The Note

By Cathy Block

    Oh my Gosh!
    She’s gonna make me read this…
    I really don’t need this
    I can’t believe this is happening to me!

    If Jen had been a little faster
    The note would have made it past her
    And she wouldn’t have noticed it
    But there was a little mess up
    Now I’ve got to fess up
    How will I ever get over this

    I feel so nervous might pass out
    Hey, that’s not a bad way out
    I guess this is my final bow
    We should just plan my funeral now

    I can see tomorrow’s headlines now:
    Girl 10 dies from embarrassment after reading note!
    Oh it’s so sad! Look at everybody!
    She was so nice…
    Yeah, I used to copy off her math paper…
    She once shared her M&M’s with me…
    I never knew I had so many friends!

    Take me back to the last class, an hour ago
    When life was sweet before the note
    Here it ends before I’m old enough to vote
    All because that stupid note!

    I had such a promising future!

    As I prepare for the end now
    Let me just say now
    I’ve tried to be true without fail
    And to my classmates
    Don’t make the same mistake
    Next time just use E-mail

    In just a moment I’ll be at rest
    At least I’ll miss that spelling test
    I’ll catch my breath and here I go
    I’ll stand up tall and read the note

    Oh I feel faint…

    Fare thee well to my dear friends
    I am sorry this is how it had to end
    Sometimes you’re high sometimes you’re low
    Sometimes you die all because of a stupid note

    Repeat 1st chorus
