Let Me out of the Classroom

Let me out of the classroom.
Let me out of the school.
I'm not so good at geography.
I would rather be watching T.V.

It's still twenty minutes till recess.
Lunch is hours away.
Won't you please, please, please get me out
of the class today?

Someone's here with a note now.
Teacher's calling my name.
He says my mother is right outside.
I should go and she'll give me a ride

to my yearly dentist appointment.
I forgot it's today!
Teacher please, please, please help me out.
Won't you let me stay?
