Making The Grade
Whenever a teacher announces,
that I'll prob'ly be coming real soon,
Kids scramble for books, study 'specially hard,
Cuz they don't want to look like a goon.
Sometimes when a kid takes me home,
I'm displayed proudly up on a shelf.
But other kids don't give me credit at all,
but I don't give out credit myself.
You have to earn what you get from me,
I'm an honest reflection of you.
Your teacher writes down some big letters all based
on your work and the answers you knew.
So whether I'm covered with A's or with D's,
and whether you've passed or you've failed,
Just remember, not bringing me home doesn't work,
because hey, I can always be mailed.
WHAT AM I?
