Red Red Eyes

(A tribute to teachers to the tune of Red Red Wine)

Red red eyes, burn in my head

Make me forget that I

Should be in my bed

 

Red red lines are covering my eyes

I thought I was doing right

Grading papers all night

With red red eyes

 

I had sworn that with time

I would find my way to bed

I was wrong now I find

Just one thing makes me forget

Red red eyes

 

Stay closed for me

I can’t stay up all night

It’s tearing apart

My blue blue eyes

 

I had sworn that with time

I would find my way to bed

I was wrong, now I find

Just one thing makes me forget

Red red eyes

 

Oh how I need Visine

Help me to see again

Got papers to grade again

Through red red eyes

 

Shalom!
