Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Champagne Charlie (from Edward Woodward)
The words I remember from my grandmother in Ireland in 1933
Tardy scholar is your name.If we scold you whose's to blame.
Always sleeping til the clock strikes eight Slowly creeping to the schoolyard gate.
Tardy scholar is your name.Tardy scholar is your name.
Ah; you see how well we know you Tardy scholar is your name.
I can spell my ABC and I learned the other day how to figure on my slate.Yet they tell me I am late.
I am scolded every day, why it is I cannot say.When I reach the schoolyard gate,still they tell me I am late.
Stupid fellow dont you cry ,stupid fellow dont you cry.
We are making fun of you Ha Ha.Pray what better can we do Ha Ha.
Tardy scholar is your name Tardy scholar is your name.Ah you see how well we know you Tardy scholar is your name
