Music by Gus Edwards; Lyrics by Will D. Cobb, 1907

School days, school days

Dear old golden rule days

Readin' and 'ritin' and 'rithmetic

Taught to the tune of the hickory stick

You were my queen in calico

I was your bashful barefoot beau

And you wrote on my slate

"I love you, so"

When we were a couple of kids

Nothing to do, Nellie Darling

Nothing to do you say

Let's take a trip on memory's ship

Back to the bygone days

Sail to the old village school house

Anchor outside the school door

Look in and see

There's you and there's me

A couple of kids once more

School days, school days

Dear old golden rule days

Readin' and 'ritin' and 'rithmetic

Taught to the tune of the hickory stick

You were my queen in calico

I was your bashful barefoot beau

And you wrote on my slate

"I love you, so"

When we were a couple of kids

'Member the hill

Nellie Darling

And the oak tree

That grew on its brow

They've built forty storeys

Upon that old hill

And the oak's an old chestnut now

'Member the meadows

So green, dear

So fragrant with clover and maize

Into new city lots

And preferred business plots

They've cut them up

Since those days

School days, school days

Dear old golden rule days.

Readin' and 'ritin' and 'rithmetic

Taught to the tune of the hickory stick

You were my queen in calico

I was your bashful barefoot beau

And you wrote on my slate

"I love you, so"

When we were a couple of kids

    William, This new series with the old look is definitely your forte - so clear, so quiet, so classic. These are so moving and beautiful. Every one, a masterpiece.The song lyrics are the eprfect nostaligic touch. These are simply the entire package - perfect.
