To Mrs. Gorano From Her 1991-92 Fourth Grade Class (But I’m Not Saying Who).

Mrs. Gorano,
There’s something that I know,
And I don’t know if you know it too,
But you know what I know,
Mrs. Gorano,
I know to be absolute truth,

Do you know that your students were talkin’ ‘bout you,
Do you know what they said and do you know who,
Well, I’m going to tell you, that’s what I’m going to do,
No, I really shouldn’t tell, but I could give you a clue,

There once was a boy named Paul,
Who said these three things, said ‘em all,
“She gives us a lot of Math”,
I’m not kidding, he said that,
“And barely any homework and a lot of science too”,
I’m not saying who said it, but can you guess who,

But I wouldn’t rat on my friends, no, not in the least,
And to prove it I won’t tell you that Tegan said these,
“Mrs. Gorano is good at science and math, by the way,
But she gives us a lot of math, but that’s okay,
We like being smart and we love art,
And Mrs. Gorano is creative and smart”,

O’, for certain I can’t tell you at all who said this,
O’, no… not even if it really was Chris,
He said, “she is good at science, sometimes she is hard,
She does a lot of things”, but he didn’t say what they are,

If I didn’t know better I’d say someone’s a fink,
‘Cos somebody said what Valencia thinks,
She said, “she looks nice and she is very tall”,
Can you believe it… she said that, I can’t believe it at all,

“Good science teacher, nice, smart, mother of two”,
Do you know who said these things about you,
“Wears dresses a lot, gives a lot of math”,
I’m not saying who, but don’t think Shawna said that,

And then, Mrs. Gorano, o’ my goodness… and then,
Someone said, “she attracts a lot of men”,
O’, but I could never tell you, not ever… not me,
But I will tell you that his name rhymes with Keith,

O’, Mrs. Gorano, now you know what I know,
And now I know you know it too,
And you know what I know,
Mrs. Gorano,
I know to be absolute truth,

But there’s something that I know,
Mrs. Gorano,
That you do not know in the least,
I know who said those things, Mrs. Gorano,
But I’ll never tell… no, not me.
