The day has finally come and I’m dating Gladys
We’re both now in fifth grade and ten-years-old
But we got a new teacher named Mr. McGwincy
Now in the fifth grade I’ve been awaiting to date
Say Mr. McGwincy how have you’ve been lately?
His answer is great and his plans for us are good
Now that the entire student body is of school-age
Many people has either been held back or skipped
I can now say I’m proudly dating as fifth graders
Well me and Gladys has been waiting for so long
That our time has come and we are so proud of it
Can’t I say that I’m in love with Gladys Schuckner?
Say Gladys what do you like mostly about myself?
Well I love your charming smile and your bravery
Say Hughes what do you like mostly about herself?
Well I love your beautifulness and your happiness
Welcome to the fifth grade my students age of ten
And I would like to say that Markevious is friendly
Now that his bullying past is behind his kindliness
So he wishes to start over and put his past behind
Please don’t be frightened by him he’s so very kind
And his pantsing days are now over and he’s better
Never judge a book by it’s cover students the lesson
So look at the bright side of things and be so kindly
There’s so much to learn as a fifth grade boy or girl
So let’s begin with a historical lesson and it is great
