They just gave up on our entire generation

So we were all pushed to the side

’cause we didn’t see the world through our teacher’s eyes

When all we needed was a little bit of motivation

But because we wore our pants saggin’

y’all labelled us gangsters

And said we wasn’t worth the time

There are so many things I never asked you

There are so many things I still don’t know

There are so many things you never told me

And still so many things that I will never know

And why

’cause I went to City High

A school with more drop outs than sign-ups at registration

And the pregnancy rate is at an all-time high

We all know why

Now you would think the classroom’s the place for mental stimulation

But there’s some brothers outside

Sellin’ that stuff

That’ll really stimulate your mind

(Talk about gettin’ high)

There are so many things you never showed me

There are too many things you let slip by

(You let slip right on by)

How can I face a world that doesn’t know me

A world that doesn’t care whether I live or die

And why

’cause I went to City High

So

We don’t need your education

We don’t want no pacifier

We are the leaders of your nation

We’re gonna make sure the world survives

There ain’t no justice there’s just us

What happened to the meaning of “In God we trust”

So as we get older and our children grow up

We ain’t gonna teach them what y’all showed us

There’s too many babies dyin’ before they’re born

(Lord ain’t that the truth)

Too many young ladies cryin’ with a daddy in the house

But not a father in the home

(Now y’all know there’s a difference)

And what about all our young soldiers being led astray

(By this negative music)

What happened to the Isaac Hayes

And the Curtis Mayfield’s and all the Marvin Gayes?

Man we really need ’em today

And there were so many things that needed explaining

But you said it was too late for me to learn

You were suppose to be my shelter when it was rainin’

But instead you left me out here all alone

So I gotta make it on my own

We don’t need your education

We don’t want no pacifier

We are the leaders of your nation

We’re gonna make sure the world survives

There ain’t no justice there’s just us

What happened to the meaning of “In God we trust”

So as we get older and our children grow up

We ain’t gonna teach them what y’all showed us

SPOKEN

For people who did believe

What we could do to change our future

You knew the world was in our hands

Help build them strong so they can withstand

All the pressures

All the war

All the prejudice

And the others who were sure we couldn’t fight the stress in life

For those of you who didn’t believe us

Listen to my words for you

Listen to your children sing to you

We don’t need your education

We don’t want no pacifier

We are the leaders of your nation

We’re gonna make sure the world survives

There ain’t no justice there’s just us

What happened to the meaning of “In God we trust”

So as we get older and our children grow up

We ain’t gonna teach them what y’all showed us

[Repeat x1]
