Bless 'em all! Bless 'em all!
The long and the short and the tall.
Bless all the tradesmen, the feminine ones,
Bless all the farmers and their blinking sons,
'Cos we're saying " Good Luck " to you all,
As back to the old School you crawl;
You'll get no more caning,
To help with your training;
So cheer up, old mates,
Bless 'em all!


An apple for the teacher will always do the trick, When you don't know your lesson in arithmetic, An apple for the teacher will meet with great success If you forget to memorise the Gettysburg address : A little bit of glamour, a charm that's cute and quaint, And he'll excuse your grammar and believe you're what you ain't;.

You may be just a lemon, but he'll think you're a peach, Just bring an apple for the teacher when he starts to teach.
