Don't tell the others that by summer's end I spent more time reading than playing

Hooray, hooray yes today is the day
The last day of school and now time to play
Oh, I'll miss all my friends and even Ms. Bliss
But not all the homework, no that I won't miss
We're done with our books and using our head
Now we'll play until dark then watch TV in bed
Hurry, hurry there's so much to do
We have castles to storm and dragons to slew
And now it's July, nothing's left unexplored
All day all I say is mom I'm so bored

I suspect you realized this when you wrote it, but "slew" is a past tense, which makes it fit the rhyme, but not the meaning.

One possible fix would be to change the previous line to "Hurry! There's so much to do every day!" so you can rhyme with "slay."
