Since I first came to Shadow Oaks, I’ve loved to go to school. 

But, when it came to spelling, it wasn’t very cool! 

Now that word Mississippi was awfully hard to spell 

But now I will convince you that I can spell it well! 

M-I-S  S-I-S  S-I-P-P-I 

That used to be so hard to spell, It almost made me cry,  

But since I’ve studied spelling, it’s just like pumpkin pie. 

M-I-S  S-I-S  S-I-P-P-I
