I'll Start to School To-Morrow.

Words and Music by Frieda Cohen.
I am so very happy, I don't know what to say:
I'll start to school to-morrow, and go there every day;
I'd like to see the teacher-I hear she is so good:
I hope she knows some fairy tales like Little Riding Hood.
I'll start to school to-morn, to learn to read and write;
I am so very happy, I won't sleep much to-night.
I've got my school-bag ready, packed up my books and slate,
So that I can't forget a thing, or go to school too late.
I'd like to show my dolly to all the girls in school,
But cannot take her with me, 'cause it's against the rule;
And if my cat and doggie don't fight while I'm away.
As soon as I come back from school, together we will play. - Refrain.
As soon as school is over, I'll ran home quick to play
With dolly, cat and doggie; to all of them I'll say,
"You must he good, my children, and sit down on that stool,
And I will teach you something nice that I have learned at school." Ref.
