words by Suzy Red, Lockhart, Texas, copyright
to the tune of "Silver Threads and Golden Needles"
don't want your peanut butter and your goo on every sheet.
All I want's your homework paper
Carefully done and looking neat,
But you think I should be happy with your jelly and your tears,
And hide myself in sorrow while I make you do repairs!
work and simple answers cannot buy these A's of mine!
And I dare not hide my sorrow in the warm glow of your whine.
You can't buy my A's for money 'cause I never was that kind.
Sloppy work and simple answers cannot buy these A's of mine!
