Thirteen Ways to Lose a Teacher

The problem really isn’t our society 
The answer’s easy if you take responsibility 
Id like to have you fired if it were a possibility 
There must be fifty ways lose a teacher 

He said I generally don’t defend my son 
I’d rather have him take the bad marks for what he’s done 
So as said before, even if it sounds rude 
There must be thirteen ways lose a teacher, thirteen ways lose a teacher


Stab her in the back, Mack, disrupt the class Hass 
Don't be a good boy, coy, don’t listen to her 
play on the bus, Russ, don't ever study much 
rebellion is better, Amber, and say bye bye to the teacher
Stab her in the back, Mack, disrupt the class Hass 
Don't be a good boy, coy, don’t listen to her 
play on the bus, Russ, don't ever study much 
rebellion is better, Amber, and say bye bye to the teacher


He said it would thrill me to never see you here again
I wish there was a law in place to make your job uncertain 
I said, I’m getting that you think the cause is me, you were listing thirteen ways


I said, we’re getting nowhere fast tonight 
He said, I’ll make you see that you’re not right 
And then He got up and slammed my door tight 
There must be thirteen ways lose a teacher, thirteen ways lose a teacher



Stab her in the back, Mack, disrupt the class Hass 
Don't be a good boy, coy, don’t listen to her 
play on the bus, Russ, don't ever study much 
rebellion is better, Amber, and say bye bye to the teacher



Sung to the tune of  Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel's "Fifty Ways To leave Your Lover"

    Had a good laugh singing along with this set of lyrics. I used to be a teacher and had to deal with irate parents at times. Congratulations on your success in my contest. Love, Carolyn
