What Did You Learn In School Today?

Original and similar lyrics
What did you learn in school today, Dear little boy of mine? What did you learn in school today, Dear little boy of mine? I learned that Washington never told a lie I learned that soldiers seldom die I learnd that everybody's free And thats what the teacher said to me And thats what I learned in school today, thats what I learned in school. What did you learn in school today, Dear little boy of mine? What did you learn in school today, Dear little boy of mine? I learned the policemen are my friends I learned that justice never ends I learned that murderes pay for their crimes, Even if we make a mistake sometimes And thats what I learned in school today, Thats what I learned in school What did you learn in school today, Dear little boy of mine? What did you learn in school today, Dear little boy of mine? I learned that war is not so bad I learned about the great once we had had We fought in Germany and in France And some day I might get my chance. And thats what I learned in school today, Thats what I learned in school What did you learn in school today, Dear little boy of mine? What did you learn in school today, Dear little boy of mine? I learned our goverment must be strong It's always right and never wrong! Our leaders are the finest men And we elect them again and again And thats what I learned in school today, Thats what I learned in school

Today Is Mine

JERRY REED "Alabama Wild Man"
Today Is Mine When the sun came up this morning I took the time to watch it rise. As its beauty struck the darkness from the skies. I thought how small and unimportant all my troubles seem to be, and how lucky another day belongs to me. And as the sleepy world around me woke up to greet the day, and all its silent beauty seemed to say: So what, my friend, if all your dreams you haven't realized. Look around, you got a whole new day to try. Today is mine, today is mine, to do with what I will. Today is mine. My own special cup to fill. To die a little that I might learn to live. And take from life that I might learn to give. Today is mine. With all men I curse the present that seems void of peace of mind, and race my thoughts beyond tomorrow and vision there more peace of mind. But when I view the day around me I can see the fool I've been. For today is the only garden we can tend. Today is mine, today is mine, to do with what I will. Today is mine. My own special cup to fill. To die a little that I might learn to live. And take from life that I might learn to give. Today is mine.

Never Miss A Beat

KAISER CHIEFS "Off With Their Heads"
What did you learn today? I learnt nothing What did you do today? I did nothing What did you learn at school? I didn't go Why didn't you go to school? I don't know It's cool to know nothing It's cool to know nothing Televisions on the blink There's nothing on it I really want a really big coat With words on it What do you want for tea? I want crisps Why don't you join the team? I just did Take a look, take a look, take a look. Take a look at the kids on the street No they never miss a beat No they never miss a beat Never miss a beat Never miss a Never miss a beat Never miss a beat Here comes the referee With lights flashing Best bit of the day Now that's living Why don't you run away? Are you kidding? What is the golden rule? Say nothing

School Cafeteria - Version 2

WEIRD AL YANKOVIC
Now, let me tell you 'bout the school cafeteria It's got all the others beat It sells over four million burgers a year Just think, that's almost two pounds of meat My ice cream sandwich is lukewarm But my burrito is much too cold You know a school cafeteria is the only place That sells artificially colored mold You know a school cafeteria believes in mass production They buy those lousy soy beans by the keg I don't like to complain, but in a school cafeteria You can buy a taco and get Bubonic Plague Today in the school cafeteria They introduced a brand new malt It's called boysenberry dysentery Please pass the salt The tunafish sandwiches'll make you ill The enchiladas are enough to kill Before you eat, you'd better make out your will In the school cafeteria today After sixty-three years in the business Our cook still hasn't got The Knack And all the food in the school cafeteria Comes from CARE packages that were sent back Feel your arteries growing hard As you eat another healthy spoonful of lard It's no wonder that the food is so gross The health department is afraid to come close So everybody better hold your nose In the school cafeteria today So listen very closely, all you girls and guys Here's a little message to the wise You'd better not try the chili surprise In the school cafeteria today, oh yeah In the school cafeteria today

Postcard From Paris

JOHN DENVER "The Flower That Shattered The Stone"
(Webb) Dear friend of mine, the weather's fine. Today I saw some ruins of the Roman world's decline. And I climbed all those Spanish steps, you've heard of them, no doubt. But Rome has lost its glory, I don't know what it's about. I wish you were here (when the shadows fall and all the rushing traffic stills). I wish you were here (And the bells are ringing on the seven hills). I make my way to a small caf©, I wonder what you did today. Wish you were here, dear one at home, I just flew in from Rome. And Paris is a postcard, all decked out in color chrome. And so I climbed the Eiffel Tower and prayed at Notre Dame, but I just can't find the romance and I wonder why I came. I wish you were here (On the Champs Elysees, lovers walking hand in hand). I wish you were here (They take one look at me and seem to understand). This city of light is a lovely sight, the first bright star I see tonight. Wish you were here, now I write this from the plane, drinking cheap champagne. Wondering why two people got so far apart. I wish you were here (Here in London where the rain is pouring down). I wish you were here (On this airplane headed back to New York town). I'll never leave you alone again, I'm coming home, but until then, Wish you were here, wish you were here, wish you were here.

Closer

JIMMY EAT WORLD "Stay On My Side Tonight"
Everyday I get a little closer, dear Will you love me darling when I get there? I'll need sunshine, I'll need rest Pour us whiskey, water, kiss Remember me, she said smiling Write my name somewhere safe Touch and taste Fades with space I'll never be who you'll dream Everyday I try a little harder, dear But those things you do, I don't wanna hear You'll have yours, I'll have mine No one guilty, no one right La la la La la la You'll have yours, I'll have mine No one guilty, no one right Everyday I get a little closer, dear Gonna drive fast all night till I get there Not much time we can waste Nothing great left to save
