Globe Patriots writer Shalise Manza Young got a tweet with a video sent by a Natick second grade teacher that we had to share.

The video features a class of second graders from Lilja Elementary School in Natick celebrating the Patriots and Tom Brady, featuring a re-write of "Call Me Maybe.''

"Hey, it's the playoffs. We're going craaaazy. But 12's his number. So call Tom Brady,'' the young fans sing.

The caption on the You Tube post offers a little background:

"Second graders from Lilja Elementary School in Natick, MA have Patriots Pride! They showed it by rewriting the lyrics to "Call Me Maybe" (they did it all by themselves!) Check it out!''

"They are my students!'' tweeted teacher Jessie Bloch. "We celebrate Patriots Pride every Friday!''

In an interview, Bloch said she is a lifelong Patriots fan and season ticket holder. Her class wrote a shorter version of the song before the Patriots game with the Texans, and put together a longer version after the win.

She is fine with us posting the video: "They worked really hard & will be thrilled to see their efforts acknowledged.''

Here are the lyrics:

“Call Tom Brady”
Lyrics by the students of Room 2B, Lilja Elementary in Natick

Tom threw the ball down the field,
his players, they never yield
Wes caught the ball with one hand
and said get out of my way

I’d trade my soul for a win
too bad that you’re a Raven
bet you’re expecting to win
but you got in our way

Hey, ref, that was holdin’
penalty flags were throwin’
cold night, wind was blowin’
fans were cheering “Go Tom Brady!”

Hey it’s the playoffs
we’re going crazy
but 12’s his number
so call Tom Brady

It’s hard to beat him
cuz he’s amazing
but 12’s his number
so call Tom Brady

Hey it’s the playoffs
we’re going crazy
but 12’s his number
so call Tom Brady

And all the other teams
are just lazy
but 12’s his number
so call Tom Brady

We took our time with the ball
our defense, they’ll make you fall
we always give it our all
better get out of our way

Run, kick and throw down the field
the Pats, man, they are for real
watch out our D just might steal
the ball right out of your way

Hey, ref, that was holdin’
penalty flags were throwin’
cold night, wind was blowin’
fans were cheering “Go Tom Brady!”

Hey it’s the playoffs
we’re going crazy
but 12’s his number
so call Tom Brady

It’s hard to beat him
cuz he’s amazing
but 12’s his number
so call Tom Brady

Hey it’s the playoffs
we’re going crazy
but 12’s his number
so call Tom Brady

And all the other teams
are just lazy
but 12’s his number
so call Tom Brady

When Tom got hurt in 08
we missed him so bad
and he should know that
we missed him so, so bad

Now Gronk broke his arm again
we’ll miss him so bad
and he should know that
we’ll miss him so, so bad

It’s hard to beat him
cuz he’s amazing
but 12’s his number
so call Tom Brady

Hey it’s the playoffs
we’re going crazy
but 12’s his number
so call Tom Brady

And all the other teams
are just lazy
but 12’s his number
so call Tom Brady!

GO PATRIOTS - BEAT THE RAVENS!!!
