Woke up this morning and got outa bed.
Jumped in the shower and washed my head
Put on my clothes and made up my bed
Crammed down my breakfast left my spelling unread
Hopped on the bus, headed straight to the back
Got in trouble and tore my back pack

Sent to the office like I was to blame
Given detention, man that's really lame
Smiled at the teacher like nothing was wrong
Sat at my desk and started writing this song
Whoah the recess blues

(chorus)
Recess, recess, that's what I'd rather do
Reading, spelling, don't have a clue
Recess, recess, that's what I'd rather do
It's all enough to make a kid really blue

Ya, ya, ya, ya.......

Bell rang out telling us it was lunch
Got into a food fight with my favorite bunch
Back to the office for a lecture or two
Principal said, more detention for you
Passed my older brother in the halls today
All he said was get out of my way

Told all his friends that I was so dumb
cause I had failed Nap Time 101
My parents put me in extended day
So I could get my energy out of the way
Whoah the recess blues

(chorus)
Recess, recess, that's what I'd rather do
Reading, spelling, don't have a clue
Recess, recess, that's what I'd rather do
It's all enough to make a kid really blue

Ya, ya, ya, ya.......

Played some games and sang a few songs
Before the school bus came rolling along
My Mom asked me how was my day
I got into trouble so what could I say
Thought for a minute then made up a lie
If they take my recess I’m gonna die

(chorus)
Recess, recess, that's what I'd rather do
Reading, spelling, don't have a clue
Recess, recess, that's what I'd rather do
It's all enough to make a kid really blue
