I have made up my mind
I will depart from hence
And do my humble teaching thing
Behind my little fence

Because there is enough
More than enough indeed
To keep me fully occupied
My students have real need.

I don't want seminars
Or workshops by the ton
About the methods I must use
The things that must be done.

The methods that we use
The hours that we spend
Must be those that are functional
The teacher has to bend.

If I can teach my folk
To read and write and spell
Then let me grapple with my lot
And let me do it well.

So I will go chez moi,
And do the first things first,
Don't organize me eins, zwei, drei! -
Or else I'll surely burst !!
