Do the hokey cokey curric'lum

You put your times tables in,

Your times tables out,

In, out, in, out,

Shake it all about;

We don't know what to teach them,

'Cos they tell you something else,

That's what it's all about!

CHORUS

Oh, national curric'lum,

Oh, national curric'lum,

Oh, national curric'lum,

In, out, in, out, shake it all about.

The children need to learn,

The children need to think,

Think, learn, think, learn,

They take it on the chin!

We follow all the changes,

We're told that's what to do,

That's what it's all about!

Everybody now ...

CHORUS

The teachers have to think,

The children need to think,

The gov'ment's changing all the rules,

We don't know what to think,

We've changed the way we work it,

And we've changed the way to test,

That's what it's all about!

Altogether now ........

CHORUS

Attainment targets in,

Attainment targets out,

In, out, in, out, shake it all about!

We test them till they squeak,

We measure every thought,

They know the answers that we seek,

That's what it's all about!

Last time now ...........

CHORUS
