ignorant they are
higher they get faster they drop
blowing a blunt behind the yard
soon i hop they hit the grave
government strives to get them up
ignorant am not
straight A's all year
straight to college i vision
hopes high for me, ignor them behind the yard
ignorant we are
crying cause my mom is illitirate
had no chance to learn
day to day she in the farm diggin corn for the table
ignorant she is i blame
homework choke me up mother watches with sweet tears that am able to flee
so i say to all ignorant we are
ignorant we are
schools behind the yard but insist in smoking and killing your bodies.
