Tracy: Wouldn't you like to learn to say your ABC's?
Jay Jay: And learn to read just what you please?
Tracy: Wouldn't you like to know,
What makes a river flow?
Jay Jay: And how a hive of honey comes from bees?

Wouldn't you like to find out how a planet spins around?
Tracy: Or how a single letter makes a sound?
Jay Jay and Tracy: If you like some special friends,
Then, there's a place I'd recommend:
It's the very merry Michael O. Tarry School.

Tracy: Wouldn't you like to learn to paint a bright, blue sky?
Jay Jay: And how a heavy hummingbird can fly?
Snuffy: What if I'm scared?
Tracy: What if it's fun?
Snuffy: What if I'm slow?
Jay Jay: What if you won?
Jay Jay and Tracy: At the very merry Michael O. Tarry,
Ask someone who's been there already,
Very merry Michael O. Tarry School!

Tracy: It's so cool!

Jay Jay and Tracy: That's the very merry Michael O. Tarry School!
