroom Door. Man! That was cool.
Mom and Dad, waitin' for me by the schoolyard gate.
You know this wasn’t bad at all. Tomorrow! Just can’t wait
FOR MY 2ND DAY OF SCHOOL, THE 2ND DAY OF SCHOOL
EVERYTHING IS SO BRAND NEW, BUT I KNOW WHAT TO DO.
