 Become A Better Singer In Only 30 Days, With Easy Video Lessons!

Wake up, wipe your eyes, brush your teeth, drive
Show up half asleep, better be on time
Take a seat, take notes, hush don't interrupt
Don't interact, you're dumb if you don't give a what
A dunce hat if you can't keep up with the rest
Study up, like ya didn't have enough of your stress
Go home exhausted
Take a break, never mind
Gotta cram all this study guide
Sit down and memorize
Page and page, you just pray your brain
Can keep it all, fake it until you make it k?
Go ahead and ask questions, hold back the class
Or keep it quiet, either way you still have to pass
You still have to go learn ton of facts you won't
Remember when you graduate because you have to grow
Have bills to pay, disappointed because
You just wonder what the point of it was
Mama used to tell me that I had to stay in school
To be successful
But I'm a little older and I don't think that's true
It ain't essential
Mama used to tell me only those who have degrees
Will ever make it
But I'm a little older and I don't agree
You gotta chase it
This isn't the Industrial Age anymore
Times change, we aren't factory trained anymore
So our values are different
We gotta change with it
It's this lack of control that's what's bad in the system
You do this, but only when you're told to do
You speak only when you're spoken to
Follow steps, stay in line or stay neutral
Get a gold star up on your report card for approval
Or we demotivate children by our test scores
Give a grade, then we movin' on to the next course
None of this sounds like the best step forward
You offer them riches but you left some poor
You wanna raise leaders but you left some behind
There may be new buildings but you kept the design
Our government's tryna cut off funds from our youth
Buncha idiots forgetting you were one of them too
Mama used to tell me that I had to stay in school
To be successful
But I'm a little older and I don't think that's true
It ain't essential
Mama used to tell me only those who have degrees
Will ever make it
But I'm a little older and I don't agree
You gotta chase it
The system was built to keep us down man
Chop Suey'd on this bitch, Britney Spears Oops I did it again
I'm off topic, I'm acting out inside this Hot Topic
Lunch detention, tardies was the only option
Look at all these white faces
Teaching us where our place is
Showing us our ranking among the races
Places please
They put me inside of a box
Full of beans, stereotypes and random fights, my beaner
My Daddy spoke English, but some of y'alls parents didn't
They put you inside of programs and nobody would explain it
It's kinda funny how they blame you
When they teach the same shit they did in 1982
That shit just makes me sad
That kid's will never learn about themselves or delve
Into their people's contributions, damn
I might as well just join a gang in search of some sense of belonging
In the whitewashed history of man
Mama used to tell me that I had to stay in school
To be successful
But I'm a little older and I don't think that's true
It ain't essential
Mama used to tell me only those who have degrees
Will ever make it
But I'm a little older and I don't agree
You gotta chase it
