Ichabod Crane

From "Sleepy Hollow: The Rock Opera"

Simple little kids with their simple little lessons
Feet, clock,
Play with the chalk
Fiddle with the pointer and wait

I don't want to see you looking so stupid
Bend quick
Ten with the stick
I don't need a reason to hate you

My years of disciplining kids have led to conclude
I'm not to spare the rod and spoil the mood

So bend to the cane of Icabod Crane
You could all learn a lesson or two
Well-bred, and certainly he's well-read
And he only reads things that he knows are true
And things that are plain to Icabod Crane
Are beyond the reach of people like you
My, isn't he a nice guy
Doesn't everybody think so
Me too.

Aren't you the kid with the mother with the pig farm
Tom, right
Well, you never were bright
A think a home tutor'd be best

Every Dutch mother is a sucker for a scholar
Thanks ma'am,
For seconds on ham
Leftovers go in the guest room

We need more clever little lads like Thomas at our school
'Cause my income breaks down to meals per fool.

So welcome to the brain of Icabod Crane
You could all learn a lesson or two
Well-bred, and certainly he's well-fed
Cause he chews the fat with people with the fat to chew
And things that pertain to Icabod Crane
Rarely ever make a difference to you
My, isn't he a nice guy
Doesn't everybody think so
Me too.

Behold and lo
You kids have no respect
For things that you don't know
The dark circles grow
So give Old Scratch his due
And watch out where you go
