SIR EL YOU’RE AMAZING… JUST THE WAY YOU ARE

(In the tune of Just the Way You Are by Bruno Mars) 

Oh your eyes, your eyes look at us and always checking

Your smile, your smile we love to see it in the morning

You’re so wonderful.

And we tell you every day.

Yeah we know, we know

You work hard with your Edison staff

Your love for us leads on the right track.

And every time you straighten us it is ok

And we say…

When we see your face

There’s not a thing that we would change

Sir El you’re amazing just the way you are

And when you smile you inspire us all the time

Sir El you’re amazing just the way you are

Your rap, your rap every lunch time we look forward

Your jokes, your jokes are sometimes oh so awkward

You’re our principal

And we love you anyway

Oh you know, you know, you know

We never ask you to change

Your crazy love for us

Will always stay the same

Oh, you touch our hearts, you change our lives

Thank you for everything

When we see your face

There’s not a thing that we would change

Sir El you’re amazing just the way you are

When you smile you inspire us all the time

Sir El you’re amazing just the way you are.

The way you are

The way you are

Cause you’re amazing just the way you are

When we see your face

There’s not a thing that we would change

Sir El you’re amazing just the way you are
