Panthers fans love their Cam Newton and his dabbing. For as much as the quarterback was criticized for his signature gesture, "dabbing" has infiltrated even the most innocent, gentle-hearted corners of the world -- yes, first-grade classrooms.
At Wilmington, North Carolina's Parsley Elementary, the school's music teacher helped kids rewrite the lyrics of "She'll Be Comin' Round The Mountain When She Comes" to instead be about Cam Newton and Carolina's Super Bowl 50 appearance.
The result is predictably cute.
Last Monday, Mrs. Avery, music teacher, and Mrs. Dixon’s first grade class composed new lyrics to the tune of “She’ll be Comin’ Round the Mountain” to celebrate the Carolina Panthers win versus the Arizona Cardinals. Today, with the excitement of the Superbowl this weekend, Mrs. Avery and the students would like to share this performance with you!#CarolinaPanthers #superbowl #KeepPounding

"Today, with the excitement of the Superbowl this weekend, Mrs. Avery and the students would like to share this performance with you!" writes the school on the Facebook post.
Of course, this signals the continued the dab's swift transition to cultural irrelevance, since gap-toothed children and most people's mothers are now dabbing with glee, oftentimes without any clue as to where the move originated.
But hey, if it's going to be rendered meaningless, let this classroom of kids deliver the knockout punch.
What these kids lack in coordination, they more than make up for with a shouted monotone that only young children are capable of performing. Well done, kids.
