You tell us to prepare for college
And cram our brains with useless knowledge
That won't help us in our lives
Won't help us support our wives
Why am I learning about pre-calculus,
If i'm becoming a sports analyst?
Why am I learning chemistry,
If I want to be a deputy?
Our curriculum just doesnt make sense
It's just another public expense
Teach us more important life skills
That may one day help us pay the bills
The things I learn should be relevant to me
To bring out the best me I can be
So please help us change this system
So we can grow to be filled with wisdom
