Monday morning history, sixth grade buzzing around
One shy girl in the back of the room, hardly making a sound
In runs teacher carrying books, latte in one hand
Okay, here's the plan for today

Got a little pop quiz, got a question for you
Take out a pencil and paper, that's all you gotta do
Number down the left hand side of the page, one through seven, all right
Here we go, let’s see what you know

Can you name the seven wonders of the world?
Can you show me on our shiny globe?
The greatest tricks we've twirled
Can you name the seven wonders of the world?

The students started scribbling, time was tripping by
Fifteen minutes later, pens were dripping dry
"Who can tell us what they wrote?", hands began to wave

Can you name the seven wonders of the world?
Can you show me on our shiny globe?
The greatest tricks we've twirled
Can you name the seven wonders of the world?

Dave said "Egypt's Pyramids", Tom said "Taj Mahal"
Severin added Everest, Bob, Niagara Falls
Cindy put Grand Canyon, Vito, the Great Wall
Steve and Sloan, the Barrier Reef and Panama Canal

Everyone responded, but the one girl in the back
She was still quite busy writing, trying to get on track
The teacher ambled back to her desk

"Penny, what have you got?"

Can you name the seven wonders of the world?
Can you show me on our shiny globe?
The greatest tricks we've twirled
Can you name the seven wonders of the world?

This was kinda hard for me, I did the best I could
I think I've got it narrowed down from what I've understood
When I think of wonders, and all of humankind
Here are just some of the things that came into my mind

To touch and taste and feel, to hear, to smell, and see
To breathe and laugh and love someone are all wonders to me

The class fell silent as she spoke
Then they heard the teacher say
A, you got an A

Can you name the seven wonders of the world?
Can you show me on our shiny globe?
The greatest tricks we've twirled
Can you name the seven wonders of the world?
