As I was hurrying through the morning, I had no time,
I had to sit down and finish work to the sound of the chime
I combed my hair and what did I do, I tied two pigtails
Oh I went down nostalgic lane I went back to school tales
I want to go back to school, back to books and paper
Back to lot of mischief, back to fun and caper
back to worry over unfinished homework and quiet indiscipline
Back to waiting for the recess and the chatter in between.
Back to wondering how best to avoid a forthcoming class
Back to looking at the rain staining the window glass
Back to crumpled uniforms, ironed out in a hurry
Of forgotten snack boxes and grudges to bury
Back to the annual day programme when talent is shown
Of teachers guiding you everywhere, oh now we have grown
Of red ink and grades dominating the day
Of wondering how best to have your own way.
Oh i want to go back to school and enjoy all the fun
When I was in school, I thought grown ups have everything done
Today i am a grown up, but I wish to be a kid again
My pigtails had their say today, I went down memory lane.
