Special-Needs Carol 10: There Goes Routine

(to the tune of "Here Comes Santa Claus")

There goes routine,
There goes comfort,
There goes therapy.
Here comes boredom,
Here comes whining,
There goes sanity!

School break's here
And I should cheer
The time to spend with my kids.
But though I bless
I feel like I'm losing my wits.

But here comes New Year's.
Here comes three cheers,
Here comes tears of joy.
Get the backpacks,
Meet the buses,
Goodbye, girls and boys!

Though it means
More homework scenes
And teacher battles and such.
Ending Christmas break
Can make me
Love that school so much!
