On The Way To School
Mireille Mathieu

MIREILLE:
On the way to school each morning,
Making sure they won't be late,
All the animals are going
With their books they just can't wait.
EMMANUEL:
Little mouse wears great big glasses,
And the peacock holds a pen,
Here's the duck who loves his classes,
Baby chicks with mama hare.
PLACIDO:
Five little kittens wearing their mittens
Tend to lag behind.
They might be scared, but they won't be spared
From their very first time.
LES TROIS:
On their way to school each morning
You can hear the turtle sigh,
She's a huffing and a puffing,
Every inch just like a mile.

MIREILLE:
On the way to school together
Just because they love to learn
Go the beasts by any weather,
Always happy to return.
EMMANUEL:
See the camel with his knapsack,
The giraffe beside the skunk,
Baby elephant had sit back,
Holding mama by the trunk.
PLACIDO:
Here come the monkeys, the zebras and donkeys.
The chickens and the horse.
They realise the way to get wise
Is to read of course.
LES TROIS:
Said the turtle to the panda.
When she got to school so late,
Gonna send a note to Santa,
Ask him for a pair of skates,
Ask him for a pair of skates!
