It’s the most stressful time of the year

With the kids tattle-telling

And everyone yelling, “When will break be here?”

It’s the most stressful time of the year.

 

It’s the wack-wackiest season of all

With those faux happy greetings and silly staff meetings

When you have work to grade from fall

It’s the wack-wackiest season of all

 

There’ll be parties for hosting

Students we are coaxing

And threatening to go with the flow

They’ll scary past stories

And tales of the students

Who missed winter parties long ago

 

It’s the most stressful time of the year

There will be much test reviewing

And students are pacing

When finals are near

It’s the most stressful time of the year

 

There’ll be parties for hosting

Students we are coaxing

And threatening to go with the flow

They’ll scary past stories

And tales of the students

Who missed winter parties long ago

 

It’s the most stressful time of the year

There will be much test reviewing

And students are pacing

When finals are near

It’s the most stressful time

Yes the most stressful time

Oh the most stressful time

Of the year
