Bruce Hornsby – Hooray For Tom lyrics
Hooray for Tom

B. Are. Hornsby

Will it really help me to learn
About Frederick the Great and when Rome burned?
Wish they'd skip over me when it's my turn
All this useless information so I can talk way above my station
And I lost when I couldn't spell "Congratulations"

Well, Hooray, Hooray for Tom
Who won the spelling bee
Spelled the difficult words so right
And now he's on tv.
Oh Hooray, Hooray for Tom
He's up there for all to see
And I hope someday they'll say hooray for me.

Teach me long division
So I can figure out baseball stats
Batting average, fielding percentage and all that
Well I learned more at home ok
Learned how to scrap, learned some funny things to say
And I lost when I spelled "B-A-N-A-N-A-N-A".

Well, Hooray, Hooray for Tom
Who won the spelling bee
Spelled the difficult words so right
And now he's on tv.
Hooray, Hooray for Tom
He's up there for all to see
And I hope someday they'll say hooray for me.

Hooray, Hooray for Tom
Who won the old spelling bee
Spelled the difficult words so right
Spelled the crepuscule so right
And now he's on tv.
Hooray, Hooray for Tom
He's up there for all to see
And I hope someday they'll say hooray
Hope someday they'll say hooray
Well I hope someday they'll say hooray for me.
