(dedicated to a friend who loves Carole King)

Everybody's doin' a brand new dance
Come on baby, do the Common Core
I know you'll get to hate it if you try to use it
Come on baby, do the Common Core

It’s scripted so anyone can do it with ease
It's easier than learning your ABC's
So come on, come on
Do the Common Core with me

You gotta be bored now
Come on students
Pay attention, pay attention
Oh well, I think you've got the knack

Not created by teachers, so anyone can teach it
Come on baby, do the Common Core
Not created by teachers, so anyone can teach it
Come on baby, do the Common Core

Do it nice and easy now and show no creativity
A whole lot of boredom for the kids and teachers
Come on, come on
Do the Common Core with the teachers

Stay in your seats and don’t fall asleep
Come on baby, do the Common Core
Do it while the lessons are one size fits all
Come on baby, do the Common Core

Never been lessons so easy to do
So boring that it makes you stare out the windows
Come on, come on
Do the Common Core with me

Come on, do the Common Core
Come on, do worthless tests
Come on, do the Common Core
Come on, do the worthless tests

Alright, let me hear you say yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah

I've said, hey now, hey now
I've said, hey now, hey now
I've said, hey hey now, hey hey now
I've said, yeah yeah, yeah yeah

Ohh ohh, ohh ohh
Ohh ohh, ohh ohh
Ohh ohh oh, ohh ohh oh
Let's go, go, go, go, go

Come on, do the Common Core
Come on, do the Common Core
Come on, do the Common Core
Come on, do the Common Core

Come on, do the Common Core
Come on, do the Common Core
Come on, do the Common Core
Come on, do the Common Core

I said come on, come on
Do the Common Core with me
