The First Day of School by Kenn Nesbitt
Today is the day that we go back to school.
My family’s excited! We all think it’s cool.

We know we’ll have homework and study like crazy.
We won’t have a chance to relax and be lazy.

We’ll wake up each morning. We’ll fill up our packs
and hoist them and haul them to school on our backs.

We’ll work from the morning till late every night.
We’ll practice our math, and we’ll read and we’ll write.

For month after month we’ll have so much to do.
I’m sure that this might sound unpleasant to you.

So, why are we having this grand celebration?
Today we start planning next summer’s vacation.
