I think I need a bit of slumber
On this cloudy day
My mouth is full of big, fat yawns
They will not go away

It would not be that safe, I think
To lay my brown head down
If I fell asleep at school, my students would
Paint me like a clown

I guess it would feel quite shameful
If I were to be found out
If the school's head entered my room
She’s wake me with a shout

She’d look me up and down, right then
A tongue click at my clothes
It’s hard to look the teacher part with
A stupid, round, red nose
