With the end of term in touching distance (and the Christmas party still fresh in mind), one former headteacher shares his take on the beloved Christmas song

*Disclaimer: A little growth mindset is needed for this one...

 

Are you sure it's the end of another term?

Do the thoughts of the Christmas party made you squirm?

Did the senior staff tell you,

How good you were when drunk

Despite how many jager bombs and shots you and the others sunk? 

 

So here it is, Merry Christmas,

Yet again no real pay rise,

Look to the future now,

The government are in for a surprise.

 

Have you cleared all the decorations from the wall,

And ensured every single child has had a ball?

Have you stuffed the chocs in the cupboard, 

And hoovered the glitter from the floor,

Before breathing a sigh of relief and closing your classroom door?

 

So here it is, Merry Christmas,

Again no measly pay rise,

Look to the future now,

The government deserve their surprise.

 

What did the staff do,

When they saw you kissing the caretaker...

Aaah ah aaah aahh

 

Now it's time for your fun and frolics at your home,

With the loved ones you've ignored, and not phoned,

Time to drink, giggle and enjoy,

With family, friends and neighbours all around

And forget the stress, the moans, the kids, the school sound

 

So here it is, Merry Christmas, 

No attempt at giving a pay rise,

Look to the future now,

We've had enough of government lies,

 

So here it is, Merry Christmas,

They promised a pay rise

What is the future now,

Another ex teacher for the govt to analyse.

 

And, just because sometimes, you can't beat the original...
