We lived out in the country and went to small country school
The teacher was very knowledgeable and taught the golden rule
She taught all grades, from one though eight
And always made sure none of the children were late.
She taught all the regular subjects, and extra ones too.
We learned how to draw, sing, and go on spring tours.
We always had a Christmas program, where all children took heart
And gave joy to all the parents as they came up to do their parts.
There was always a parent who would dress up as St Nick
To pass out the presents the children had painted or stitched.
At the end of the school year, they would clean up the schoolyard
So all the families could participate in luncheon and games of cards
Or just games for the children to play
To keep them busy until the end of the day
