"Bye, Mom, Bye, Spot, see you later."

Block 2, Block 3
My mom's still wavin' at me
4, 5, 6
The kids are all startin' to mix
7, 8, 9
I'm tryin' to keep from cryin'
10, count 'em 10
Man, I wish I was back home again!
Yeah, life can be so cruel
Goin' forty blocks to school
Forty blocks from my home

11, 12, 13
I'm singin' the homesick blues
14, 15, 16
I'm shakin' inside my new shoes
17, 18, 19
That's 19 streets of sorrow
20, count 'em 20
Gotta do it again tommorow!
Yeah, life can be so cruel
Goin' forty blocks to school
Forty blocks from my home

21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27
Feels like I left my stomach somewhere back there around 11
28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34
I can't go on much longer, man, but there's six blocks more!
We turn around a corner, Block 35 looks great
Now everybody's countin' off 36! 37! 38!
We roll into the parking lot at number 39
Pull up to the door at 40, hey, 40 feels just fine!
Yeah, 40's pretty cool
I went 40 blocks to school
Forty blocks from my home
Yeah, 40's pretty cool
I went 40 blocks to school
Forty blocks from my home!
Forty blocks from my home!
