Lunch-duty ditty

To the tune of Van Halen's "Jump"

We head out
A football zings past our crowns
We've got it tough
With tweens running all around
And we know, kids, just how you feel
We've got to roll with the punches until it's dismissal

Ah, can't you see us standin' here
We've got our mouths busy scarfin' protein
Amid this rambunctious scene
Marked by shaky hygiene

Ah
It's time to duck (duck)
Safest to duck
Go ahead an' duck (duck)
Go ahead and duck

Ow oh
Hey you
Who threw that?
Kid, what's your game?
You say you don't know
You won't know until you can aim

So can't ya see us standing here
We've got our mouths sipping cold, old caffeine
Amid this rambunctious scene
So far from being serene

Ah
It's time to duck (duck)
Safest to duck
Go ahead an' duck (duck)
Go ahead and duck...

  1. I don't know the Van Halen song, but I do appreciate the creativity. I didn't have lunch duty in the elementary school where I taught. Instead I had bus line dismissal duty...just as bad. Isn't it amazing what they make teachers do in spite of our many years of education, experience, etc.????

  3. Hahahaha! All of it is funny, but this made me snort, "Amid this rambunctious scene/ Marked by shaky hygiene." OH YES.
