Annie's up at seven on a work day
Brewing up a cup of peppermint tea
Gathering her papers and lesson plans
She grabs her keys
Teaching arithmetic and Africa
Geology and girls' basketball
All the kids in her class will tell you she's the best
But she's heard other teachers in the hall saying
"What are we going to do about Annie
Pretty girl like her shouldn't be alone
If she took our advice, dressed up real nice
She'd find a man to take her home"

Mondays come with questions of couples
Where and with whom did you go
Avoiding the personal pronoun
She hopes it doesn't show
Shopping with her lover in the city
Two women holding hands don't get a stare
If the kids at school knew, what would they do
Would they hate her, why should they care, tell me

Repeat chorus.
