Story

This is what the kids thought might happen after school in the gym, art room and music room!

Lyrics

The After Hours Rock by Fourth Grade, Pleasant St., 1/10

    CHORUS:
    It’s something of a marathon, when doors are locked and clocks are wrong
    It’s after hours at the school when all the kids are gone…
    We don’t know how it happens, it’s magic we assume
    There are strange things goin’ on in the art room

The smart boards surf the internet, scissors cut the rug
Human forms fold airplanes and do the jitter bug
Tables and chairs play hide and seek, glitter and clay make a disco ball
Glue has a squirt gun fight out in the hall

    CHORUS:
    It’s something of a marathon, when doors are locked and clocks are wrong
    It’s after hours at the school when all the kids are gone…
    We don’t know how it happens, when all is said and done
    There are strange things goin’ on in the gymnasium

The bean bags fly across the room and turn on the stereo
Bouncing balls hit the lights, hula hoops sing “Here we go!”
Noodles on the climbing wall, jump ropes swing on the trampoline
Soccer balls stack themselves on the balance beam

    


    CHORUS:
    It’s something of a marathon, when doors are locked and clocks are wrong
    It’s after hours at the school when all the kids are gone…
    We don’t know how it happens, it’s magic we assume
    There are strange things goin’ on in the music room
    

Woodblocks wake when the cymbals crash, the piano starts to rock and roll
Chalk writes music on the board, kazoos are out of control
Rhythm sticks beat on the bongo drums, mallets pop out of the xylophones
Maracas do the macarena till the cowbells all come home

    CHORUS

The broken clocks begin to tick and make a lot of noise
The microphone calls to everyone, “Here come the girls and boys!”
Triangles talk to the hockey stick, “Come on now we must be quick”
The paintbrush waves good bye to the rain stick.

    The next night Mr. Biggs is there sweeping the floor
    Everything is quiet and still, as he closes the door….

    Hum the verse tune, kazoos play too etc…….fade out
