Painful Thing

Fourth graders at Workman wrote an original song about things in life that can sometimes be difficult. Students sing about love, school, and chores in this original tune:

Love is a painful thing
It can make your heart break
Yeah, it can heal you
Love is a painful thing
Ooh, ooh; love is a painful thing

School is a painful thing
It can make your head ache
Yeah, it can teach you
School is a painful thing
Ooh, ooh; school is a painful thing

Chores are a painful thing
It can make your hands shake
Yeah, it annoys you
Chores are a painful thing
Ooh, ooh; chores are a painful thing
