Rasputina – Girls' School lyrics

A happy start a sad sad ending
For every minute of the story
See as their wills are broke and bending
See the good girls in their glory

Teaching finishing rinse, and dancing tips, and scorn
Always concerned with plummeting virginity rates
A primary academy we're a second seminary

We lecture young girls on how babies are born
Children, make a chain! Oh, children make a chain!
The staff here is severe, yet so altruistic

It hurts us more than it hurts them
The new girls are tender, the old ones sadistic
The late janitress was a gem

Don't belive what the boys from next door heard
We draw straws and put our best foot forward
Requirements do include maths

Down the straight and narrow path
Listen to our pretty song
Forget the things you thought you knew
We are happy as the day is long

We'll make a very good girl of you (x2)
A pupil transferred here from Lavenderlake
She wrote a winning essay on self-denial
Some underage urchins were forced to matriculate,
Their records kept here undefiled

Which little girl made the plan?
Surely involved were the vespers bell-ringers
A neat retreat slips through their fingers

Down a ladder, through the gate, then they ran!
Listen to our pretty song,
We are happy as the day is long
We'll make a very good girl of you (x2)
Forget the things you thought you knew,

"I'm scared!" said the littlest one.
"Don't worry." said the leader.
... And the girls ran out of the schoolyard and up the hill behind.
But they can never crush our spirit! ""They could catch us, or they could kill us,
