[KLIPING] TEST TROUBLE


TEST TROUBLE
BY SHIRLEY L STONE AND MICHELE BARONE



I’M A REGULAR KID. I’M LIKE THE REST
I’M NOT THE WORST. I’M NOT THE BEST

BUT I HAVE TROUBLE IN MY LIFE
THERE’S A PROBLEM CAUSING ME STRIFE
KIDS ARE BEING TESTED FROM EAST TO WEST
I’LL TELL YOU TRULLY NOT IN JEST
I CANNOT PASS THE STANDARD TEST
I CANNOT PASS IT WITH THE REST

MY TEACHER NAME IS MS. BEST
I’LL TELL YOU TRULLY NOT IN JEST

PASSING TESTS IS HER QUEST
SHE’LL GIVE ME THE STANDARD TEST

I CANNOT PASS THE STANDARD TEST
I CONNOT PASS IT,  MS. BEST
I CANNOT DO  IT,  I’VE CONFESSED


MY TEACHER SAID TO USED MY BRAIN
BUT I KNOW THIS TEST WILL BE A PAIN
SHE TRIES TO HELP, BUT THEN GOES WILD
CAN’T SHE SEE I’M JUST A CHILD

CAN YOU PASS IT SITTING DOWN?
CAN YOU PASS IT WITH A CLOWN?

I CANNOT PASS IT SITTING DOWN?
I CANNOT PASS IT WITH A CLOWN?

CAN YOU PASS IT ON YOUR HEAD?
CAN YOU PASS IT IN YOUR BED?

I CANNOT PASS IT ON MY HEAD?
I CANNOT PASS IT IN MY BED?

CAN YOU PASS IT WITH NO TROUBLE?
CAN YOU FILL IN THE RIGHT BUBBLE?

I CANNOT PASS IT WITHOUT TROUBLE?
I CANNOT FILL IN THE RIGHT BUBBLE?

CAN YOU PASS IT IF WE RHYME?
CAN YOU PASS IT WITH MORE TIME?

I CANNOT PASS IT IF WE RHYME?
I CANNOT PASS IT WITH MORE TIME?
I CANNOT PASS THE STANDARD TEST
I CONNOT PASS IT,  MS. BEST

CAN YOU PASS IT ALL ALONE?
CAN YOU PASS IT WITH YOUR PHONE?
CAN YOU PASS IT OFF YOUR FEET?
CAN YOU PASS IT WITH A TREAT?
CAN YOU PASS IT IF IT’S FUNNY?
CAN YOU PASS IT FOR SOME MONEY?

I CANNOT PASS IT ALL ALONE
I CANNOT PASS IT ON THE PHONE
I CANNOT PASS IT OFF MY FEET
I CANNOT PASS IT WITH A TREAT
I CANNOT PASS IT IF IT’S FUNNY
I CANNOT PASS IT FOR SOME MONEY
I CANNOT PASS THE STANDARD TEST
I CONNOT PASS IT,  MS. BEST

WE CANNOT LEAVE  A CHILD BEHIND
IS IT SOMETHING WITH YOUR MIND

I CANNOT DO IT WITH MY MIND
I DO NOT WANT TO BE BEHIND
WHO INVENTED THIS CONTEST?
I’M FEELING QUITE DISTRESSED
I CANNOT PASS THE STANDARD TEST
I CONNOT PASS IT,  MS. BEST

DON’T YOU SEE THIS TEST IS CRUEL?
IS THIS ALL THERE IS A SCHOOL?
WHY CAN’T THERE BE A WAY TO TEACH?
SO ALL MY TALENTS YOU COULD REACH?

TESTS ARE NOT THE ONLY THING
HAVE YOU EVER HEARD ME SING?
IS THERE SOMETHING ELSE THAT I COULD DO, LIKE DO A PROJECT HERE AT SCHOOL?

I COULD WRITE A FUNNY PLAY
COMPOSE A SONG OR SCULPT WITH CLAY

I’LL BET I’M NOT THE ONLY ONE
WHO THINKS THESE TEST ARE NOT FUN!
JHONNY JONES CAN PLAY GREAT BALL
AT RUNNING SANDY BEATS US ALL
THERE’S ANDRE WHO CAN DRAW SO FINE
AND KRISTAL’S SOCIAL SKILL BEAT MINE
WE DO NOT ALL PERFORM THE SAME
WHY IS THIS TEST THE ONLY GAME?

THERE ARE MANY TALENTS. YOU ARE RIGHT
AND TAKING TESTS CAN BE A FRIGHT
YOU MUST RELAX. THINK OF ALL YOU KNOW
LET’S TRY AND GIVE THIS TEST A GO

WE EACH WILL DO OUR VERY BEST
WE CAN SUCCEED WITH THIS TEST
YOU CANNOT PASS IT, SO YOU SAY
WHY NOT TRY IT, BECAUSE YOU MAY

 IN MY HEAD I HAVE ONE MIND
IT’S THE ONLY ONE I CAN FIND
I’LL  HAVE TO TRY  TO DO MY BEST

I WANT TO PASS THE STANDARDS TEST
IF I DO, I’LL  BE IMPRESSED

I SEE THE TEST, IT WEIGHS A TON
I TURN THE PAGE AND WANT TO RUN
I GATHER COURAGE AND FACE MY FEAR
I TRY TO THINK SO VERY CLEAR

I TAKE ONE QUESTION AT A TIME
I PRETEND EACH ONE IS WORTH A DIME
I’LL BE RICH IF I PASS THIS TEST
I ADD THE DIMES AND DO MY BEST
AFTER THE TEST, I GET A SMILE
I HAVEN’T SEEN THAT IN QUITE A WELL
MS. BEST HOPES WE SUCCEED
NOW, A LONG RECESS IS WHAT WE NEED
I TOOK THE TEST AND EASE MY FEAR
AND NOW I’M FREE UNTIL NEXT YEAR
