Education Song

Lyrics by: Nora Freeman
Gaggle: NYC Metro
Tune: The Alphabet Song

 
 

A B C D E F G

Don’t you take my school from me

Charters don’t take every kid

But you fund them like they did

No more bubbling standardized tests

They don’t measure real progress

 

Like rich kids I need the arts

Modern labs would be a start

Some of us have special needs, but

All are flowers, none are weeds

Educate each one of us

Don’t send us to the back-of-the-bus!

 

In nineteen hundred fifty four

Supreme Court opened schoolhouse doors

To students of every race

Don’t bring back the bad old days

Education’s an expense that

Costs far less than ignorance
