Fall Out Boy approves teacher’s re-working of “Sugar, We’re Goin’ Down”

Fall Out Boy has given a seal of approval to one teacher’s viral version of “Sugar, We’re Goin’ Down.”

Earlier this week, a video of the teacher named Katie singing a classroom-themed rendition of the 2005 single surfaced on Twitter, and has since racked up over 11,000 retweets.

In the video, Katie, who goes by the handle @TeachonTables, leads her students in a singalong of “Sugar,” with lyrics such as “In fifth grade, no matter what time of day, whether we’re writing, dividing or reading/When someone starts teaching or speaking/We stop what we’re doing, sit up straight and listen” in place of the original’s chorus.

Eventually, the video reached the eyes of Fall Out Boy themselves, who tweeted, “Best. Teacher. Ever.”

“AHHHHHHHHH thank you so much!!!!!!” Katie replied. “That song is the biggest jam, and my kids loved it too!!!”
