Gotta Go!
 
 


by Robert Pottle
 
   
I gotta go! I gotta go!
I’ll ask the teacher first.
I gotta go! I gotta go!
I think I’m gonna burst.

I gotta go! I gotta go!
I’d better raise my hand.
I gotta go! I gotta go!
But maybe I should stand.

I gotta go! I gotta go!
My hand is raised up high.
I gotta go! I gotta go!
I hope my pants stay dry.

I gotta go! I gotta go!
I’m really in a bind.
I gotta go! I gotta—
Uh-oh. Never mind.
