A teacher who lives in Westcliff On Sea has written and recorded a song all about her profession in a single day for a Twitter challenge, and the end result is pretty good!

We’re no experts when it comes to music, but we can appreciate the effort that must go into getting it all done between breakfast and bedtime.

Under the #VirtualTwitterRockBand hashtag, Lucy Rycroft-Smith, 32, came up with It’s Your Own Time You’re Wasting – an old-fashioned but nonetheless popular phrase that can still be heard across the profession.

Here are the lyrics:

Well 10B, you’ve done it now
It’s obvious that none of you are listening
I’ve been yelling incoherently
About taking responsibility
On most of you my angry saliva’s glistening

Well 10B, I’m striding up and down
It’s obvious that none of you are listening
I’ve been ranting irresponsibly
About my career trajectory
My prospects for Head are visibly diminishing

I feel my mouth begin to form the words and I can’t stop it
I’m losing control of the ball and I’m going to drop it

“It’s your own time you’re wasting”
As I sit down emphatically
“It’s your own time you’re wasting”
And I realise as I widen my eyes
The undoubted loser in this situation is me

Well 10B, you’ve done it now
It’s obvious that none of you are listening
I’m now eyeing the door dejectedly
In case a Learning Walk comes to wretched me
This class is not one I’d like anybody witnessing

I feel my mouth being to form the words and I can’t stop it
I’m losing control of the ball and I’m going to drop it

“It’s your own time you’re wasting”
As I sit down emphatically
“It’s your own time you’re wasting”
And I realise as I widen my eyes
The undoubted loser in this situation is me

But it’s seven minutes to the bell
I just have to wait seven minutes for an ending to this hell…

“It’s your own time you’re wasting”
As I sit down emphatically
“It’s your own time you’re wasting”
And I realise as I widen my eyes
The undoubted obvious cretinous idiot smug and self-satisfied lazy self-pitying..
Clearly the loser is….me
