Lyrics

Sheridan School
Did you ever take a walk up the block ?
Right up to the top
To see that special school
That stands alone
It rests alone with my impressions
That I had not long ago
Before I started to grow

I can look right through those long narrow windows
Straight into the room
Down where I sat
But I left too soon
For I just did not get enough
Not enough of the teacher’s advice
I was always right

Don’t take it away
This is where I’ll stay

So I wonder how I’ve made it through the years
Through thoughts and fears
I should thank you
Sheridan School
Where I learned to read and write and talk
And I think of you as I walk
To the top of this block

Don’t take it
Don’t take it away
This is where I’ll stay

One time a teacher turned and spanked my rear end
For something I did
But that same teacher
I like most
I just met up with her today
And she still remembers my name
Not much has changed

Don’t take it
Don’t take it away
This is where I’ll stay

As I recall I was an ornery little boy
But I’ve stayed the same
For too much change
Makes a person lame
And I find myself a lucky man
I’ve still got the same friends
It never ends

So did you ever take a walk up the block ?
On up to the top
To see that certain school
She rests there forever
She’ll rests alone with strong impressions
That I had not long ago
And now I know
That I’m not alone
