Now Billy Joe McGuffrey was a really clumsy kid.
On the first day of first grade, I'll tell you what he did.
He tripped over a pencil box and flew up in the air,
Landed on a kangaroo who pulled out all his hair.
He needed first aide, in the first grade.
First aide, in the first grade.
First aide, in the first grade.
You could buy a zoo with all the doctor bills he payed.
Oh, Billy Joe McGuffrey was a really clumsy kid.
On the second day of second grade, I'll tell you what he did.
He slipped on a banana peel and flew up in the sky,
Landed on a chimpanzee who poked him in the eye.
He needed first aide, in the second grade.
First aide, in the second grade.
First aide, in the second grade.
You could buy a zoo with all the doctor bills he payed.
Now, Billy Joe McGuffrey was a really clumsy kid,
On the third day of third grade I'll tell you what he did.
He fell out of a fishing boat, splashed into the sea...
Landed on a moray eel who bit him on the knee.
He needed first aide, in the third grade.
First aide, in the third grade.
First aide, in the third grade.
You could buy a zoo with all the doctor bills he payed.
12th grade!
Now, Billy Joe McGuffrey was a really clumsy kid,
On the twelfth day of tweltfth grade I'll tell you what he did.
Walked into financial aide, fell and broke a bone.
Showed them all his bills and got a great big college loan
He needed first aide, in the twelfth grade.
First aide, in the twelfth grade.
First aide, in the twelth grade.
You could buy a zoo with all the doctor bills he payed.
You could buy a zoo with all the doctor bills he payed.
