Dear Teacher



Dear Teacher I am listening


I can hear all that you say


And when I put my head down


Dreams don't whisk me away


I'm still here in this classroom


Hearing the same thing day after day


So please stop your lecturing


I have better things due today




I'll add a little note


On the side just for you


To remind you that I have others


Teachers just like you


Who teach a different subject


But give assignments just the same


So the Homework that you give me


Is more than enough for today




You Teachers like to say


That I don't care what lies ahead


But who are you to say


What goes on inside my head


The future's all I think about


It's running through my mind


So you have no authority


To say what isn't right
