EARLY CO., GA (WALB) -

The 2017-2018 school year is kicking off and teachers, students and parents are all getting prepared for the new classroom routine. Especially in Early County.

As educators met just ahead of the first day of classes in Early County, teachers were going through what could only be assumed as a routine slideshow.

But then, as if out of nowhere, a flash mob broke out.

One person after the other began to join in on the parody of the song "Lean on Me" originally written and performed by Bill Withers.

Instead of the usual lyrics to the classic song, the teachers sang lines like, "Teaching got me, like this day's so long. Will it ever end? How will I carry on?" As well as, "And... the copier's jammed. There's a full moon this week. The SmartBoard won't turn on." And "This meeting should be just an email but still, here we are."

You can see the full lyrics to the original version of "Lean on Me" on Google Play Music.

Clearly meant to just have some fun, the flash mob earned cheers and applause from others in the room.

The video was posted on the Early County Elementary School School's Facebook page.

The video has been viewed more than 442,000 times, it's been shared more than 6,500 times and has earned more than 2,500 reactions.
