Why do children have to go to school?


Have you ever seen them sitting,
each on a little chair,
in an ugly classroom;
and nobody seems to care
did you ever stop and wonder
why children have to go to school?

Did you ever try to understand it?
I'm sure you couldn't figure it out;
don't tell me you need more schooling,
you know that is what I doubt;
does it make you stop and wonder
why children have to go to school?

The more you think about it,
the more absurd it is
to send children to a kind of prison
and deny them happiness;
is it any wonder
that so many people are confused,
when they have been at school for so many years
to be mentally abused?

Do you still remember
all the time you spent in vain;
the waste of your talents,
the humiliation and the pain;
does it make you stop and wonder
why children have to go to school?

Some people think that schools
are just arcane,
but I say the whole system
is totally insane;
do you still have to stop and wonder
why children have to go school?
Do you ever stop and wonder why
so many children have to cry?
Most people don't recognize evil when they see it
and think that children have to go to school.
