Woe is me

Apparently it's Back To School day in the USA, around now.

School's been out for the summer but now it's:

Woe is me, all summer long I was happy and free.
Save my soul, the board of education took away my parole.
I gotta go back, back, back to school again.

That second line (of verse two) scans particularly sweetly ("the BOARD of ED-u-CA-tion TOOK a-WAY my pa-ROLE").
