New World

You know, today I want to talk with you seriously
About September, which is to come fast,
Because you will get a new life and you will be,
At the school where you will build an empire.

Will leave the books to be a mystery,
With letters, that you'll have to decipher
Forming so many words to teach you
The be able one a day, who knows, be a minister.

I know you're going to humbly learn
And have many friends who will be important.
With them a new world you will know.

And you will see one day, those distant days
And a wisdom will grow with you
And give yourself, triumphant moments.
