"Oh please Mrs McIntyre,
Tell us what to do.
We want to get somewhere in life,
Like others just like you."
“I’ll tell you what you ought to do,
Then don't ask me again!
You listen well to all I say.
It's easy to explain.”
“Don’t put the blame on other folk
If you can't read or write.
Instead of getting down to work,
You go out every night."
"To achieve your goals in adult life -
The ones you're hoping for -
You'll probably stand a better chance
By staying more indoors."
“Then find a quiet space to work,
And sit yourself right down.
Get out your school books from your bag
And get rid of that frown."
"You say you want success in life:
Well work's what you must do,
For the effort you make when you're young
Will bring success to you."
