The Last Day of School 
Summer vacation is starting today.
The teachers are shouting out, "Hip, hip, hooray!"
Our grumpy old principal grins ear to ear,
and runs down the hall shouting, "Summer is here!"
The buses come early - they're usually late.
The teachers say, "Hurry up! Pack up! Don't wait!"
The school bell is ringing. There's no time to chat.
The whole school is emptied in one second flat.
Everyone's happy. Our spirits are flying.
Except for our parents. They're sulking and crying.
