The Lyrics

The first stanza and chorus are part of folklore. I composed the second and third stanzas.
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the burning of the school
We have tortured ev'ry teacher; we have broken ev'ry rule
We have bound and gagged the principal and tossed him in the pool
Our gang is marching on!

Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!
Teacher hit me with a ruler
I met her at the door with a loaded .44
And the teacher don't teach no more!

We have pistol-whipped the counselor and made her eat her files
The football coach's brains are smeared across the bathroom tiles
We have used a Roto-Rooter to remove the nurse's piles --
Our gang is marching on!


In halls adorned with ivy they designed our lesson plans
And what can be the sense of them, nobody understands
So that is why we made the teachers shove 'em up their cans
Our gang is marching on!
