The Night Before School Starts


‘Twas the night before school starts,
And all through the city,
Parents were filled with joy.
They were downright giddy.

Children huddled in beds,
Many shed a tear.
Thoughts of returning to school
Filled them with fear.

All around the city,
Parents said what they love to say;
"Better get to bed now.
Tomorrow's a school day! "

Good-night? ah! no; the hour is ill
Which severs those it should unite;
Let us remain together still,
Then it will be good night.

How can I call the lone night good,
