Better watch out, better not cry

🎝 You better watch out, you better not cry! ♪

My last Christmas program in 2013, the year I decided to call it quits.

♪ Better not pout, I’m telling you why. . . 🎝

Mrs. Morgan’s coming to school!

She’s making lesson plans,

And checking them out twice;

Gonna find the right standards

To teach them oh so nice.


[CHORUS]   You better watch out,

And follow directions,

So you can earn Tiger Tickets,

For your collection. . .

Mrs. Morgan’s coming to school!


She sees you when you’re reading,

She knows when you do math,

She knows if you’ve been working, 

So you better get right on task!

She sees you in the hallway,

She knows when you walk straight,

She knows if you’re on third block,

So your line better look so great!


She’s grading papers now,

in the middle of the night.

Recording all the data,

So the growth will be dynamite!


You better watch out

And follow directions

So you can earn Tiger Tickets

For your collection

Mrs. Morgan’s coming to school!!

Never say “never”.  This was one of my first major lessons in parenting that I’ve never forgotten.  It’s a good motto for life as well.  I wasn’t sure 3 years ago if I’d ever be in the classroom again.  Yet, thankfully, here I am.  (More on that topic coming soon).

I began to write this little tune many years ago, but this year I had the pleasure of adding new lyrics and performing it at our Teacher Talent Show.  I had sung it to my students, and they weren’t too impressed.  When I sang it this afternoon, I felt like a rock star.  I had been singing to the wrong audience.

Maybe you have been singing to the wrong audience too.  I’ve been trying to really concentrate on the only audience that matters:  my audience of One.  The One.  The King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  My Savior, my Father, my Jesus.

I hope this Christmas you can sing and perform for the only One that matters.  Merry Christmas!
