The Lunch Line Pioneer


(Sung to the tune of "The Yellow Rose of Texas")

In history class last Friday
I learned of pioneers
Who drove their covered wagons
Way out West for years.

Today the lunch line isn't moving,
And I'm starving as I stand.
And I'm thinking of them pioneers
And how they crossed our land.

I recall the Donner party
Getting plumb stuck in the snow,
So they started eating people
Just to make their hunger slow.

Although I am near starving,
It doesn't make much sense
For me to gnaw my classmates,
And my reason is immense!

See, I need my friends at recess
To play football in the yard.
And if I up and ate them,
Playing catch would be too hard.
