My local public TV station has been playing a self-promotional video that uses this as its soundtrack. I like it. I was thinking you might like it too. You can hear it at YouTube.


WE'RE GOING TO BE FRIENDS
As recorded by The White Stripes on “White Blood Cells” (2001)
   
[1] Fall is here; hear the yell,
Back to school, ring the bell,
Brand new shoes, walking blues,
Climb the fence, books and pens,
I can tell that we are gonna be friends.
I can tell that we are gonna be friends.

[2] Walk with me, Suzy Lee
Through the park and by the tree
We will rest upon the ground
And look at all the bugs we found
Safely walk to school without a sound
Safely walk to school without a sound

[3] Here we are, no one else
We walked to school all by ourselves
There's dirt on our uniforms
From chasing all the ants and worms
We clean up and now it's time to learn.
We clean up and now it's time to learn.

[4] Numbers, letters, learn to spell,
Nouns, and books, and show and tell,
Playtime, we will throw the ball,
Back to class, through the hall,
Teacher marks our height against the wall.
Teacher marks our height against the wall.

[Bridge] And we don't notice any time pass.
We don't notice anything.
We sit side by side in every class.
Teacher thinks that I sound funny,
But she likes the way you sing.

[5] Tonight I'll dream, while I'm in bed,
When silly thoughts go through my head
‘Bout the bugs and alphabet,
And when I wake tomorrow, I'll bet
That you and I will walk together again.
I can tell that we are gonna be friends.

[Outro] Yes, I can tell that we are gonna be friends.
