The Lyrics

K, here's the story: It's a really bad blizzard and the kids have to stay in school overnight. Torture!
It's hailing today
School board says that its an emergency
I've got to go pee
I need to say goodbye to my family

But neither will happen
And I'm so bored
We're here 'til tomorrow
Of that I'm sure
But I'll try, oh Lord, I'll try
To go to sleep

My tush starts to freeze
My frickin' teacher Dave sparks a fire for heat
I'm happy, yet sad
I'm here with all my friends, and it seems...not bad

But we're trapped here forever
'Til the storm, it goes
And Sunday we'll miss out
On our TV shows

But I'll try, oh Lord, I'll try
To go to sleep

I gathered that God's angels
Were having fun that day
There came to me this chant of hope
And this is what I'd say

I'd say "Don't hail today, don't hail today, don't hail today, oh, please!"
That's "Don't hail today, don't hail away, please fail to stay near me!"
"Don't hail today, don't hail today, don't hail today, oh, please!"
"Don't hail today, don't hail away, please fail to stay near me!"

(Synth Solo)

I thought that day would never end
But to my surprise
I hopped aboard my starship
And soon opened my eyes

"Don't hail today, don't hail today, don't hail today, oh, please!"
"Don't hail today, don't hail away, please fail to stay near me!"
"Don't hail today.............
I was originally going to do Failing away, but it was already takenThis song was inspired by mishearing "the virgin sea" for "emergency" and "they were angels" for "day would never end"And don't get me wrong i love Styx, and sailing away is one of my favorite songs of all time. Moo if you like Styx!%-)

MOOOOOOOOOOO!!! A few days ago, I made my younger cousin listen to Styx, and he's all like "Eeeek, it's hippy music!" It was hilarious.
