“I Really Don’t Like Homework”


I really don’t’ like homework

It really is a bore

I stink at every subject

And every day there’s more


I’m running out of excuses

My dog refuses math

My cat has been declawed

And my hippo’s in the bath


The teachers are inconsistent

They say we have only an hour

But really, one day there’s none

The next there’s a huge tower


I fall asleep in class

And never get the notes,

I’m always so confused

On Columbus and his boats


Projects here, Projects there

100% of our grade?!

Oh teacher, we do not want to

Do work without our pay


I really don’t like homework

It really is a bore

I stink at every subject

And every day there’s more
