Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Champagne Charlie (from Edward Woodward)
Our 4th grade teacher had taught us this and made us perform it at a school competition. I was the 'Tardy Scholar' in the performance - so here's how I still remember it in my head years later. Of course, this may have gone through some iterations from the original...
I am scolded every day / How it is, I cannot say / when I reach the schoolyard gate / someone tells me I am late!
Chorus: Tardy Scholar is your name / You are scolded everyday / Always creeping through the schoolyard gate / making faces just because you're late / tardy Scholar is your name / you are scolded everyday / Now you see how well we know you / Tardy scholar is your name.
I can spell the BA BAA / That i learnt the other day / How to figure on my slate / Yet they say I'm always late!
Chorus: You are forgetful to be sure / You are forgetful to be sure / Now you see how well we know you / Tardy scholar is your name.
That is just the way you see / All are making fun of me / Laughing at my tangled hair / No one likes me, I declare!
Chorus: Stupid fellow don't you cry / Stupid fellow don't you cry / We are making fun of you Ha! Ha! / Pray what better can we do Ha! Ha! Tardy Scholar is your name / You are scolded every day / Now you see how well we know you / Tardy Scholar is your name.
