On With the Show

A song for one of the greatest teachers on earth

By Christopher Owens

Hail to the Chief!

The unsung hero of old.

Long live the King, King of Kings

With his mighty wisdom and heart of gold.

Oh Captain, my Captain

This ship cannot sail without you.

Through battered acts and weathered lines

You always help us arrive on cue.

ON WITH THE SHOW!

The lights are on

The curtains have begun to rise.

The spotlight, the sun of the stage

Burns brightly in our eyes.

The house is full

Smiling faces in the light.

We are here and we have you to thank

You're the reason for opening night.

CHORUS:

Hail to the Chief!

The unsung hero of old.

Long live the King, King of Kings

With his mighty wisdom and heart of gold.

Oh Captain, my Captain

This ship cannot sail without you.

Through battered acts and weathered lines

You always help us arrive on cue.

ON WITH THE SHOW!

Your flawless direction

Breathed life into the show.

We could have left it all behind

But you refused to let it go.

We sing we dance we laugh

We love to go with the jive.

This performance can truly be considered

The show of our young lives.

CHORUS:

Hail to the Chief!

The unsung hero of old.

Long live the King, King of Kings

With his mighty wisdom and heart of gold.

Oh Captain, my Captain

This ship cannot sail without you.

Through battered acts and weathered lines

You always help us arrive on cue.

ON WITH THE SHOW!

The curtain falls on the cast

But the show has just begun.

We will make sure that your opus

Will never be done.

Your work is heralded, your friendship treasured.

There is so much that you do.

Let us take some of that kindness

And give it back to you.

CHORUS:

Hail to the Chief!

The unsung hero of old.

Long live the King, King of Kings

With his mighty wisdom and heart of gold.

Oh Captain, my Captain

This ship cannot sail without you.

Through battered acts and weathered lines

You always help us arrive on cue.

ON WITH THE SHOW!

CHORUS:

Hail to the Chief!

The unsung hero of old.

Long live the King, King of Kings

With his mighty wisdom and heart of gold.

Oh Captain, my Captain

This ship cannot sail without you.

Through battered acts and weathered lines

You always help us arrive on cue.

ON WITH THE SHOW!
