Molly Stark Kids Change The Words To Dierks Bentley’s “5150” To Sing About Their School In Bennington, Vermont – Reading, Writing, and Rhyming [AUDIO-VIDEO]

What a group! What a school! (I get yelled at with these articles for using the exclamation point too many times, but I don’t care.  What a FANTASTIC experience going to Molly Stark Elementary School in Bennington!!!!!!!!!!  (So there!!!!!!!)

Cathy Reed along with Ms. Setzer (not Seltzer), and Mrs. Mattison have my sincere gratitude for letting me come into their class and help them create a “jingle” about their school.  You can just feel the pride that they have, and it’s a great thing to see.

Lyrics to Molly Stark Song

Parody of “5150” by Dierks Bentley

The teachers help you learn, and that can help your brain.
You won’t believe all the knowledge that we gain!
Math, reading, homework, too- that drives us insane!
But we do not complain!

Here are things you should know,
Rain or shine, we love to go,
To Molly Stark!
To get good marks!

Field day, picture day,
Everyday we get to play,
Miss Setzer, Mattison and Reed,
Help us succeed.

We really love our school,
Molly Stark is really cool!
We’re here today, on GNA!
