New York Teachers Perform Parody Targeting Common Core & Cuomo

Some teachers and administrators for the Bay Shore School District in Bay Shore, NY sung a light-hearted parody targeting Common Core, Governor Andrew Cuomo, and opt-outs. The song titled “Welcome Back Bay Shore Teachers” was set to the tune of “Summer Nights” from the musical Grease. They performed this during the Superintendent’s Conference Day held the day before school started in the district.

Here are some of the lyrics….

Summer’s over, had me a blast.

Summer’s over, happened so fast.

Yesterday, I’m in the Keys.

Yesterday, I was at ease.

Summer’s gone, now back to school.

Oh no now think about Common Core.

Common Core… Common Core…

Cuomo isn’t our friend.

Common Core… Common Core..

When does his 2nd term end?

Governor Cuomo sure likes to spend.

He proposes cuts till the end.

He struts his stuff in Albany!

Treats New York like his property!

Summer’s gone, now back to school.

Oh no how I hate Conference Day.

Conference Day. Conference Day.

Joe Bond (their superintendent) seems kind of cool.

Conference Day. Conference Day.

Not as cool as the pool.

Administrators drone on and on.

All their speeches cause me to yawn.

I hope somebody pulls the alarm.

A fire drill won’t cause no harm.

Summer’s gone, now back to school.

Oh no no here come all of the stats.

Here’s a stat. Here’s a stat.

Oh the numbers don’t lie.

Here’s a stat. Here’s a stat.

Tell us what they imply?

Shoo Da Bop Bop

Shoo Da Bop Bop

Shoo Da Bop Bop

Shoo Da Bop Bop

Shoo Da Bop Bop

Shoo Da Bop Bop

Yeah!

SAT scores are highest throughout.

By the thousands they opted out.

SLO’s don’t mean a thing!

The teachers know how to make the kids sing!

Summer’s gone, now back to school.

Oh thank God, I think we’ve come to the end!

Wake me up. Wake me up.

When we get to the end.

Wake me up. Wake me up.

Did my snoring offend!?

If you haven’t seen if invest a few minutes, it’s fun to watch. Kudos to whoever came up with this.
