This is a Junior Jazz song by Kirby Shaw from Cutie Idol sung by Dana. It is in the key of G Major.
- In the winter, walkin' to school!
- 40 below and I am way-past-cool!
- I'm wearing those shoes tied up with lace,
- And then, a snowball hits my face!
- I'm tried-and-true! I've got the School Yard Blues!
- All those schoolbooks in a 20-pound pack!
- All this learning's goin' to break my back!
- So much homework and too many tests!
- Somebody help me! Please! Be my guest!
- Boo, hoo, hoo! I've got the School Yard Blues!
- Football, baseball, soccer, too!
- What's a kid supposed to do?
- Sports are great, but golly gee!
- When will there be time for me?
- Cafeteria lunches on my plate!
- It's just about impossible to watch my wait!
- Pepperoni pizza, macaroni and cheese!
- How 'bout some real food, if you please?
- Get a clue! I've got the School Yard Blues!
- I'm telling you! I've got the School Yard Blues!
- Win or lose, I've got the School Yard Blues!
- Oh, yeah!
