Nyango sent this song with the note: "And here is a song that reminds me of my Primary School days whenever I sing it. In my mind's eye, I clearly see the low zinced roofs of the long row of classes that made up my primary school, the wide expanse of grass that made up our field where we played games, sang and danced, and assembled every morning for roll-call and announcements before marching off to our various classes singing..."

Notes

Nyango wrote: "Why 'caricature' (at the end of the song), I don't know. I guess the author of the song must have just loved the sound of the word 'caricature'."
