It was just an ordinary day when I suddenly heard something strange
I knew somebody was walking down the hall
And he had a pencil in his hand and I knew that he did not understand
The sharpener won’t like it, no not at all

And I said...That pencil is too short
That pencil is too short, that pencil is too short

Then I saw another pencil going by and I’m telling you
I could not believe my eyes
If she tries to sharpen it, it might get stuck
So I let her know it was no good, a pencil really ought to have a lot more wood
Then I sent her on her way and wished her luck

Cause that pencil is too short
That pencil is too short, that pencil is too short

You gotta pay attention when you’re at the machine
Don’t fall asleep or dawdle and don’t daydream
Cause pencils disappear if you know what I mean

I hope you know I’m trying to help you out and tell you all what pencil sharpening is about
I’d hate to see it if you get you pencil jammed
Just take a look before you put your pencil in
Can you be sure that it’ll come back out again
Listen to me and I think you’ll understand

That pencil is too short, that pencil is too short
That pencil is too short
That pencil is too short, that pencil is too short
That pencil is too short, that pencil is too short
