Play Song
I'll awake at dawn
On an autumn day,
For I will not doze
Precious time away;
With my lesson learned,
This shall be my rule:
Never to be late
When I go to school!

Birds awake each morn,
And they start to sing;
None are tardy then,
When the woods do ring;
So when daylight peeps,
I'll recall my rule:
Never to be late
When I go to school!

When the spring's bright sun
Wakes the flow'rs again,
They are quick to stir,
None are tardy then;
And I won't forget
That it is my rule:
Never to be late
When I go to school!

Oh, these precious days
Will too soon be o'er,
And these happy hours
Will return no more;
Then I'll be so proud
That it was my rule:
Never to be late
When I went to school!
