Today I’m not going to school,
I can’t face my lessons today,
problem is my Mum’s no fool,
she’s gonna make me go any way.

I can’t face my lessons today,
my fever’s a hundred and four,
she’s gonna make me go anyway,
Mum, I really can’t take any more.

My fever’s a hundred and four,
my eyes bulging out of my head,
Mum, I really can’t take any more,
please let me curl up in bed.

My eyes bulging out of my head,
my tongue is gone purple and green,
please let me curl up in bed,
I got spots like you never seen.

My tongue is gone purple and green,
problem is my Mum’s no fool,
I got spots like you never seen,
today I’m not going to school.
