Hooray For Tom  (Album Version)

Hooray For Tom (Album Version)

Bruce Hornsby

Will it really help me to learn
About Frederick The Great and when Rome burned?
Wish they'd skip over me when it's my turn

All this useless information
So I can talk way above my station
And I lost when I couldn't spell congratulations

Well, hooray, hooray for Tom
Won the spelling bee
Spelled the difficult words so right
And now he's on TV

Oh, hooray, hooray for Tom
He's up there for all to see
And I hope someday they'll say hooray for me

Teach me long division
So I can figure out baseball stats
Batting average, fielding percentage and all that

Well I learned more at home okay
Learned how to scrap, learned some funny things to say
And I lost when I spelled be A-N-A-N-A-N-A

Well, hooray, hooray for Tom
Won the spelling bee
Spelled the difficult words so right
And now he's on TV

Hooray, hooray for Tom
He's up there for all to see
And I hope someday they'll say hooray for me

Hooray, hooray for Tom
Won the old spelling bee
Spelled the difficult words so right
Spelled the crepuscule so right
And now he's on TV

Hooray, hooray for Tom
He's up there for all to see
And I hope someday they'll say hooray
Hope someday they'll say hooray
Well, I hope someday they'll say hooray for me
