In summer they get six weeks off
Another two at Christmas break.
They say the job is hard? I scoff:
There surely must be some mistake.

When teachers say they work too long
Already, kicking up a fuss,
I never think I could be wrong
No, that would be ridiculous!

What was my training? They demand:
I went to school when I was small.
The teachers’ job I understand
There isn’t much to it at all.

These teachers go to work at nine
I’m pretty sure, and stop at three.
Some extra effort should be fine:
Why are they so upset with me?
