Rockin' for a Settlement

"We’re trying to make a living,
And we’re at the bottom of the scale,
If they don’t offer more,
Then we’re all going to bail!"

These lyrics sound like they were written about Yucaipa teachers but actually its our colleagues up north in Hayward. Like Yucaipa teachers, Hayward teachers find themselves at the dead last when compared to surrounding districts.

Yucaipa teachers are likely to be singing "Hit the road Mitch and don't you come back no more, no more, no more, no more..."

Where's Chris Thayer when we need him? Oh that's right, he already left for a better position at Arroyo!

"A little ditty about Jim and Joyella",
"Two Board Members, doin' the best they can."
"Jim is gonna be a business star."

You know the rest!
(Apologies to John Cougar Mellenkamp!)

"Let it rock
and let it roll
Let the offer change,
c'mon and save our souls
Hold onto fantasies as long as you can,
Changes come around real soon - bring new women and men"

Apologies to John Cougar Mellenkamp

"Wastin' away again in Mitch and Sherryville,
Lookin' for my lost COLA and all,
Some people say that it's the School Board to blame, but I know,
It's all of their faults."

Apologies to Jimmy Buffett

"There once was a Board from Yucaipa..."

No, that'll never work!

"It's The Hard Knock Life"

It's the hard knock life...
It's the hard knock life..

It's the hard-knock life for us
It's the hard-knock life for us

Steada treated,
We get tricked
Steada COLA,
We get kicked
It's the hard-knock life!

Got no board members to speak of, so
It's the hard knock row we hoe
Empty wallets ..steada full

Empty bellies ..steada full!
It's the hard-knock life

Don't if feel like the wind is always howlin?
Don't it seem like there's never any light??
Once a day, don't you wanna throw the towel in?
It's easier than puttin' up a fight

It's the hard-knock life for us
It's the hard-knock life for us
No one on Third Street care for you
They lie and say your pay is Number Two
It's the hard-knock life
It's the hard-knock life
It's the hard-knock life!
