EBACC, EBACC, EBACCALAUREATES ARE HERE


UK Education Secretary Michael Gove announces changes to school examinations, with GCSEs being replaced - hmmm, a little Beatles & Village People came to mind.......

EBACC, EBACC

Gove, Gove was a man who thought he knew the answer
To improve examinations in schools
Gove, Gove’s on a mission to overhaul the system
With harder tests and tough marking rules

EBacC, EBacC, EBaccalaureates are here
EBacC, EBacC, EBaccalaureates are here

Someone should have told him to simplify the language
But Gove is fond of complicated babble
Once we get the hang of this high-fangled wording
It could be a game-changer in Scrabble

EBacC, EBacC, EBaccalaureates are here
EBacC, EBacC, EBaccalaureates are here

EbacC, Gove, Gove,
The teachers are waiting,
For the latest changes
From the examination setter

EBacC, EBacC, EBaccalaureates are here
EBacC, EBacC, EBaccalaureates are here

ALL WE'VE GOT IS GOVE


Gove, Gove, Gove,
Gove, Gove, Gove,
There’s nothing he can’t do to education
There's nothing he can’t do to save the nation
Nothing you can say to change his EBacC test
Nothing you can say as GCSEs are laid to rest

It’s changing.

The old exams are brushed out of the way
Baccalaureates are on the way
No point in trying to hold on to the past,
Just learn the world has changed but learn it fast
Nothing you and me can do to stop wee Mickey G –

It's not easy.

All we’ve got is Gove, (da, da, da, da, da)
crickey, cripes, by Jove, (da, da, da, da, da)
All we’ve got is Gove, Gove, Gove is all we’ve got.

All we’ve got is Gove, (da, da, da, da, da)
crickey, cripes, by Jove, (da, da, da, da, da)
All we’ve got is Gove, Gove, Gove is all we’ve got

G-C-S-E

Students, something new’s on the way,
I said, students, here comes a new day,
I said, students, get your tongues round the word
It’s Bacc-a-laureates

Students, a new system for schools,
I said, students, sort the brains from the fools,
I said, students, keep your minds on the work,
Michael Gove is watching

So say goodbye to the G-C-S-Es
Say goodbye to the G-C-S-Es,
There’s so much to enjoy for each girl and each boy
Certificates of joy

Etc, etc
