What did you learn in school today

Pete Seeger

 


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 never die.

I learned that everybody's free,

And that's what the teacher said to me.

Chorus

That's what I learned in school today,

That's 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 policemen are my friends.

I learned that justice never ends.

I learned that murderers die for their crimes

Even if we make a mistake sometimes.

Chorus

 

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 Government must be strong;

It's always right and never wrong;

Our leaders are the finest men

And we elect them again and again.

Chorus

 

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 ones we have had;

We fought in Germany and in France

And someday I might get my chance.

Chorus
