Lyrics by: Johnson Elementary Students

I got my ticket for the bus ride to school
Two sheets of homework for the way
And I sure would like to see all my friends,
So I'm staying at school until it ends!

When you're gone,
When you're gone,
You're gonna miss it if you're gone.
History, geometry,
All this learning is crazy, oh
You're gonna miss it if your gone.

When you're gone,
When you're gone,
You're gonna miss it if youre gone.
Don't be late, don't change your fate
All this learning is so great, oh
You're gonna miss it if youre gone

We're here at school and we're ready to learn
We'll try our best we know we can!
Its got reading its got math
Its got teachers that help you pass
But it sure would be better with you!

After winning last year's "Tick Tock -- Beat the Clock Truancy Video" Competition, Johnson Elementary is back at it! Following the rise of Anna Kendrick's radio hit "When I'm Gone (Cups)", the students at SCJ started learning about the history and various adaptations of the "Cup Song". We explored The Carter Family's first country version written in 1931, Lulu and the Lampshades first paring of the song and cup routine, and Anna Burden's homemade YouTube hit! The students at SCJ hope their take on this catchy song will be the next big hit! They hope you enjoy this pro-school take on "When I'm Gone (Cups)"!
