No School Today

Look outside the window,
you will not believe
There’s snow coming down like popcorn balls
right up to the eaves
Quick, turn on the radio,
let’s hear what they say
The man comes on to tell us,
there’s no school today
There’s no school today,
there’s no school today
The man comes on to tell us
there’s no school today

I’ve been saved by tons of snow,
I was in trouble deep
I had so much homework
I could see it in my sleep
Forget about the math now,
forget the spelling too
The only thing I need to know is s-n-o-w
s-n-o-w, s-n-o-w
the only thing I need to know is s-n-o-w

I’m gonna go with my friends
to the biggest hill in town
We’re gonna climb up to the very top
we’re gonna sled right down
With Danny in front, Annie in back
I’ll ride in between
We’re gonna make the fastest train
that you’ve ever seen
That you’ve ever seen
that you’ve ever seen
We’re gonna make the fastest train
you’ve ever seen

When our toes are frozen
when my nose is blue
We’ll head back to my house
here’s what we’ll do
We’ll take off our boots and coats
leave ‘em by the door
We’ll laugh and drink hot chocolate
and hope it snows some more
Hope it snows some more,
hope it snows some more
We’ll laugh and drink hot chocolate
hope it snows some more

Back in school next morning,
it ended all too soon
The calendar’s depressing,
it seems like years till June
You could ask the teachers,
I don’t know if they’d say
but I bet they were wishing
that there was no school today
There’s no school today,
there’s no school today
I bet that they were wishing
there’s no school today
