STRAWBERRY PLAINS, Tenn. (WATE) – A third grade teacher at Rush Strong School in Strawberry Plains, Tennessee is getting national attention for her parody of Adele’s “Hello.”

Mary Morris performed the song for teachers. After the video of her performing the song at a faculty meeting received hundreds of thousands of views, some of her friends helped her create a full music video.

Morris said she “never dreamed it would explode like this, but I’m glad it could brighten a few cold days!” The teacher regularly writes songs for students. Her other hits include the TCAP version of “Your Lips Are Movin’,” “Let It Go” and “It Feels LIke Fire in My Brain,” as well as a version of “Rumor Has It” written for her students taking CRA standardized math tests.

The response from other teachers has been overwhelmingly positive. “From one teacher to another…AMEN GIRL!  You hit it spot on,” said Mary.  “Your video is super awesome and should be the national snow anthem for all teachers,” writes Al.

The goal of most of Morris’ songs is to not only motivate the kids, but also poke fun. She performed a couple her parody videos at pep rallies to loud cheers from her students.

Full lyrics to song:

Snow, it’s me

I know we just got out for Christmas

But I’d really like some more time to myself, you see

So if you can come a day or two, or maybe 23

Oh snow, can you hear me

I’m inside my classroom dreaming about who it used to be

When we were younger and free

I’ve forgotten how the snow felt as it crunched beneath my feet

We need a snow day tomorrow

Or at least a good delay

If it’s got to be so cold

The least that it can do is snow

If I have to keep my students inside one more time

For recess, going to lose my mind

I love it when I get the call

That I don’t have to work at all

I can stay in bed, watch Netflix all day

I can even spend it in my PJs if I want

Snow, where are you?

It’s so typical of me to ask

If you can get a move on with the weather

You see, the kids are getting antsy and it’s rubbing off on me

It’s no secret that the both of us

Are running out of time

If it’s got to be so cold

The least that it can do is snow

If I have to keep my students inside one more time

For recess, going to lose my mind

I love it when I get the call

That I don’t have to work at all

I can stay in bed, watch Netflix all day

I can even spend it in my PJs if I want

If I want, Ooooohh

If I want, Ooooohh

If I want, Ooooohh

If I want, if I want

Take it from the teacher’s side

You won’t hear me apologize

For checking my cellphone every chance that I get

I get ready slowly, cause I’m holding my breath

There is no sound that is so sweet

As hearing salt trucks on the street

I can’t sleep in all day, until I wake up

We need lots of snow days

Not so much that we have to make them up
