    Helluva hullabaloo
    (Olla bolla domino)
    So much chaos in the classroom
    (Okay hockey)
    Just having a fit
    (Catch a tiger by the toe)
    Detention galore
    (If he hollers let him go)
    A hundred lines on the board
    (And a hundred tables underneath)

    Weary teasy peasy
    (The Ace of Spades and Hearts)
    Summons the schoolmistress
    (Foolish Miss Happ)
    Rings a bell to the headmaster
    (Now is the bitching hour)

    High-flying pieces of writing
    (This close but undisclosed)
    All school reports zeroed out
    (Quarters to none)
    Outpointing her dance cap
    (Right under his big dunce nose)
    All flawed ways condoned
    (How unapologetic)

    Haywire goes the uncool master
    (Eeny, meeny, miny, moe)
    Off the school ground
    (He'll go east, he'll go west)
    Lost his mind
    (He'll go to the crow's nest)
    But where is mine?


    NOTE: This is more a story telling variation than an accurate translation of the original in French, as you can imagine all these puns being literally untranslatable (and the other way round). But I certainly do enjoy a good challenge sometimes. For more fun, read it aloud!
