Song Description

Some of the feelings kids go through when they start a new school.

Story Behind the Song

At Alex's 4th grade graduation picnic, the conversation around me was filled with the kids' fears and excitement about going to a new school. I interviewed them, and this is what they told me (except for the hairy mole part. That, sickly, is all me...)

Lyrics

NEW SCHOOL

Words & Music: Annie Lynn (ASCAP)
copyright 2006


(CHILD SINGING:)

I'm going to a new school this year

I don't know what I'll find I've got some fears

Like what if I get lost

Or what if I get crossed by a big hairy ape of a unibrowed kid?

(Alex Speaking:) Sidenote, the word unibrowed means having one eyebrow. Uni is a prefix meaning one...my Granny taught me that! Anyway...


I'm going to a new school this year (Hannah: Me Too!)

We don't know what we'll find, we've got some fears (Hannah: Well, Just a few...)

(BOTH)

Like will we make new friends, who like us just the way

We act and dress and play

(Alex) And can burp at will all day... (burp)
(Hannah Speaking) Hey I can do that too (burp)
(Alex Speaking) Nice touch
(Hannah Speaking)Thank you

(BOTH)
We're going to a new school this year

We don't know what we'll find, we've got some fears

Like will they have good food

Will the lunch ladies be rude

Will one have a hairy mole at the end of her chin?

BRIDGE:
(Hannah) We're going to a new school, which Teachers will we like?
(Alex) My mom says that her music teachers changed her path in life.
(Hannah Speaking) Deep Dude!
(BOTH) ********************
We're going to a new school this year,

Though we don't know what we'll find we have good cheer

So we'll get our backpacks ready, and put our swimsuits away

And we'll all meet at our new school, okay?

And we'll all meet at our new school, okay?

And we'll see you at our new school, okay!

(BUS HONKING: Hannah & Alex:) "There's the bus. see you there, see you soon "
